2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4L from North America
Ashamed to call it my car
Brakes and rotors had to be replaced at 17,000 miles.
At 6,500 miles the paint began bubbling and flaking off.
At 7,000 miles water was leaking on the passenger floorboard due to improperly installed shield.
At 10,000 miles the engine started fluctuating between 200 and 1000 RPM while driving on the interstate.
Problem has yet to be corrected.
At 15,000 miles the cruise control failed.
At 30,000 miles the fuel gage failed.
At 40,000 miles the intake manifold gasket failed.
The steering wheel has faded badly and is starting to come apart.
The buttons and knobs on the radio are peeling.
Originally I was impressed with the styling and performance of the vehicle.
However; since I purchased the vehicle it has been in the shop 18 times for various mechanical problems.
The quality of this vehicle is very poor. I cannot recommend this vehicle to anyone who plans on keeping it for more than a year or two.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I was wondering what ever happened with the fuel gage in your car? I have a 2001 Grand Am SE and the gas gauge registers all over the place. And when the car is idling I can smell a soft gas smell. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to give me more information.

I have had my 2001 Grand Am GT since it rolled off the lot with 1 mile on it and have not had problems with it. Before the oil got hot I had it drop off at my house and changed the oil with Penzoil Synethic 100%. It now has over 100,000 mile and still going strong. BRH.
