2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4 V6 Ram Air from North America
Great car, fast and reliable
Driver's side window motor replaced x 2.
Passenger side window motor dying, but still working.
Dashboard is cracked and peeling upward from sun exposure (didn't happen until I moved from Ohio to Georgia, with a few years of Georgia sun and no garage to park in).
Passcode sensor malfunctions occasionally.
Turn signals don't work occasionally. Need to pound on the hazard light on/off to get them to work.
I've only performed routine maintenance on the car, changing my own oil/filters every 3000-5000 miles. Tuned up at 100000 miles. Fuel filter changed once so far, still on the second set of brakes.
Fuel efficiency, when I used to pay attention, was as high as 28-29 MPG on the highway. Don't think I still get that, but it's probably still close to 24 MPG.
Riding at highway speed with sunroof open, or any other speed for that matter, is more quiet than my Cadillac SRX, though that may have to do with overall aerodynamics rather than poor design.
Fabric interior is showing some signs of degradation due to prolonged sun exposure, but I'm sure it's normal for any car that sits in the sun.
A/C is still cold!
Overall my 2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT 3.4L V6 has been extremely reliable and cost efficient to own.
The only reason I got the 2002 was because my 1996 Grand Am was squished between two SUVs; I escaped without injury.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
