1997 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4 quad 4 from North America
A cheap fun ride
Car eats oil like there is no tomorrow. When I did my last oil change at 2750 miles, there was only 1.5 quarts in the system, and no signs of leakage. Any one have any ideas? Check engine light comes on and off, changed O2 sensor, but seems to be the CAT. Still under warranty so I'll take it to back to GM.
Fun to drive, has lots of pickup compared to Saturn's or Honda's, responsive throttle, good gas milleage, and stops on a dime.
Pretty easy to work on, stereo systems are easy to put in. Pontiac should have gone for the 6.5" rather than the 4x6" in the door speakers though, would sound a lot better.
Car is getting 32 miles a gallon of regular, running on Mobil 1 synthetic, and riding on Goodyear Eagles. Hope it lasts me a few years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
