I bought this car thinking that Pontiacs are good car. Sure it looks nice on the outside and inside but its a piece of junk. I have put it in the ditch 3x, the handling sucks, the thermostat goes out and the brakes I replace every couple months. Not to mention several electronic things from time to time need to be constantly replaced

This is my second Grand Am. We still own our first which is a 2000 SE. Overall, and aside from the intake manifold problem (which our wounderful dealership repaired free of charge), our Grand Ams have been excellent cars. Not once have either of them ever let me down. Proformance and comfort at superb with the tourqy 3.4 V6, and the leather seats make long trips relaxing. The stock sound system is absolutely amazing, and the red backlit dash is easy on the eyes. I plan on keeping my GT for as long as possible, and im thankful I havent recieved the problems others seemed to have had. Only other probem Ive had was a loose electrical wire, which was fixed in minutes at my dealer.

This has been an exceptional car. I bought it new in 2000 after owning a 1984 V8 Camaro. The performance of the GrandAm GT1 with RamAir was nearly the same as the Camaro, but with much better fuel economy. It has great low-end torque, and accelerates fast. I like to drive hard, and this car handles it nicely, although I upgraded the wheels to aftermarket R1-Racing ZR18's because the stock wheels felt a little flimsy on hard turns. Besides the exterior beauty and sporty performance, I love the interior cabin. The Monsoon sound system is sweet. Passengers routinely comment on the quality of the sound. The dash is nicely laid out and lit in Pontiac red. The leather seats are awesome.

In my opinion the Pontiac Grand Am GT1 is the worst car to ever roll off of an assembly line. While it only had 18,000 miles when I acquired it from a private party known very well to me who kept it very well maintained and garaged, both window regulators broke, the heater knob busted, constant "Check Engine" lights, terrible grinding from the front end (no it wasn't the brakes). Tried to change a headlight bulb yesterday, after an hour and half of trying to get to it ( I finally did) the headlight retainer ring broke. I will never ever buy another gm car as long as i live, especially not a pontiac, i wouldn't even buy one with someone else's money

I bought this car in August for $7500.00. By the month of October the pwr window regulator went out. The Tranny went out at 114,000 miles in febuary. $2800 to repair. other than these fixes its a fun car but buyer beware.
