The little Pontiac that won't quit
The coil pack went.
The right side steering rack mounting bracket broke.
The transmission was rebuilt at 105,000 miles.
The left front fender rotted badly and had to be replaced.
The timing chain was replaced as a preventive measure.
People complain about power windows, the roll up windows in this car were a nightmare. The driver side window was the worst. The regulator was replaced twice and the window was still hard to crank up. I put in a handle from a Ford van because it was longer and gave me better leverage.
This was a great commuter car. It had great fuel economy and was pretty quick too. Comfort wasn't a strong point, but it's a Grand Am, not a Grand Marquis. I sold it to a friend who is still using it with no problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
