1994 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.3L Quad 4 from North America
Nice, Expensive to repair, a lemon
When I first got the car, I had to replace the hub bering. That was about $60 dollars. Then a week later the brakes failed. I got those replaced for about $150 dollars from a friend. I put a new thermostat in it and it still stays over 220 Degrees. One day I was driving down the road when the rear view mirror fell off. One day I was at the store and my car would not start. I had to go get a new timing chain. Maybe about 2 weeks later I was at the car wash cleaning out my Grand Am, when I got done and I went to start the car I started making a REALLY LOUD knocking sound. I drove it home (witch made things worse) and the car would not start. I got it check out and I blew the head on it. That was about $800 dollars to fix it. One week later to that day I went to the grocery store and came out and the new head blew on it so I had the tow truck take it to the junk yard.
I only had this car for about a month and it was nice comfortable and gas was good. I will NEVER purchase another Quad 4 again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
