When I first broke it in and I would go over 60 miles per hour the driver-side door sounded like it wasn't sealer properly and I could hear the wind outside. The faster I went, the louder the noise.
With in the first 9 months the tailpipes rusted and had to be completely replaced.
With in the first 6 months the stock Monsoon 6X9s started to sound very bad, and also had to be completely replaced.
The paint doesn't seem to hold up very well- there are a lot of small chips on the hood from rocks.
All of there problems were fixed free of charge except for the paint, yet the tail piped and speakers both are doing the same thing as before again and I hate to have to keep getting the same problem fixed- it's inconvenient.
The outside of the car is very sporty and fun in my opinion, which is what originally drew me to it.
The interior is very roomy and all of the controls for the stereo and heating/cooling are angled toward the driver.
The trunk is HUGE.
When I was side swiped about 2 months ago by a 1997 Honda Accord my car was mildly damaged, while the Accord had a huge dent on the front fender and bent the front Axel and damaged the wheel.
The car's performance is amazing. This alone makes up for every problem I've ever had with the car. It's sporty and small, but at the same time it's comfortable to drive. It feels a lot quicker when you're actually in it, and you can feel the torque (power you feel off the line) like you wouldn't believe.
The wheels (I have the 16" chrome) are great and they really stand out.
I think the Grand Am GT is highly under-estimated. If I had the choice to buy another car, I wouldn't. Maybe it's the fact that it's my first car, I don't know. I am proud to tell everyone I drive a Pontiac Grand Am.
