A piece of junk
Brakes and rotors were replaced before 2 years of ownership and again another 2 years later.
The fuel regulator, fuel pump and fuel injectors were replaced because the gas smell inside the car was so bad, it could make the driver pass right out.
The struts have already been replaced because of a "malfunction".
The serpentine belt has been replaced twice already.
The wheel bearing and wiring harness have been replaced twice ON THE SAME SIDE.
The dashboard rattled and when they fixed that, the blower/fan stopped working.
There is a grinding noise when applying the brakes that nobody can figure out.
The intake valve/gauge had to be replaced because it was leaking coolant into the engine oil.
It started leaking oil at year 2 of ownership.
Fuel gauge goes from full to empty on it's own and sensors ring, and turn signal blinkers only work when they want to. (electrical problems)
The battery had to be replaced after 3 years.
The car used to accelerate very fast, but it is very sluggish and labored now.
I had previously owned a Grand AM, but bought it used so when I started having problems with it, I chalked it up to being a used car and bought another Grand AM brand new because I got a great deal on it. However, when problems starting happening after a year and a half and have continued, I will not make the same mistake of getting another ever again.
In reading these consumer reviews, you see the same problems happening in every car, which makes me wonder when my window and alternator will start giving me problems.
I have no issues with the car when it DOES run, but none of that makes a difference when you pay off one problem and another new one arises.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
