Great first car

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

This was my first car. In terms of reliability it was flawless. I drove the car into high mileage territory and always used high mileage oil when getting it changed. The first major hiccup started just recently when the on-board computer started triggering the security switch in the middle of driving - causing the engine to stop. But mechanically it's always just hummed along.




97,000 and still going

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Bought this car new in 2001. Only problems was computer went out at 3000 miles. Was replaced under warranty. Have not had all the problems like most people have. (Guess I got a good one.) Did replace driver's side window motor. Of course the rear speakers are blown. Isn't everbody's?




Looks nice

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

I just traded mine in last weekend, but wanted to recap 6+ years of ownership. The car was a good and fun car to drive, but it did have issues. First, the engine went after 120k miles when the timing belt went. Then the Body Control Module went costing me another $1000. The wheel bearings started going after 75k miles. The window regulator on the drivers side went in less than 4 years. Finally the blower motor went in under 4 years. The car did provide a good smooth ride and got great gas mileage (30MPG).
