Review of the 2001 Pontiac Grand Am

  • A viable import alternative, but don't expect Camry- or Accord-like resale values or build quality.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sporty styling, lots of standard features, available five-speed manual transmission, crisp handling.

  • Cons

    Price creep has followed sales growth, true sport sedans need a five-speed with a V6, odd interior styling.

  • What's New for 2001

    For 2001, the Grand Am gets audio improvements, a wheel upgrade and revised paint choices.

Electrical

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

An excellent vehicle for good acceleration and power but have had numerous problems with the anti theft system, tire wear is below average, thermostat problems and just replaced alternator at 140,000 mi. It also goes through brake pads quite frequent. Gas mileage not bad for a v6 with power if it was only more reliable.

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

This car was previously my mother's car, but when I turned 16 I took over the ownership of the car. At first I did not like the look and feel of the car but it grows on you. I have made several modifications to the car (grille inserts, cold air intake, decals). I plan to convert the car to rear wheel drive, put the LS9 engine in, and put in a 6 speed manual transmission. I also want to customize the interior as well. I get great gas mileage (average 28 in the summer). I had to replace the water pump and intake manifold gasket each once but I've had no problems now for about 20000 miles. Everything breaks eventually, just spend a little extra money and time to take care of the car. I wash mine 1 per week.




First car :(

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

After one month I noticed a gas smell. Took it to the shop and had a gas leak. Both side mirrors fell off and many electrical things broke inside (seat adjustment, side mirror adjustment). A year later the car just plain quit working. Needed new fuel injection, fuel pump, and fuel filter. Then I totaled it. Sad ending to the pony. I loved the vehicle but too many things went wrong with it.
