2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4L V.6 from North America
Back to the drawing board Pontiac
The driver side window lets down really slowly. Right at 35,957 miles the motor for the driver side window had to be replaced. Lucky for me the dealer replaced it. Thank god! I bought a 80,000 mile extended warranty.
There is a constant grinding sound coming from the front driver side wheel every time I hit the brakes. It gets even louder after heavy raining. The mechanic claimed he could not hear the grinding noise, but I don't know how he missed it. I went to car X they said I needed new pads and it would help to grind the rotors as well now the noise is even louder. I took the car back to the dealer they said the reason for the sound is because Car X used after market pads.
This is the last American car I plan to purchase unless it's being used for a second car to run errands. I notice from researching many of the foreign models that they have fewer customer complaints about the overall quality of their vehicles. Also, in many of the foreign cars reported problems were usually corrected/modified in their newer models. Next time I'm buying a Honda.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
