Typical GM experience.
By Kanchou on


1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2dr Coupe


While the interior stuff is nicely located, the seats aren't good for entering and leaving the vehicle. Trunk space is cramped compared to others.

Engine response is good when traction control is off. When turned on, there is a noticeable help with rain/ice slippage.

Several components around the engine required awkward maintenance; Various sensors, valves, a lead pipe from the AC. . . but the engine itself, as well as transmission were strong. This I've come to find typical in GM engines.

Best Features

4 speed automatic. Speaker placement. Steering wheel. Amber panel lights. Spherical vents for easy aiming.

Worst Features

Heavy doors on 2 door. Blind spot to 6' tall people on the driver's side.
