1992 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car for a great price
and have had it for 80000 miles. It
has been extraordinary and i have no
complaints. I brought it in for a few
minor repairs, which paid off in the
end. Im now upgrading to a 98 grand am
and can only hope for the same results.

1992 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my car from a friend. I've
always wanted a grand am, and let me
tell you I will never buy a pontiac
every again. The day after I got the
car it was leaking anti-freeze a week
later i spent 300 more dollars for
plugs, breaks, and other small repairs,
now this week I found out I need new
fuel injection and there is a small
leak in the head gasket. This car was a
waste of time and money. I suggest
buying a V6.


Best Features

Trunk room and pop holders..


Worst Features

Recall Quad 4 all together.

1992 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owened this car for over 8
years, purchased used in excellent
condition. The car now has 100,400
miles on it, mostly local, stop & go
driving. It is highly reliable. My
most expensive repair was under $300
and very, very few repairs were ever
required. The car still looks and
performs like new. Absolutely no rust
and the finish shines.


Best Features

Fold-down rear seat, power windows, sound system, headlight/ running light system, appearance and body integrity.

Review

Extremely reliable. I bought it with
91,000 miles, and now it's up to
151,000, with only minor maintenance
required. It needs a new fuel
injector, new plugs and wires, but
other than that, nothing fancy. I will
admit, it's hard on alternators at
times, as well as brakes. Also, the
paint has blistered terribly, but I
think this is either a recall issue,
or a poor quality aftermarket job.
Overall? Incredible, fun car! I love
it!


Best Features

Hmmm... it's get up and go [I have the 3.3L v6], the fact it stomps the daylights out of those silly little Civics.. the handling is superb, even though the suspension's not at it's best. Extremely reliable.


Worst Features

Non-OEM alternator [high power], hyperwhite headlights and fogs [the stock ones seem a little dim..], and if you plan on installing a custom stereo, make sure you dynamat the car headlights to tail lights, because it loooves to vibrate...

1992 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan


Review

In april of 2003 I turned 16 I started
to look for cars. When I finally found
a nice car i got it. It was in great
condition with 120,000 miles. It was a
1992 Pontiac Grand am SE with the
crappy quad 4, which I didnt now about
at the time. I had it registered for 2
weeks, then the headgasket blew.Then I
found out it's going to cost $1100 to
fix.They definitally should have
had a recall on the quad 4. Its a nice
car with a bad motor, there very
unreliable. After I get it fixed it's
going up for sale. So if you ever get a
Grand am please do the smart thing and
get the V-6 (Like my cousin did).


Best Features

Rides like a Dream. Easy to change to a CD player. Pretty good style. Good room, good size trunk and very comfortable. And the cupholders in the glove compartment is pure genius


Worst Features

The quad 4 should have never been made, definitally needs a recall. The tires are too small and thin. The motor needs more than 115hp to move this 3500lb car. Too much plastic, large nose,And have the seat higher so you can see the hood.
