Review of the 2003 Pontiac Grand Am

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

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Lots of standard features, available five-speed manual transmission, crisp handling.

    Price creep has followed sales growth, five-speed not available with V6, cheap interior pieces, iffy crash test scores.

Nightmare

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I've had this car since it was brand new and it's been nothing but a nightmare to own. I'm now seeing many of the problems I've had from other reviewers, including turn signal clicking when not in use,paint peeling, seals. Two weeks after purchase, the a/c went - needed air compressor and it's been downhill ever since. I only have 31,000 but have had the brake pedal assembly replaced due to car picking up speed, even going up hill, needed 2 batteries replaced in less than 3 mos., sunroof leaked, had ignition cylinder replaced 3 times because car wouldn't start; 3 days after most recent replacement, security light has been coming on while driving and dealership says can't disconnect. Run!




Good car

Vehicle: 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car with 96,000 Km. Car is reliable and handles great, looks great also. The only main problem I've had with this car is the front end but with our roads its to be expected. They only have to develop a better wheel bearing. Replaced 6 times in 1 and a half years and the wheel bearings are not cheap.

I love my car!!! I bought it with 21K miles still under warranty. Regular oil changes, tire rotations, etc. this car runs fine. I changed the battery and had work done under warranty just after purchasing, since then, no problems!! I work at a high end car retailer and wouldn't even think of buying from my job. Very reliable car, good engine,love the leather interior, moonroof and "moonsoon" stereo. I get tons of compliments about the chrome wheels too! Only wish it had more grip in the snow and ice, you have to drive carefully in the winter weather. Just a tad bit more HP would make this car better, but it's awesome!!

Full 2003 Pontiac Grand Am Review

What's New for 2003

A new trim level has been added -- SE2 -- that offers buyers more standard equipment and additional options, while the SE coupe is no longer available. All SE sedans now feature cleaner styling thanks to less body cladding and smoother front and rear fascias. XM Satellite Radio is an available option on all models, while the OnStar communications system is now standard on all models except the base SE.

I have a 2003 Grand AM GT 3.4 with 166,000 miles, its hard to explain but will try. When your first taken off the car seems like its holding back, but then once you hit 3,000 rpm's with the gas pedal ...
