2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE1 gas from North America
In a year, I replaced tie rods, a bad strut, the rack and pinion, all the hoses, a fuel switch, the back seat is loose, and it is starting to rust out.
The ride sucks. OK gas mileage, maybe 21 mpg.
There are good things; it is good in the snow with my Hankook tires, and has good pick up.
The fit's bad, finish is poor; there are large gaps in the dash, where each dash part goes together. I hope it lasts till I get a real job.
Maybe GM should learn from Honda and Toyota from craftsmanship. This most likely the last GM car I will ever own. I hear that the 07-09 Flex fuel motor burns oil, and GM thinks it is OK.
This Grand Am is a piece of crap. It's going to cost $1000 to fix the rack and pinion steering, so make sure the rack is good, and have this car checked out if you buy one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
