Good car, minus annoyances

by on
Vehicle: 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

I bought this car about 3 years ago, it had 160,000 miles on it. Since then, no real problems other than an oxygen sensor went on me. It runs fine, gets pretty good mileage, and is reliable. The only problem are small things, like it leaks water when it rains, coins easily fall into the lighter and blow fuses, the front passenger door stopped opening, and my rearview mirror fell off at one point. It's annoying stuff, but hey the car runs.




Money eater...

Vehicle: 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

Ok I had the car for 1 year before all the chaos started. I ended up replacing for starters the alternator about 6 times in one year. I also replaced the battery, computer chip, radiator, water pump, had it tuned up twice in one year because it was missing/skipping (seemed like it would cut off)...did not run smooth. I was breaking down about every 3 months or so and the money spent on trying to maintain. it was unbelieveable, because every item replaced was impossible to get to. Probably will not own a pontiac again. Fixing this was very taxing...




Engineering disaster

All is well, except the foundation. How can you enjoy the vehicle if it leaves you on the road side five to eight times a year. At 95k everything starts to break. Fuel pump, transmission, starter, alternator, transmission again, electrical system, ABS, and so on. What if it is actually an engineering miracle? - Cleverly designed to fall apart at around 100k. Some idiot engineer thought that then the consumer is going to buy another one. Never happens.




Never buy a grand am

Vehicle: 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

In april of 2003 I turned 16 I started to look for cars. When I finally found a nice car i got it. It was in great condition with 120,000 miles. It was a 1992 Pontiac Grand am SE with the crappy quad 4, which I didnt now about at the time. I had it registered for 2 weeks, then the headgasket blew.Then I found out it's going to cost $1100 to fix.They definitally should have had a recall on the quad 4. Its a nice car with a bad motor, there very unreliable. After I get it fixed it's going up for sale. So if you ever get a Grand am please do the smart thing and get the V-6 (Like my cousin did).

Excellent vehicle. Has been reliable for over 7 years. Just now starting to give me problems. After 168000 miles, the transmission (original) is occasionally slipping. The radiator has developed a slight leak, and the power windows up front don't always work when you want them to. Engine is still purring like a kitten. Overall, a great buy. Many years of enjoyment and reliability.




Was nice at start

Vehicle: 1992 Pontiac Grand Am

bought car new in 92'. It works fine now because every part of the Quad 4 engine has been replaced. The computer chip has gone out, new engine, alternator, torque converter, etc... It's got about 140,000 miles on it now, and we're looking to buy a new car b/c the repairs are costing more than what it's worth!!
