  2. Winter Tire/Wheel Set of 4 with TPMS

    Parts for Sale Archive
    SOLD! Unfortunately, I no longer have my 2008 G8 GT so I am selling the dedicated winter wheel/tire setup that I had. I purchased them in 2009 and used them for the winter of 2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12. Bridgestone Blizzak LM-25s in 245/45-18 on Moda MD-2s with TPMS sensors. The tread can...
  3. OFFICIAL THREAD: Recall for airbags ALL G8s

    Tech Lounge
    The Pontiac G8, the brand's last hurrah before GM completely discontinued its operations, is now subject to recall due too concerns regarding the front passenger air bag module. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the air bags may suffer from a possible...
  4. Rear pads looking like they are wearing faster than the front is it because . . .

    Suspension / Brakes
    65K changed only the fronts I changed out the front pads at 65K, the rears still had 50% on them. At 100K (next march or so), I'll be replacing all 4 rotors and the pads. Pretty good for OEM.
  5. 4 Hubs, then Wheel Speed Sensor, then Axle Shaft

    Drivetrain Tech
    Final post from me. I finally got the check from the dealership. It is dated 8/22/11 but the postmark on the envelope shows very clearly that it was mailed yesterday. Let's see what GM corporate has to say about being lied to.
  6. 4 Hubs, then Wheel Speed Sensor, then Axle Shaft

    Drivetrain Tech
    Going on day 31 of frustration Ok, after talking to GM corporate and getting just about nowhere for a week, got word from them on Wednesday, August 17th that the dealer needed my receipt from the rental. No problem. Brought it in on the 18th. The service manager assured me that he would have a...
  7. 4 Hubs, then Wheel Speed Sensor, then Axle Shaft

    Drivetrain Tech
    Ok, called yesterday to follow up and got the old, "Need to talk to the service manager and he's on vacation this week". I wrote everything up and sent it to GM Corporate to see if they can get me an answer now.

    G8 GT Talk (V8)

  9. 4 Hubs, then Wheel Speed Sensor, then Axle Shaft

    Drivetrain Tech
    I just took a look at the receipt and noticed something: There are 3 bearings listed. That means that one of the front hubs had to be re-replaced. Either that or there's a 5th wheel I know nothing about. I will say that the car feels very close to new now. All the work they did made a big...
  10. 4 Hubs, then Wheel Speed Sensor, then Axle Shaft

    Drivetrain Tech
    The answer was, I'll check into it. I'll call on Monday to follow up. If I get a no, it'll go to the dealership owner. If it's still a no, it'll go to GM Corporate. If it's still a no, i dunno, maybe I'll post my receipt and write up the whole thing for my blog and distribute this information...

    1980 Pontiac Grand LeMans Wagon I loved that beast.
  12. Control arms done, now a wheel bearing?

    Suspension / Brakes
    I'm going through the bearing/hub issues right now. They replaced Passenger Front 3 weeks ago. They replaced Driver Front today. Still getting the hum at 45 and up. They have ordered both rears and they (and I) hope that will address the issue. I've had the LCAs replaced 2 times each on the...
  13. How many miles on your G8?

    Lounge
    70,660 and I bought it new in November 2008. 50 mile one way commutes will do that to ya. About to go get the second set of LCA replacements. Other than that, a steering rack in October 2010 and alternator in June 2009 and regular maintenance. Not bad with GMPP up to 110K.
  14. Brake Saga- Some people just don't learn

    Suspension / Brakes
    When you want to buy something on special and the price triples when you get to the store, you wouldn't call that a bait and switch? There are professional opinions on both sides of the argument whether you always replace rotors when you replace pads or not. With the facts of my situation (no...
  15. Brake Saga- Some people just don't learn

    Suspension / Brakes
    I doubt I would as the pads in front were still ok (about 1 mm left) and the brakes were working properly. They did check the rotors when they pulled the pads. I was doing preventative maintenance, not having a "noise" or "problem" checked out. While I do understand the concerns presented as...
  16. Brake Saga- Some people just don't learn

    Suspension / Brakes
    I had my car checked out about 6 months ago when I had my 50,000 mile service performed. They said the brakes were very clean and I could certainly go a while with them still. I drive mostly Highway miles so it wasn't a huge surprise that they were still ok. Since the brake pad deal was...
  17. Special Warranty Coverage 10283?

    G8 GT Talk (V8)
    Ok, got the letter, didn't connect the 2. I just replaced mine last month so I will be going for the reimbursement.
  18. What is your other vehicle?

    Lounge
    Mine: 2008 G8 GT Wife: 2008 Audi TT Both surprisingly good with winter tires on.
  19. Dealer Lost the Key

    Lounge
    According to the manual, only transmitters synched at the same time as the newest will work. If the key was lost, it would not work. If the key was pocketed by someone and they had it programmed along with the other 2, then it would. If my car is snatched, I'll have a good idea the direction to...
  20. Dealer Lost the Key

    Lounge
    Ok, final update from me. I went and got the new flip key and they programmed it. It works great. So, I'm back to where I was 2 weeks ago. A working flip key (now the emergency key) and a working fixed key (now the keychain key). I've received 2 new transmitters in one week. Beantown and Dan...
