Great for 11 years old!

Vehicle: 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 2dr Coupe

I bought this car, upgrading from a 94 Taurus, from a co-worker. This car is in great condition thanks to the previous owner. Maintenance goes a long way when done properly and on time. Braking seems soft, even with new brake pads installed. Very fun and sporty, and so far I get about 29-31 MPG highway. Great handling on winding roads, even with sub-par tires. Tires for the GT can be a little pricier and is hard to find good all seasons that don't change tire size, which means recalibrating the speedometer. Overall I am very happy, and make sure you do your upkeep! Acceleration can seem sluggish at times, and @ 110K mi. time for new belts, hoses, and a good tune-up.

Bean a great car . had problem with E- Vac sensor. took months to figure out. brakes used to squeak and sounded like scaping backing out of driveway cold in the morning ONLY. Fine when warm. Great sound system. Been a very good car - sharp looking car. very well kept .super clean inside and out. and clean engine.

I bought this car used with 33,000 miles on it. It now has 50,000 miles on it. I have had not one problem what-so- ever. I have yet to replace brakes (need to in about 3,000 miles), tires, or any other part. The car works great, sometimes it has some trouble turing over, but it has always started for me. I have babied the car, changing the oil every 3,000 miles and being easy on the brakes and accelerator most of the time. It is unrealistic for you to beat on a car and expect it to run well, if your hard on the brakes expect to change them alot, if you hot rod the car around expect to get bad gas milage. The car definitly has kick to it, and is equiped with a very good sound system.

ME and my car have a love hate relationship. I love the layout of it, the features, and the speed, but I hate the gas mileage you get on it, and also the shortness of brake life. I have heard that you get better gas mileage if you use synthetic oil. Gas mileage is fine as long as you don't hotrod it like I do.




Great car!!!

I absolutly love my Grand Am. I have had only one problem at the dealership - - clogged fuel injectors and (i am told) that is probably the previous owner's fault in putting cheap gas in the car. It's a blast to drive and in my humble opinion, although I might be in the minority, it looks GREAT!
