Review of the 2004 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 has crept up in recent years, five-speed not available with V6, cheap interior pieces, iffy crash test scores.

  • What's New for 2004

    An upgraded four-speaker sound system is now standard on SE models, while an MP3 player is standard on uplevel GT models and optional on all others except the base SE.

Good

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

all the people who complain about security issues with this car just need to cut the little tiny yellow wire that goes to the ignition and there will never be another issue with starting it again. its a simple and free fix. you just have to find the bundle of 3 little tiny wires and cut yellow one. seriously people dont complain about something that you can fix so easily. never had any issues with anything else other than brakes and starter which will need to be replaced in any vehicle eventually

GM used to build solid cars What the hell happened? Save your money and purchase a quality vehicle. A wealthy friend of mine put it best..."You need not be rich to afford a BMW, but the opposite is true about owning a domestic". -Buy something well built and you wont break yourself in repairs. I'm sorry but we did it to ourselves, America. We lost the zero defect mentality and embraced the quick buck slap it together and send it out the door philosophy.

I see some reviews saying that their car (having been bought used) isn't reliable...well some upkeep is required to keep a car moving (duh)...Mine has been great with only the expected items (brake pads, spark plugs) being replaced. Has never failed to start and has the original battery (04) in it. Don't blame the manufacturer if you bought a used car and it isn't up to par---maintain it! I've changed plugs and brake pads and thats it for replacement items. Proper oil changes will do wonders....




Great car to have

I've had this car ever since the summer of 2006 and it is a great car to have especailly if it is your first car, i haven't yet had anything wrong go with my car with is a huge plus, and I always get complaiments from people saying how nice it looks and how they would love to drive it. I have added some things to the car in which if ur like me and want more horsepower and torque you can easliy get if u replace certain parts like instead of having that ram air i replaced that with a cold air intake to add some horsepower which it did and i have also added many other parts which if u have the money you could do and my i also add this car sounds great with a pair of 12' subs

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I got my 2004 Grand Am GT with SC/T package last November. When i first got it i loved it but two weeks into owning the car i've replace the EGR, two ABS wheel hubs, a water pump, and got a hole in the muffler, so replaced that too. The GM shop told me after fixing the water pump to save my money cause my tranny is going out and my mass control arms are going bad too. All these problems and not even had the car for a year. oh did i mention i got the car with only 30 thousand miles and i drive all highway!




Need to fix that security

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I love my car, but lately, if I turn off the car to run into the store (example), I have to leave the key turned on for 10 MINUTES to get that stupid light to go out so I won't be late for work!! This is ridiculous! I have already planned to start leaving earlier for work, as I have kids to drop off and errands to run. Too costly to have it fixed and the gas mileage SUX!!!
