Comfortable, with a good fuel economy, but more money went into repairing than buying the car. : (
Passenger window motor died, and had to be replaced.
Transmission gave out, and had to be replaced.

Muffler blew open, and had to be repaired.

Bad alternator, had to be replaced.
Car has problems starting, doesn't want to run more than half an hour at a time, leaving relatives stranded on highways and roads.
ABS goes out and the brakes fail.
I got the Pontiac Grand Am because I was blown away by the car's beauty, honestly. It had an impressive fuel economy for a V6 engine, so that added to my interest in it. However, if I knew how much work would later be placed into the vehicle, I would have never even glanced in its direction. It is a wormhole for money. It is unreliable, uncomfortable for short drivers, and has cost more to repair than what went into buying the car itself. It was not worth the purchase at all, and I would never consider it an investment.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
