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.




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




Not a bad deal

I have been very pleased with this vehicle, very dependable. I would buy again if in market for a car with pep that's fun to drive and that won't burn a hole in my pocket. looking into a truck (suv) now. If the "Vibe" had more power I would purchase it.




Luv my car...

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe

Fun to drive...great to look at...comfortable enough to burn miles all day long. I'm used to V-6 engines, but the High Output Quad 4 sure does have some guts to it for a 4-cylinder engine. Also, here in Toronto, my 2- door GT with the High Output QUAD 4 motor is a rare thing...adds to the fun of owning and driving this car where every other car is a Honda Civic or a Chevy Cavalier.




1993 grand am gt quad

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe

We were looking for a nice older third car to put miles on without feeling guilty. The Quad 4 is the only reason I considered this car. We bought it from a GM mechanic in showroom condition with 61k miles and all receipts. However, little problems pop up almost weekly (see below). It’s not exceedingly fun to drive with its poor shifter feel. Quad 4 revs rather slowly for a 175hp 4 cylinder with a 7,000 rpm redline. Suspension is stiff and harsh, yet handling performance is average. Acceleration isn’t blistering, but it’ll move if it's kept wound up. Overall, I'm not surprised with our experience so far. It's almost 10 years old and just showing some age.




Personnal

Vehicle: 1993 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe

My car is great, drives great, holds curves like it owns them. I don't like the arm rests because the door side of the armrests are not secured ( only w/ glue). The lighter keeps blowing fuses. The straps on the sunvisors are streched out so you have to fold them. Climate control knobs really need work.
