1994 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.1 from North America


I love my Dark Green Grand Am GT


Nothing at all has gone wrong with the car. when I bought it it needed a new window regulator and the AC is down, but I don't use the AC so I don't plan to fix it.

Other than that nothing else has gone wrong.

General Comments:

A very good car! very good for the miles on the thing. the most dependable car I ever owned as to date.

Its very speedy and at times I have to slow down since just a tap of the pedal I'm already going 40MPH.

It seems to be a very common model as I always see it around as I'm driving so that also tells me it's a great car.

Bought it off a friend for 2000 bucks he wanted 3500 but was nice to lower the price for me.

I love the car a lot, for those who are unhappy with it I'm sorry to hear that as I love it!

Didn't know I had cup holders in the car until the day I installed the new radio lol.

I love the motor sound of my car with the dual mufflers my car sounds like a race car is driving down the street.

And when I'm out on the town people will always talk about my car and tell me how they wish to own such a car.

And finally its extremely good on gas. 20 bucks fills the thing up and that gas will last me for 2 weeks!

Over priced in parts, Poor design


My Intake gasket blew, (Very common) Replaced that.

Interior leaks on passenger side. Water leaking over the computer.

Replaced many new parts just to get it running right, (Rough Idle), Seems to be very common. The egr valve is bad,

But many other possiblities.

Bought another alternator, Come to find out it was the red lead wire coming from the alternator to the battery was bad. Replaced that.

Replaced the ignition control module (icm). $300.00 at the dealer. $80.00 at a local auto parts store.

General Comments:

When I bought this car I had many high hopes of making the car look sharp. Now it seems the only hopes I have is getting the car to run right. Yesterday after it rained I noticed it is leaking water into the passenger side floor board right over the computer. This car seems to be one problem after the other. Though I only paid $255.00 for it. I paid to much for a car that seems to never end with the problems. After I sell this car I will never own another gm product. All they want is your money!

A small frustration, but great on gas.


I've owned the car for a month and so far all that has gone wrong is my water pump went out, and my radiator blew one of the side tanks. It leaks from the cap for some reason too.

It still needs breaks, an alignment, plugs, and an oil change.

General Comments:

It's quick and fun to drive. It handles pretty well... aside from lack of a decent turning radius for the size of the car in my opinion. I have a 1985 Buick LeSabre Estate wagon with a sharper radius.

Aside from having to disconnect the battery and remove a cover from the top of the engine to replace the spark plugs, the engine is small and easy to work on.

I'd suggest investing in a Haynes manual and doing your own work though. Some places will rip you off on labor charges.

Although it gets me from a to b, I wouldn't get another like it


It uses too much anti-freeze and there is no leak, my starter went out on me, and there is a leak coming from somewhere in the car and every-time it rains puddles form on the floor. Someone with the same model car had this problem. Along with my horn which doesn't work or my inside lights.

General Comments:

Besides those problems, the car has been pretty reliable. 99% of the time the car starts for me, and about $15 does me good on gas for about a week. The interior and exterior is in very good condition.

Sell it, I got rid of my GA because of leaking oil/burning oil and leaking water when it rains. The resale Value doesn't' hold up either.
