My 8-Month Nightmare
By sinaskafitch on


1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4dr Sedan


8 months ago, I bought a Grand Am off my friend at 140,000 miles. Turned out to be the worst decision I've made since. If I wasn't friends with a mechanic, this car would already be in the scrap pile. I've had to give it new wiring, a new starter, 2 new engine belts, a new mechanism that turns the engine belt, a new rear arm bar, and I had to remove the horn because it was faulty. The car also has a fuel pressure problem so now I pay out the nose for gas. I hate everything in this car down to the cup holders! It's cars like these that ruined Pontiac. This car is breaking my bank and my patience level. Hopefully getting a new car this week to get rid of this nightmare

Best Features

It steers pretty comfortably, and I like that the back seats fold down for extra trunk space.

Worst Features

-To say the quality of the parts were disappointing would be the understatement of the year. -Worst cupholders in existence. -Awful on gas. -Not meant to last past 120,000 miles.
