3300 engine. Great Experience, first car
By afrodave on
1992 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe
I was given this car for my 16th birthday in the early 2000s.
when I got it it had around 75,000 miles on it and I drove it up to 130,000.
Car has been a great car, no major repairs needed.
I have been in 3 or more low speed accidents with it and it has kept me safe and keeps on rolling.
Gas mileage was around 26mpg averaging highway and city together.
I kept up on maintenance and oil changes and the car have been great!
I like that the engine is fairly easy to work on yourself for those DIYs.
The car is inexpensive to fix.
The 3300 engine I'm told is a pretty solid GM engine and that holds true to my experience.
The things I don't like, the doors are really heavy so beware if you open one and it comes slamming back into you.
