2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4 cylinger from North America
It's a car
My front brakes have been replaced 3 times.
Signals work only when you turn the hazard light on.
This was my dream car when I first purchased it. Interior & exterior are nice colors. Other than the brakes and turn signals I've had no major problems as of yet. But those are enough problems to be concerned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I also have a 2000 Grand Am SE and had problems with the signal lights. They would go out and in order to make them work, I would have to hit the hazard lite button and they would come back on. Pontiac has a recall on the hazard switch so I took mine in and they replaced it (NC) and have not had a problem since then. Check with the dealer to see what they say. My dealer didn't tell me, I told them.

I, too, own a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am after totaling my 1999.
I'm very unhappy with the 2000 model. I've had it in for service about 6 times since I purchased it in 2001.
I've had issues with the brakes grinding, having to replace pads too often, replacing the hazard light switch, which was causing my blinkers too just quit (and had to pound on hazard light console to get them to work), driver side window motor went out ($400+ to replace), water pump went out, continual leaks with use of AC, and tires wear quickly.
My extended warranty expires in Jan. '05 and I'm going to sell it, even though I still owe $3,700 on the thing. I just don't trust this vehicle. I can't afford to own a car that is in constant need of extremely costly repair.
My 1999 Grand Am was a beauty and I NEVER had it in for repair... not ONCE. I'm getting rid of the '00 and going back to a '99... just because of the reliability of it... and I'm hoping I don't get a lemon like the one I currently have.
