1996 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2.4 inline 4 cylinder from North America
An excellent car for the money
The factory brakes wore out at 63,000 miles.
The water pump went at 92,000 miles.
The fuel pressure regulator broke a seal and sprayed gasoline all over the engine compartment at 94,000 miles.
The alternator went at 98,000 miles.
The factory clutch went at 110,000 miles.
The factory door panel speakers rattled.
The glove box latch broke.
The driver side window crossbars bent.
I bought the Grand Am GT in 1999 with 60,000 miles on it and it ran excellent.
The car is extremely reliable, even after two pretty bad accidents (neither my fault).
The Grand Am GT as of now has 128,000 miles, and it runs as if it were brand new.
I love this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Glad to hear you have had good luck with your 1996 Grand Am GT. I just bought a used 96 GT with 60,000 miles on it and like it quite well. However, the check engine light is on and when I start it on cold winter days the fumes just about make you pass out. Also, smoke continues to come out of the tailpipes even after the car is shut off.
