Still Blows Me Away
By joser94 on
1998 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe
I have owned this car for a little over a year now after getting it pretty cheap and I love it and hope to have it for years to come. First few months were okay but did a few weird things that required some work to be done to it but no problem because I do just about all of it myself. It growled when accelerating from a stop but surprisingly fun to drive and extremely cozy in the fall and winter!
I got 3 months/2000 miles out of it and the engine bearings went bad, guessing the previous owner didn't keep the oil changed. Since then all has been well with it. I have replaced the brake pads and rotors, drums and shoes, mounts and alternator but it makes up for that wit it's power!
Power, Sound of engine, handling after suspension and tire upgrade, sporty looks after minor exterior upgrades, potential of 2.4l engine
Engine mounts seem to weaken quickly, engine lubing isn't sufficient, and rides rough on bad roads even after upgrades
