Decent for 13 year old car
By md on
1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan
I bought this car for $600 last January. I took it to a mechanic before buying it so that I would know there were not any major issues and what to be prepared for in the future. The transmission, motor (although it does need a new motor mount)and other major components seem to be doing well. In the past year I have had to replace the tie rods, CV joints ($500) heater core (300) and serpentine belt. I do not feel that this is to much work to put into an other wise reliable car for the cheap price I paid. I now have 188,000 miles and expect it to continue going strong. I think people who have had back experiences with this or any car did not do their homework or mechanic check before buying
Fuel efficiency. Fun to drive
Window motors are horrible!! How did this not get fixed by a recall or something. Motor mount broken, I have never heard of this happening!
