2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT1 SC/T Ram Air 3.4 V6 from North America
Needed new front brake pads at 25,000 miles.
With all bias toward GM aside, I still love this car. It's a fully loaded GT1 coupe with the SC/T appearance package painted in bright red. I always get looks wherever I take this car.
Performance and handling are on par for a car labeled 'GT'. Engine gets it up to speed quickly, and the four wheel disc breaks get it to stop just a quick.
Even though it needs new pads every 25,000 miles and new rotors every 50,000 miles, its tolerable considering the pads are $20 and the rotors are $60/pair.
Anyone that complains about the build quality must have been expecting to get $48,000 BMW quality in a $23,000 GM car. Face it guys, for the price of these cars the build quality is pretty damn good.
Had my '97 GASE for 170,000 miles and I'm hoping to take this one to that and beyond.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
