About Pontiac G5

As a rather obvious example of "Badge Engineering", Pontiac G5 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its famous brand Pontiac in North America between 2007 and 2010 as a compact car. Originally introduced as a rebadged version of Chevrolet Cobalt, G5 was also the successor to the Pontiac Sunfire. But after being only for about three years, the production of G5 was ended due to the demise of Pontiac brand in 2009, G5 was eventually replaced by the Buick Verano in 2010.
Pontiac G5 was originally introduced in Canada as a sedan in 2005, being called the Pontiac Pursuit. Then a renamed version undertaking G5 name was available as both a sedan and a coupe. It went on sale in 2006 as a 2007 model in the United States. It came in two trim levels: base and GT. During its lifetime, Pontiac G5 was powered either by a 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 148 hp and 152 lb-ft of torque or a 2.4 L I4 producing 173 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque. Both engines sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels.

Pontiac G5 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though boasting excellent performance and ride quality, Pontiac G5 lacked sophistication and quality, it is not a very choice for buyers who pursue a high-quality sedan. And if you own a G5 and want to have it serve you long, then these common problems on it deserve your extra attention:
First, engine failure again becomes a terrible and troublesome issue for Pontiac G5 drivers since it often indicated the vehicle bordering on breaking down. In case the worst result arises, you had better diagnose it as soon and early as you can. According to experienced G5 owners, these are symptoms of this issue for your reference.

Once the Check Engine Light comes on, please inspect the G5 spark plug, air inject check valve, exhaust manifold, exhaust manifold gasket, air filter and oil filter immediately.
Second, issues on suspension, steering and braking systems are also very hard to handle with for Pontiac G5 drivers. But in general, suspension failure could bring about clunking noises and excessive vibration from the front of the vehicle as well as poor handling due to intentional steering and loose steering wheel, the G5 steering knuckle, wheel bearing, shock absorber and sway bar bushing are always the culprits. And steering failure could be attributed to the G5 steering column cover, tie rod and power steering pump.

Never underestimate the function of routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Pontiac G5 since it sometimes could be your lifesaver.
