Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Pontiac revised their volume-leading sedan for 1999 with all-new interior and exterior features. The vehicle boasts a bold new style while still incorporating appreciated features of the previous Grand Am. Under the hood of the car is a Twin Cam 2.4- liter four-cylinder engine. A new 3.4-liter 3400 V6 is optional on the SE and standard on the GT. A new 4T45-E transaxle debuts in the 99 model, which increases torque capacity. Antilock brakes, daytime running lamps, enhanced traction system, air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, battery rundown protection, 15-inch wheels and tires and power door locks are standard equipment. A four-speed automatic transmission is also standard on all Grand Ams.

Adding cornering lamps in the rear to match the round headlights in front, Pontiac spruced up the styling of their popular passenger car by significantly changing its proportions. The wheelbase is 3.6 inches longer than before (the longest in its class) while overall length is reduced. Front tread increased by 3.3 inches and overall width increased by 1.5 inches. Thin A pillars increase visibility in this athletic-looking car.

The interior is all about the driver with a center instrument panel angled toward the driver's seat and a contemporary circular gauge panel. Surfaces are soft touch and low gloss while controls knobs are easy to see and use. Overall structural rigidity has been improved by 32 percent. Reinforced pillars, side-door guard beams, roof and a full-frame front chassis surrounds the passenger compartment. Noise reduction measures and steps to lower maintenance have also been taken to ensure that the Grand Am continues to be a big-seller for Pontiac.

New for 1999, the Grand Am offers a host of standard and optional equipment as well as a completely redesigned exterior.

Everything Brakes
Sosa MKD,09/05/2002
In 6 months I had a power window control regulator brake and brake the window, then a coolant leak ( a whole load in 24 hours, Air Conditioner compressor died and a lot of other small things like that.
Lemon, stay away, far, far away!
7 years I have owned this car I have had to replace the following: 2 alternators 2 batteries 3 driver side power window motors 2 abs sensors 1 heating & a/c fan 1 head gasket and 1 intake manifold gasket 2 times rotor's replaced 2 times rotor's reground STAY AWAY FROM PONTIAC!
This is by far the worst car I have ever owned, It sits so low to the ground, in the front it has rusted out all over the wheel wells, and the underneathe, even after washing it once a week in the winter. I have had to replace, exhaust, cat, brakes, rotors, plugs, tires. Its not secure when I drive on dirt roads the dust and dirt comes right into the trunk. Very poor quality and the speakers sound awful
grandam it!
sad owner,08/15/2010
This car is the worst thing ever. Got the car w/105K mi on it back in June 2009. While it's got some giddy-up and handles well, it's kind of horrible not knowing if/when the brakes are going to fail. I've had to put a new ABS motor ($2K) in it, and now, less than 6 months later, the whole braking system is shot. And I'm not talking about shoes and rotors, which it eats like a kid eats candy. It also runs really hot, esp. in summer weather. The AC doesn't work, and the driver's window keeps falling. Also it's an automatic, but can't get it to downshift in to 1st with the shifter, something it should be able to do willingly.

Should I lease or buy a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
