About Pontiac G3

Being the shortest-lived Pontiac model of all time, Pontiac G3 was produced by a South Korean automobile manufacturer and a subsidiary of General Motors GM Korea Company (Daewoo) in 2009 as a subcompact vehicle. Originally introduced as a rebadged Chevrolet Aveo under Pontiac brand, G3 was only used in the United States since the spring of 2009. But because GM went bankruptcy shortly in 2009, which necessitated the discontinuation of the Pontiac brand, the Pontiac G3 is no longer manufactured after the 2010 model year and it was replaced by the Chevrolet Aveo completely.
Pontiac G3 was produced for the 2009 model year only as a 5-door subcompact hatchback. And it came in only one single trim level. Equipped with steel wheels, fog lights, a rear spoiler, a steering column, manual accessories, air-conditioning and a 6-speaker CD/MP3 stereo with an auxiliary input jack, Pontiac G3 was powered by a 1.6 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 106 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. And this engine sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels. Though only being manufactured for one year, the G3 is the lowest-priced offering from General Motor's sport-oriented brand and enjoys fuel efficiency, space efficiency and value for the money.

Pontiac G3 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting responsive steering, adequate ride and good fuel economy, Pontiac G3 is a good choice for a family-used car. But since it is not a young model, these common problems on G3 deserved your extra attention:
First, the worst issue on Pontiac G3 is the engine failure. Once the engine has something wrong, the vehicle will meet the risk of breaking down, thus, diagnose and solve it as early as possible is the only right move. According to some experienced G3 drivers, you can sense this issue from some recognizable and simple symptoms. First of all, when the engine starts to wear, it will give out whining or metallic sounds, then an odor of fuel will fill the car, you may also see oil dripping from the filter and leaking coolant. Then engine performance decreases dramatically so that it runs roughly, misfires, stalls and even suffers from starting issues. And a decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy, as well as lit Check Engine Light, are warning you to inspect the G3 fuel injector, spark plug, fuel pump, fuel filter, throttle cable, coolant reservoir, oil pan gasket, air filter and oil filter.
Second, issues on suspension, transmission and steering system also troubled Pontiac G3 drivers a lot. But these problems also manifest some signs to warn you. For example, suspension failure often sends out signs such as noises from underneath the vehicle, uneven tire wear, bouncing while driving, tilting vehicle and poor handling, and G3 coil springs, leaf spring bushing, and leaf spring plate are often the culprits. And transmission failure could be attributed to the G3 shift cable, slip yoke, automatic transmission filter and transmission pan. As for the steering failure, please pay more attention to the working condition of G3 power steering pump and power steering reservoir.
