1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 4dr Sedan

Review

Where do I start. I purchased this car in 2000 and was initially happy with it. Then after 8000 miles the front brake pads were worn and badly warped. With brand new ones installed, I lasted another 22000 miles,while the rear shoes and drums never wore. The dealers response was don't ride the brakes. I downshifted every opportunity and with 90% highway miles, that never really was a problem. So after about 6 adjustments and rotors I purchased slotted rotors. 48000 miles and no problem. Brake bias problem some engineer overlooked I assume. 2 water pumps, starter, intake manifold gasket,etc. With all the preventative maint. done one can wonder what would happen if you slipped on one service.

Best Features

The gauges look nice.

Worst Features

Brakes need major improvement. Reliability with very important gaskets should be a priority on GM's list. I would wipe the slate clean and start with a whole new platform cause this just needs a major overhaul.
