I just recently bought this Pontiac Grand Am. I bought it with 96,9xx miles on it. The car is still in good condition, just has lots of highway miles on it.
The problem I have had so far is that the oil light comes on when the car has been parked for a period of time long enough for the car to completely cool. I noticed that if I start it, and shut it off, then the light goes out... but if the car sits for some time, the light comes back on. The oil is changed, and the oil light is not on, it just keeps telling me to check the oil for some strange reason.
I also noticed that the transmission shifts kind of late to me. I have never had a car like this, so maybe this is normal, but the transmission to me seems like it changes about a second late.
This has been a really nice car so far.... I would recommend a Grand Am to anyone interested in buying a new car. This is my first Grand Am, but almost everyone in my family has one. I plan to keep this for about a year, pay it off extremely early, and trade it in on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT.
Pontiac is a very reasonably priced car, and very reliable. I would recommend the Grand Am to anyone.... they are truely a fun car to drive. I love when I am behind the wheel of my Grand Am.
