1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE 2.4 from North America
I would buy another Grand Am, but probably not used
Brakes were replaced 5-6 times within 2 1/2 yrs.
Replaced a security system sensor, which would not allow car to start. I would have to sit in the car until the light stopped flashing (10-15 minutes), try again and car would start. $587 to replace.
ABS light would come on while holding in brake pedal for several mintues. EX. waiting in line at the bank.
Replaced the ignition switch.
I have also had to replace the struts. Strut busted and tore out a chunk from the inside of the drivers tire.
Problems with ETS (Enhanced tracking system) light. This would come on for no reason at all.
I did love my Grand Am very much, but I just couldn't afford to keep sinking money into it. It was at 92000 miles and I often wondered what would happen when it hit 100,000.
The Grand Am has great pick and go for a 4 cylinder.
Great gas mileage.
Very sporty, roomy for only being a 2 door.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
