Nov. 21 2010.
I have a 1999 Grand Am SE 2.4L with 176,000 miles. I have replaced 1 coil spring, I have had numerous sets of brakes, and tires. I change oil regularly. Needless to say, at age 64, this is one of the best cars I've ever owned.

Well as far as the heater not working on 1 and 2, the heater resistor is bad. They cost about 20 dollars at Autozone or Advance.
As far as the trunk popping open, disconnect the switch on the door.

Just because the manufacturer's and dealers CLAIM that their vehicles will provide long TROUBLE-FREE life and long mileage, we must be realistic. They are like politicians; when their mouths move, they are not telling the truth!

The 4 way hazard warning switch controls both the turn signal and 4 way flasher. You can replace it for about $40 from the dealer. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Using a small flat screwdriver, gently pry around the ignition key surround and pop it off. Stick your thumb into the cigar socket and pull the lower corner of the plastic face plate towards you. It will then snap off all around as you pull it off. Pull the emergency brake on, turn the key on and put the gearshift in 2 or 1, so as to get the trim out to where you can work on it. Just take the wire connector off the hazard switch, re & re the switch, and re-assemble. Make sure you know the code to re-set the theftlock on your radio!! I have replaced mine 4 times in 11 years.

I own a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT, and the only problem I had with it was to replace the intake head gasket, and it ran me about $500 to fix it, and a fuel pump for 150$. Those were the only problems I had with the car, and it has 167,000 miles on it, and other than that, it runs good.
I have read a couple of comments that a lot of you hear a noise in the front. I tested it out to see if I could hear any noise, and nothing was wrong, no noise.
