2000 Pontiac Grand Am SE 4.0 liter from North America
This car is terrible, and GM needs to do something to fix these cars
Lets first begin with the mirrors. I have had to replace both drivers and passengers side mirrors.
I had to replace passenger side and drivers side rear window motor.
I had to replace the circuit board for the rear lights.
I had to replace knobs on the A.C./heater, and also the fan does not work until it is on 3.
I also replaced the hazard unit that kept going on and off, and which controls the security.
The car would also would not start unless I had to wait 10 minutes.
The funny thing is my friend has the same car as I do, just the GT, and he has had most of the same problems I have.
And now I have a huge oil leak.
I would not recommend you buy this type of car. So many things go wrong with it and it just not worth putting the money for this type of car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'm sure there must be some issues with the Grand Am or there wouldn't be so many problems cited in these comments. All I can say is that in 9 years I've spent a whopping $27 in total repairs on mine. $10 was for a headlight bulb and $17 was for front brake pads at 70,000 miles (the rear are still original).
Members of my Grand Am club have never reported ANY of the problems seen in these comments, and some of these cars have over 200,000 miles on them. Mine looks, drives and feels like brand new. We've spent less on the past 10 domestic vehicles we've owned than on any ONE of the 3 Japanese imports we stupidly bought since 1985. I'd stick with GM any day.
