I'm considering buying a used Pontiac G-6. Am I getting a potential problem since Pontiac is no longer?
Nope not at all. The G-6 is the same platform as the Chevy Malibu and they still make that car. Any mechanical parts(wheel bearings, thermostats, engine/transmission/suspension parts ect) that will need to be replaced down the road can be bought at ANY auto parts store.
In addition, car manufacturers, in this case GM, is required under Federal Law to produce parts for their cars for 10 model years. After that your local auto parts stores will have parts for many years into the future. I work for NAPA. We can still get parts for Packards, Hudsons, and Studebakers. In fact we have, in stock, brake hoses for a 1939 Packard. Somebody bought them within the last 2 years so the computer re-ordered them! HTH. -Jim
I am still finding parts for my 38 year old Pontiac.
Exactly, my father is restoring a 1958 Star Chief. A 1 year only body style car for Pontiac and he can still find everything for it because of places like EBay, car shows, swap meets and specialty web sites for older cars.
