1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE 3.4 from North America
This car is DA bomb!
My brake pads were worn down and needed to be replaced.
The ERG valve is bad which keeps bringing the Service Engine Light on.
Tires had to be replace.
Drivers side window will not go down sometimes.
Volume on the stereo sometimes turns up when you turn it down.
This car is fast and it handles great.
3.4 is a good engine. It burns no oil and there are no leaks in the engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've had my Grand Am for well over a year now, and I absolutely love it. I have had no problems with it except the normal oil, breaks, and other maintenance. I bought this car as my first car and feel very safe in it. The engine has a lot of power (3.4L V6) while still getting decent gas economy, and everything works, as it should. It handles like a dream in the snow, and I have never felt that I didn't have good traction. The only thing I would have bad to say about this car, is that the design of it, was not made for snowy areas (I live in Buffalo, and boy do we get snow). In the rear of the car just below the doors in the corner, the snow collects, and sits, so now I am beginning to get rust there, and the paint is beginning to fade from red to pink, but it's nothing that can't be easily be covered with touch-up paint. I get compliments all the time at how shiny the paint still is, and on its sporty looks, without paying ungodly high insurance rates. I love this car and will keep it till the day it dies.
