Used 2005 Pontiac Grand Am Sedan Consumer Reviews
I'm not sure how many people are going to look at a review on a 7 year old car but here is mine. My dad bought A V-6 version of this car in '05 almost new, however it was used as a rental car. The only problems we ever had with it were the windows came off track (not a big deal you can fix it yourself), the rear passenger window it dead no movement at all (happened this year), and when i was 10 i had a mini TV and my Xbox hooked up to the 12v outlet and blew a fuse and messed up the outlet. no matter what we do the fuses keep popping. But overall now that its mine it is absolutely perfect for me to go back and forth to high school and work
We bought our Grand Am used with 21000 miles in 2006. It has 71000 on it now, it has been quite reliable. The only issues have been: the turn signal switch clicking (the factory put too much grease, I just removed some with a q-tip and it went away) and a battery. Otherwise it has been a good car. It is hard to see out when backing up, and it has a lot of road noise.
I am a 54 year old woman who has had nothing but Pontiac's. I wanted the 2005 Grand Am because it was the last year they were making it. I bought it new. I loved my 89 and love this one even more!! You cannot go wrong with a Pontiac!
LOVE IT! I bought this car brand new so i've had it for about 3 yrs. NOTHING has gone wrong. Haven't had to fix anything!! Just your typical oil change and brake change. Oh, and had to change the bulb in one of the headlights. NOTHING at all to fix as far as the engine is concerned. A little loud on the hwy but nothing to complain about.
It just seems like consumer guides these days only rate the performance of the vehicle and totally ignore value. I'm here to tell you about the value of this car. I paid $16,000 CDN (after taxes) for a 1-yr old car loaded with features - all power - and with only 23,000kms w/ 2 yrs remaining on the warranty. What can you buy with this money? Zip. My friend bought a 2005 Civic, paid $24,000 CDN and has to manually roll up his windows! His car is so weak on hills that you feel like you need to get out and push. Ha! My GA flies up hills, has tons of low- end power and gets about 25-30mpg. The hype about foreign cars is bull. I'll be driving my GA when my buddy's Civic is mowing lawns!
