Okay, you people are seriously missing out on the facts? I work at a Chevy dealership and even though there is a Pontiac dealership next door, we see more Grand Am's, SE, GT's etc... then we see Chevy Mailbu's. The car is the biggest piece of junk on the road! And if you have not had any problems with it, just wait or actually drive it once in a while. And you don't actually think that the ram air gives the engine more power? Because it doesn't, seems to me like you fell for the advertising, not functionability.

I have a 99 Grand Am GT and love it. It's got about 42000 miles on it, and I haven't had a problem with it yet. It rides and runs like a dream, gotta love it!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets the idea from other drivers that their high beams are on. I've had truckers practically try to run me off the road because of it, or put THEIR high beams on me... then I flash my high beams a few times once I pass them. I have noticed though, that my lights reflect right into the rear view mirror of most drivers in front of me, and that when I do flick my high beams on, the beam is way up into the trees.
I've purposely driven in front of other Grand Ams at night, and have noticed that some seem to have high beams on and others don't. I've heard that if you take it to a Pontiac dealer's mechanic, they have a machine that aligns your headlights for like $20. approximately. That may help.

Wow, people are pretty dumb... take care of the car. If you don't take care of it then don't cry and complain about problems you have.

How many miles are on your car? I've taken EXTREMELY good care of my car. It's still perfect on the inside and out. However, my car has not been so kind to me. I've spend THOUSANDS of dollars in repairs on it. I only wish I was exaggerating and I only wish I would have gotten rid of it long ago. I didn't think anything else could possibly go wrong with it, but every month, some new problem arises. I love everything else about the car and wish I had better things to say about how reliable it is. Just a little advice... once things start to go bad, watch out, because it'll keep getting worse. (There are only 62,000 miles on my car and has been in the shop constantly). The people in the dealership know me and hide when they see me come in with another new problem. I never had these problems with my Grand Am SE.

I love my 2001 Grand Am GT... My only problem is with only 62000 miles, and getting an antifreeze leak fixed, my engine is now misfiring and my car out of commission. Any suggestions with repair?

2000, I had some bad rotors and a bad brake job that lead to new calipers got some minor leaks in the CV joints just before warranty was up. I've flushed the coolant cleaned the throttle body and kept either Valvoline Castrol or mobile 1 full synthetic. I just dropped in some Bosch platinum +4 plugs and a good set of wires. Runs nice for 98,000 miles. I just need a front end alingment new tires and wheels. darn michigan potholes.

Car: Grand Am SE.
I love my car, but have had several brake jobs since purchasing it 3 years ago. Brake pads have been replaced three times, rotors resurfaced more than once then finally replaced recently. The calipers make a terrible noise, but the company wouldn't replace as new calipers were causing the same concerns. I am under the impression that the calipers may be contributing to my continual brake repair. I will need to research this however.
I have had a problem with other drivers thinking my high beams are on when they aren't, I thought it was just me, glad to know I'm not alone. I find if I continually drive with high beams and make sure to dim when other traffic is approaching, there realize I have actually dimmed my lights and don't flash their brights.
