A lot of car for the money, but don't drive it in the winter

Faults:

Erratic idle at times.

Performance seems to vary from week to week (maybe gasoline).

General Comments:

Generally, the car's performance is very good.

Acceleration and braking are respectable.

The suspension system is stiff, which yields a very agonizing ride over roads with frost heaves.

Very roomy and lot's of headroom.

It's a great car comfort wise and to look at, but there are still some problems that must be addressed in regards to brakes and front ends.

This is my second Grand Am, my other one was a 96 and I never had any problem with it. I still love this car and I'm not ready to give up on it yet!!!!!

I have a 2000 Grand Am SE. The front brakes have been replaced 3 times, with only 15,000 miles. Excellent car to drive.

Well to update on my Sept. 2000 comments, my car now has 42,000 miles on it and it's on its 5th set of rotors and they have changed the calipers twice. Ones from Australia (which took 3 weeks to be installed), and recently they put the U.S. made ones back on. It still has the same problem!!!

Now I'm trying to find a way to get out of this problem car. Oh yeh, I've also had a lot of problems keeping the front and rear alignment. And I DON'T live on a dirt road or anything. Its been aligned at least 3 or 4 times now. And has ruined at least 2 sets of tires.

Anyone else have this problem???

Summary:

Wider is better........

Faults:

Not a thing has gone wrong with this car, I think Pontiac has worked all the bugs out of this generation.

General Comments:

Due to the fact that I bought the car at below MSRP and the Invoice price, there is a lot of performance in it stock. The good thing is, there are all kinds of performance accessories out there that are not as expensive for other comparable cars, such as the V6 Mustang. As long as you care about your performance car, it will care about you.
