I bought my 1997 Grand Am SE v6 used in 2008 with 136,000 Miles on it. I loved this car, I spent two winters in wisconsin with -10 degree weather and it started right up every single time. Got pretty good mileage, 26+ as long as I drove properly. Sadly, I rolled it at 85 MPH with 172,000 miles on it, but walked away from that, so I guess it has pretty good safety as well! Only minor upkeep- oil changes, changed brakes and tires one time. Great pick-up for a v6 and never had an issue with it! I miss my Grand Am.
v6 Engine, surprising power and pickup, always started right up, very reliable. Rolled it 4 1/2 times doing 85 MPH and not a scratch on me so very good safety and build quality.
Cheap interior plastics, not very comfortable seats, poor stock stereo and speaker system.
