1999 Pontiac Grand Am SE2 3.4 litre V-6 from North America
Fast and comfortable, but crummy brakes
It already needs an alignment.
The front rotors were warped after 6000 miles.
It is really fast and handles well. The steering is too light at high speeds. The governor kicks in at 3400 rpm in 3rd gear at 112 miles an hour, which is ridiculous considering I got beat by a Hyundai Tiburon!!! I easily can outrun most cars up until that governor kicks in. If I can find an after market chip for it I will be one happy guy!
At 7k miles it got in a mess with a deer at forty miles an hour in an offset crash and came out in relatively good shape.. I cannot say the same for the deer.
The transmission is flawless. Smooth quick shifts and always feels like it is in the correct gear.
The brakes are horrible and are an insult to a good car.
The stock stereo is great with tons of power.
I want a manual transmission!!! The manual tranny is available next year on the 2001 four cylinder engines.. WHY NOT THE V-6?!!!??
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
