Bought mine new in 2001. I've taken decent care of it, oil changes, minor repairs. It's never broken down or had any major issues. Has the same issues as other Grand AM's. Side passenger mirror just fell off, AC has been broken for a couple years, fan speeds 1 and 2 don't work, side mirror control broken. The car itself is no longer waterproof. The factory battery lasted 11 years. Took it on a road trip this summer and actually got really good mileage. To recap, it's been paid for since 2005 and has never left me stranded. Going to drive this thing until it explodes.

we have put 239,895 miles on this car with no major repairs at all. Still runs and drives great,gets 28 mpg highway. auto trans still works perfect.
the water pump at 189k ,replaced radiator at 200k miles.
All you have to do is maintain your car and it will last just like ours. we are afraid to sell this car because it has been so great.
we also have a 1996 gmc suburban with 278,000 miles and only had to rebuild the trans at 167k, and one fuel pump at 103k.
it still runs like new.

I purchased this car from a Pontiac dealership in 2006 with 57k miles on it. I was in love! However within the first WEEK of having it, the Security system failed. Since Ive had this P.O.S., everything imaginable has gone wrong, Security/Passlock failure, Intake Manifold Head Gasket, Power seating failure, Side mirror falling off, failing brakes, interior knobs falling off, AC failure...and the list DOES go on! I was horrified but the recalls and complaints online!.... Would NEVER buy anything from Pontiac ever again!
I'm thinking of buying a 2001 Pontiac Grand AM, 3.4L. 115k miles on it. I'm wondering if any one knows the average life expectancy of this cars transmission? Am I going to be buying a new engine in 2 ...
HI. I recently bought a used 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT and am having what I assume to be electrical issues. Yesterday, while driving on the highway on a roadtrip, the Security light came on and stayed ...
