2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4 V6 Ram Air from North America
A great bargain for the performance and price
Rotors warped twice, but the problem was rectified by a new rotor design from GM.
Water leaked consistently into the passenger compartment from the moon-roof and the doors.
Bushing on the stabilizer bars dried out and creaked continually.
This car is a good car. It had some issues which were fixed, though I was not willing to be patient with it.
The acceleration on this car is incredible. It's light enough that it doesn't spin its tires a lot, but can throw you through an intersection quickly. While it goes up quickly in speed, it drops back down just as quick, 0-60 is 7.79 seconds, and 60-0 is 2.5 seconds. It has a fast, firm shift, which attributes to it's quickness as well.
While it is nice inside, it does feel like you are shoe-horned into the cabin. One of the nicer things was that all the radio controls, and temperature controls were angled slightly to the driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
