1996 Pontiac Grand Am Sedan SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had my car since august 2005 and it has been so much fun. it is so great for having fun in whether it be street dragging or what ever it still got the job done in the end it has great low end and high end torque and everything is original except the alternater t-stat battery and starter and of course maintanance stuff. but if i was given the opportunity to buy another one it would be sooo worth it and i was 18 when i bought it on my own and there is not a day where i would go without it. and it handles so quickly and well at 90 mph and when going that fast you look at the road and your doing 110 mph without even knowing it. IT HAS A GREAT SOUND SYSTEM.


Best Features

Well handling at high speeds and quick acceleration and gets me about 250 miles per gas tank on 15 gallons of regular unleaded.


Worst Features

little more time spent on the back seat.

Review

I bought this car for my teenage sons to drive, 98k, SE model, 4-door, 4 cyl, auto. Thought it would be economical and practical transportation. Trans failed at 108k, no heater now - core failure, many repairs required, gas mileage not great for a 4 cyl, 21 city 26 hwy, squeeks, creaks, rattles. In all fairness it was worn out when I got it and you get what you pay for.


Best Features

It has a nice stance, it's a good looking car and didn't cost much. It has a good engine 2.4 4cyl, does not leak oil and continues to run pretty good after 112000 miles.


Worst Features

Components aren't made to last.

Review

American car, American quality but 28 MPG is impressive. In average $100 maintenance per month and you will spend it all for sure. I have 140K miles but still running well. Forget regular gas, it doesn't like it.


Best Features

smooth ride, 28 MPG!


Worst Features

brakes, suspension, power windows
