1994 Pontiac Grand Am SE V6 from North America
The most unreliable hunk of junk I've ever driven
Leak in trunk.
Starter, 3 times.
Exhaust clean fell off.
Basically every fluid in the car is leaking.
Rear view mirror fell off 3 times.
Control arm & bushings.
Even when everything works properly, not fun to drive. Takes turns like a large van. Unnecessarily long nose.
No RPM reader.
Can't move the right side window except manually. It is however pretty quiet; even without a muffler it doesn't sound too bad.
Accelerates okay when everything is working fine.
Do yourself a favor, never buy this car. I've been broken down more times than I can count in my year of ownership.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Maybe you should buy a car that is newer than 21 years old next time.
And why do you need a "RPM reader" (or what everyone else calls a tachometer) on a car with an automatic transmission?

Air filters can be a real costly nuisance.

A car with sporty pretensions should have a tach at the very least.
Plus, the car only has 119k miles, old yes, but hardly ever used.

The car was still over two decades old. Cars deteriorate from age, and cars that sit for long periods of time do so even faster than cars that are driven regularly.

One of my high school classmates bought two 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supremes, which at that time were 24 years old. One had 56,000 original miles, and the other had around 180,000 miles. The 180,000 mile car ran pretty good while the 56,000 mile car barely ran and had multiple issues, all caused from sitting outside unused for years at a time.
