This vehicle was very reliable out of
the 7 years that we owned it. It was
sleek and easy to handle, with a V-6
engine it had a lot of get up and go.
The Pontiac Grand Am is not designed
for carrying lots of people or baggage
though..perfect for a single person or
a couple without children.
The passenger side seatbelt constantly
got stuck in the car door...it never
would automatically retract...I read
that this was a common complaint among
1995 Grand Am owners.
Bought as a program car, this has been
a very effotless car to own. My total
repair bills in 8 years totals less
than 2500 excluding tires/brakes and
that does include a new transmission 3
years ago. Comfortable and reliable I
hate to face the fact that its time to
My parents bought it at 95,000 miles
and i was 15 and eager to drive it. It
went from seattle to san diego and back
overloaded and equipped with a Quad 4
engine, but it did a good job! Now its
at 156,000 miles and it died and is
waiting for a new engine. I'm 18 now
and the car was given to me, i will fix
it up and remember those happy times we
had with the family in that car.
Bought this car with 93,000 miles on it. It now has 102,000 on it my husband drives it 4 hours a day back and forth to work.4 times a week. So far so good. the only problem's with it is: a leaky valve cover, and the fuse to the power locks just blew. Nothing big, both easy fixes. and the air conditioner needs charged.
Car has 97xxx miles on it,
transmission makes a whining noise
past second gear (after some research
I've determinded that other people
have also had this same problem).
Needs to be rebuilt or replaced. Quad
4 engine is has known problems with
cracking. Both driver's and passenger
side window motors had to be replaced.
Hazards recently stopped working. I've
gone through three sets of brakes so
far. Overall, I've put more money into
it than I bought it for used (~$4000)
a few years ago. Now that the
transmission needs to rebuilt, a $2000
repair, I think I'm going to ditch it
and get a new car.
