I am having a lot of problems with my 1999 Grand Am SE. Fuel injectors needing to be replaced and the service engine light comes on. Sounds like a tractor when it runs... Any ideas???

I agree totally with the 'speed clips', they do no such thing, they only slow you down, and then when you put it back in you spend another 15 minutes figuring out how to re-aim and adjust them.. I hate being in front of Grand Am's, the headlights are always out of adjustment and blind you as you drive.

I am buying a 1999 Grand Am SE today with only 122,000 miles on it. It looks like a decent car that should last over 5 years.

I no longer own my 2001 Grand Am, but it was sold at 85,000 miles and had never had a single problem. I had replaced the front brake pads at 70,000 miles, but the rear pads were still the factory originals at 85,000 miles. The car drove like a dream, rode very well and looked brand new inside and out at 85,000 miles.
I was also a member of a Grand Am club and some of the guys in the club had Grand Ams with well over 200,000 miles on them.
The key is taking care of scheduled maintenance, and NEVER, EVER allow the engine to run hot...EVER. It will never be reliable if it is allowed to overheat. Also, NEVER SLAM THE DOORS. I read a ton of comments about broken window clips on the Grand Am. I simply encouraged my riders not to slam the doors, and I never had a single problem with the windows. These cars are stylish, fast (even the 2.4), reliable and an incredible bargain on the used car market.
