2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE 1 2.5 I4 from North America
Handles Very well, good gas mileage, and good side impact crash ratings
When I first test drove the car I noticed this grinding popping sound when I would hit the brakes. The driver's seat is falling apart. When I would idle from red lights I would get this gas scent. Also the service vechicle light came on with the traction control light and the ABS light came on also.
Overall this vechicle gives me very good gas mileage and it handles very well. I was in a very bad accident I was able to drive the vechicle home. Of course I had to take it to a body shop to repair it, but overall it was not as bad as bad as I thought.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Did you get the problem fixed with the service engine soon light, ABS light, and traction control light on? I had a 2001 GT that the same thing happened to. It was on for awhile, then off, then was intermittent. I got it to a shop and when plugged into a computer, no code showed up. I never saw the lights again?

I just bought the 2001 Grand Am SE1 model used at 87,000 miles. The very next day after taking it home, I noticed the ABS, Track/control, and Service vehicle soon lights came on and stayed on. Not until I got back home and shut the car off and restart did they go away. I read the owners manual and it stated that if this happens, to shut the car off and restart it. If every time the lights come on, then get the vehicle serviced. If not, then its just the electrical system reseting itself. Also have a problem with the brakes squealing every time I slow down. Could it need new brakes, new rotors, or something else? Any suggestions would be welcome.

My car has not started for me many times. It gets towed to the dealer and of course there it starts and they cannot figure out the problem.
