1995 Pontiac Grand Am Quad 4 from North America
A problematic car
Had transmission rebuilt at 100,000 K.
Had rad problems at 109,000 k.
Now told that it has blown head gasket and possibly cracked head at 129,000.
This is a nice looking and very comfortable car.
The problems with it far outweigh any good.
Went to GM for help with the head gasket problems, and after making us take it to a GM dealer/mechanic, for diagonosis (who charged us $130 for the same diagnosis an earlier mechanic charged us $15), they simply said that it wasn't their problem and that if the car had only had 120,000 K they might have helped out with it.
They refuse to admit that there is a problem with these Quad4 engines and we are looking for, and would very much appreciate some feedback from others who have had the same type of problems with them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I feel for you. I also have a 99' Pontiac Grand Am and have put more money in repairs than payments. It is odd how so many people can have the same complaints and problems with this vehicle and GM not be responsible. It is currently in the shop for about the sixth time for many of the same reasons as before. To give you an idea the there are so many things wrong with it that the initial diagnostic fee is up to 600.00. This is without any service to the vehicle.
