Question about 2006 Pontiac G6
I thought I was the only one with that stinking problem. The same thing happened around 56K my G6 started to shift extremely hard into 1st and 2nd. The "check engine" light is on all the time. The repair shop I took it to said he couldn't find a thing wrong with the transmission. Now I have someone else out there that has the same problem as me. I think Pontiac really made a mistake when they put this car together.
Omg. i wish i read these comments before i bought my car. My pontiac G6 is doing the same thing. it jerks forward when i put it it in drive and it recently started to do this when i put it in reverse. Then, my engine light came on. I thought it was my air filter that was causing the problem but i got it changed and the **** stopped for a day but now its back to jerking again. Someone please let me know how i can fix this problem. thank you.

I have the exact car w/same exact problem. I was told that ist was the speed sensor, which just so happens to be located inside the transmission w/a $400. repair bill.

I've had this same issue with my 2006 G6 on and off for about a year now. I've had three different places (one dealership and two service places) try to determine the problem and NONE of them have been able to get an Error Code when they ran a diagnostic.
The dealership replaced the battery, my one service guy did a complete tune up, changed the oil and air filter and checked the alternator. Again, he couldn't get an error code either.
I finally read on here that it could be the speed sensor, so I replaced that. It seemed to solve the problem for approx 6 months and now it's doing it again, only worse this time.
BTW - the speed sensor itself only costs about $40 - $50 bucks, so buy the part yourself (go to any auto parts store - but let them know that you need the speed sensor that goes by the transmission, not the one for the ABS) and have a local service mechanic replace it for you. It shouldn't take more than an hour TOPS, so don't let them rip you off on the labor just because you're supplying the part.
So after replacing the battery, spark plugs and speed sensor (not to mention maintenance related work - oil/air filter changes, etc) - I still have SOME sort of an electrical problem.
