2009 Pontiac G8 Seats Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID879746
 Internal NHTSA #10424818
 Model Year2009
 File date03/07/09
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemPurchased vehicle new on 2/28/2009 from local gm dealer. Multiple failures of gm part #92207874. Other failures occurred on 8/11/10 (23,629); 10/27/10 (26,082); and, 7/22/11 (35,300). Communicated my concerns about multiple failures, other causes, and possible latent defect in design to gm customer service team as early as october 2010 (gm case #71-884084012) and again in august 2011 (gm case #71-979563998). Failure of part precludes operator adjustment of seat while car door is closed and if left unaddressed will likely cause chaffing of the under seat wiring harness, shorting out the electrical system. On september 2, 2011 gm customer service team states "gm does not see this as a manufacturer's concern, the seat is designed properly for daily use, and is outside gm factors of control." all replacements have been covered under 3yr/36k mile warranty, but no correction has been made to preclude future failures. Similar failure of other g8 owners is evident on internet forum web boards such as: http://www. G8board. Com/forums/showthread. Php? T=23189 http://www. G8board. Com/forums/showthread. Php? T=30721 currently new car warranty has expired and part is now covered by only 12m/12k mile "repair" warranty. Given history of failures of this part i expect other failures to continue to occur. Also filed same complaint with texas state attorney general and texas motor vehicle board on this same date.
