Good first car

by on
Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe

I bought this car when I was 16 and it was an awesome first car. As long as I kept up on the maintenance, it did just fine. It was a pain to work on because everything under the hood was so crammed together (something quick and easy like changing a headlight turns into 30 minutes of frustration because you can't get your hands down in there). I got a new car after the a/c went out (it's beyond repair) and passed this one on to my little brother. It now has 176,000 miles and still running great.




Hunk of junk

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan

Thee car was nice and solid ride engine and trans were strong then little by little everything started to go bad fuel pump coils water pump ( located between the exhaust manifold and the block ( if that tells you anything) now all mounts decided to go out almost forgot the ignition control module front suspension shot out the ac went out in less than 3 months and the car had only 116k miles put it like this the trans out lasted the car




Still going after shoulda been

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe

My car has 211000 miles on it and the only things that are wrong with it are that people just like to hit my car. The engine is still running smoothly. All I've had to do is change the oil regularly, change the spark plugs, and change out a faulty alternator




Piece of junk!

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan

I purchased my Grand Am 3 years ago. Everything started falling apart at only 107,000 miles! Repairs: rotors, brakes, front struts, shocks, engine overheating and faulty cooling fan! This is unacceptable for a "piece of junk" with such low miles! I would not recommend ANY year Pontiac Grand Am even to my worst enemy! Very, very poor build quality and a big zero for engine or anything reliability!




Junkyard grand am

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan

This car belongs in a junkyard or I will personally drive it off a very steep cliff myself!! I bought this car about 2 years ago and here's the condition it was in: Barely any brake pad lining left on the front, rotors were warped beyond belief (for some reason these Grand Ams eat brakes like there's no tomorrow), severe steering problems, it overheated on the way home (of course, not on the test drive!), a power-steering fluid leak and at a 4-way stop, it just shut off on its own!!! I bought it to put a few repairs into it, the low miles on it (107,000) and the nice exterior and interior design which I find very attractive on these "cars". I do not recommend this garbage to anyone!

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan

I was very disappointed that such a beautiful-looking car (inside too) could be the worst nightmare of my life. Not even 2 days after it was purchased, all problems occurred. After 100K miles, everything is programmed to fall apart. First, P realized the rotors were worn so thin, the car was very unsafe. Same with front/rear brakes. Car was shaking (steering wheel) like crazy! Had hardly any tread on 2 front tires, car actually shut off at a 4-way stop! That's scary. I thank God my boyfriend was right behind me, trying to figure this out! Then, battery went (twice), car started running (overheating in red zone) very hot. No heat in car! Bad heater core. No more Grand Ams ever!!!
