Review of the 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    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, cheap interior pieces.

  • What's New for 2002

    Base model SEs get a new 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine, while GTs get newly styled 16-inch wheels. All models receive a console upgrade and two new exterior colors.

Good car, cheaply made

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

*Note this is a "sports" car your insurance will be expensive I bought it May 2013 (MY first car :D) $1,800 and 147K miles. Mine is a Canadian car (I live in Michigan) so everything is metric/km :S But yeah good mpg, very rust resistant, lots of power for lil' 4 cyl, after 9 months still reliable. Problems: The seats and various useless plastics are breaking. The previous owner wore down the springs, catalytic converter went (I hear this is a common problem, I bought mine online $75 and had Tuffy put it in $45. 12 years old and most everything on the car is factory gear! (Although not good in some cases..)

This is the most miserable car I've ever owned. The same three problems happen every year (window regulator, blower motor, transmission.) I paid $10,000 for it in '04 I've put approx $6,000 into it in repairs. I will never own another pontiac again based on the performance of this car.

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

This car has been absolutely amazing untill I had to get the motor redone. The passenger side window had to be replace once the wire broke and it fell. This is the second one ive owned.. Other than the problems i recently had with the motor.. it has been great I would recommend to anyone as long a they were willing to keep it well taken care of!

Timing chain eats engine

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

So much for regular maintenance and synthetic oil. The 2002 2.2L ecotec has a child's bicycle chain to drive the cams and it, like thousands of others , have failed. GM knew this. They made improvements in 2003. They sent dealer bulletins but not a word to the owners. I think this is a very poor way to do business. I visited the dealership and got a world class cock and bull story with an offer to take my car in trade for $125 dollars. I'm done with GM... forever.




Windows, brakes, steering, now what?

Vehicle: 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

My 2002 40,800 miles, I'm the original owner. I commute to work via train so my mileage stays low & I only use it on weekends around town. It has gone to neighboring states for family visits & a trip from IL to AK once, hence most of the mileage. I've been through window clip replacements, brakes, battery, tires/wheels, and thought I had the steering shakes corrected while under warranty but never could get to the bottom of it. The car shakes at 55 mph so we take my husband's car for trips that require high speed. Just this week I noticed a squeaking/rattle coming from what might be suspension/under carriage? I should have stayed with Honda. Again, only 40,800 miles!!!!!
