NHTSA is also investigating the Pontiac G6 for brake lights that can fail to switch on while stopping. General Motors sent NHTSA more than 1,100 reports of brake light malfunctions on the 2005-2008 Pontiac G6, a discontinued midsize sedan. The complaints, along with at least 314 sent directly by individuals to NHTSA, allege that the light operation was reversed; the brake lights illuminated when the brake pedal wasn’t depressed and switched back off when the pedal was depressed.
Other complaints show that some G6 models were difficult to shift from the park position and that the cruise control system did not function properly. GM also reported more than 14,000 related warranty claims regarding the brake lights. About 551,511 cars may be affected.
On June 5th, General Motors recalled 1,627 cars from the 2013 and 2014 model years to fix brake lights that could flash intermittently and cruise control systems that could switch off. While NHTSA investigations often lead to recalls, this is not always the case. No recall is official until the manufacturer announces it formally to the agency.
