I have a 2001 grand am se, I was driving and my ABS, traction off light and service vehicle soon light came on. the clip that holds the sensor to the wheel bearing broke so I zip tied it back on and now the lights don't turn on. that's the only problem I've had with my GA.

I drive a Pontiac Grand Am SE1 and I have had no problems with it at all. The service light, ABS, and traction control light do cme on every once in a while, but the never interfere from point A to point B. I love the car and will probably trade it in for a newer pontiac in four years. This car is luxurious and outstanding for having 96000 miles on it. I Love it!

I absolutely love my 2001 SE-1 4 cylinder and have yet to have one single problem with it. It uses not one drop of oil, has never had a brake job, and has awesome acceleration for a 4 cylinder. I traded a V-8 Mustang in on this car and I honestly gave up very little in the way of performance while getting exactly TWICE the gas mileage (30 versus 15).
The brakes applying by themselves does baffle me. My Grand Am will smoke the tires for 15 or 20 feet even with the traction control on. Of course, that could mean the traction control is not working. I can't tell any difference with it on or off. It's never bothered me one way or the other, as the overall performance has been so good.

My 2001 Grand Am is by far the best car I have ever owned. It has never had one problem. I've owned American cars, Japanese cars, one Gernman car, Muscle cars, luxury cars and compacts. Not one of them has come close to the reliability and quality of this Grand Am. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat if Pontiac still made them. As it is, I'll most likely step down to the G-5 Pursuit, as I hate the ugly G-6.
