2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT from North America
A few days after I had this car it wouldn't start. Should have been a sign.
Battery cables needed to be replaced.
Had the Goodyear tires replaced because of a grinding noise.
My warranty just ran out 3 months ago and at 68,000 kms, my head gasket blew. $1911.00 Canadian dollars to fix at a GM dealership.. then again, the spark plugs were $15.15 x 6.
They also informed me that my control arm bushing is going to be another $600.00.
I contacted GM and they are reviewing it, but I know I will get nowhere with this.
GM has lost me as a loyal customer.
I've owned GM since I could drive and have had nothing but serious problems, no more GM's for me.
1991 Sunbird - repairs, water pump (in 6 months), head gasket and alternator. Owned brand new.
1991 Berreta GTZ V6 - 3 alternators, 2 motors from cracked blocks, first one at 90,000kms, sensors bought used. No warranty.
1999 Grand Am GT, best one yet... wheel bearing going when lease was up.
I wondered why I am done with GM. They are great to drive when working, but that is it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
