Good first car, lots of problems.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am SE2 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


This car is a good first car, but not much more than that. I purchased it from my older brother, who owned it for about 2 years. Before him, it was owned by a family friend and before that a car rental service, so my car has seen its fair share of abuse. When my brother bought the car, it had a leak in the cooling system to where it had to be filled every week or so. It was too expensive to fix, so I've been living with it. The driver side windows have been broken twice. The oil switch broke, which almost totaled the car. The starter went out. The washer pump is broken. The horn is broken. The dashboard is warping up. The keyless entry system is broke

Best Features

The car is responsive and quick to accelerate at around 4000-5000 RPM, just takes a while to get there. My aftermarket sound system is pretty good, although it isn't a part of the car and the original stereo was trash. It is low slung, which makes it seem more sporty.

Worst Features

See problems listed above and then make all the broken parts out of metal instead of plastic. Electrical problems.
