1998 Pontiac Grand Am GT 2.2 from North America
If they want us to buy American, then they need to make more reliable American cars
Anything that could go wrong with this car has gone wrong. The engine is very noisy, the car jerks every time I put it in reverse, but the dealership insists nothing is wrong with it. The sunroof constantly jams, the power windows seem to have a mind of their own, cruise control no longer works, the car just shut off one day as I was driving down a very busy road. I had it towed to the dealership and they told me I had a bad battery. The oil light comes on at random and the dealer says they can't find anything wrong.
This is a very nice looking car and it accelerates nicely, but for what I payed for it, this is totally unaccpetable.
Dealer service is lousy and the mechanics are incompetent.
I will never buy another Pontiac or General Motors product ever again and probably never another American car for that matter.
AS of today, the nightmares I have had with this lemon are over. I traded in for a 2003 Toyota Celica. I couldnt get my things out of that car fast enough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 1989 Pontiac Grand Prix with 250,639 miles on it. Yes, a quarter of a million miles! Never a major repair! GM obviously makes a superb, reliable vehicle. I love the Pontiac Grand Prix. So you keep supporting foreign markets, but keep your mouth shut when you find your self below your earning potential, or even better, when you lose your job.
