G6 Hardtop

5 posts in this topic

I saw a G6 hardtop with the top down in traffic today. Looking at the driver's side, all was fine, it looked pretty good, when I got over in the right turn lane, I got a pretty good look at the passenger side, thats when something caught my eye. There was a huge gap between the fender and the trunk lid right behind the back seat. Not a normal panel gap, a rather large panel gap, one that wasn't there on the driver's side.

Basically, This pic:

is quite representative of how the driver's side looked, the passenger side had a massive gap (appeared to be almost an inch) in the circled area:

I saw one too a little while back...there was a changeover in some parts of the scissor linkage after production start to improve the system

Its hard to gauge the strength needed, they have to be light, but, closing the top on a windy day might tweek the arms out of whack so they have to be beefy

I would hate to repair that crazy linkage

The other thing might be people who have too much stuff in the trunk (onthe one side you saw) sooo limited.

still like em tho

These mechanisms are very complex, no matter what emblem's on the grille.

How do any of us know that the dude did not shut it

improperly or that there wasn't a t-shirt stuck in the

mechanism or some other such fluke?

I've seen stranger things working at dealerships.

It had dealer tags and still had the window sticker in the windshield, so it was either a test drive or a cruise by an emplyee, either way, the people at the dealership should have made sure it was closed properly. And 'blu, I agree, these things are very, very tricky, I'm sure the Eos and C70 will have similar issues over the years.
