There are always a few (hopefully rare) lemons in any make of car. My 2001 Grand Am has performed flawlessly and I've encountered absolutely zero problems. My biggest regret is that the G-6 is a boring and plain cookie-cutter car with no character. I personally wish Pontiac had kept the Grand Am, body cladding and all.

My 2001 Pontiac Grand Am is by far the best car I've ever owned. I have never had any trouble with it at all, and the ride and performance are great. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat if Pontiac still made them. I don't like the G-6.

Mine has 134,000 on it and I constantly feel like it's going to break down on me. 50,000 miles; I guess you haven't had to replace the lower intake manifold or the wheel hubs yet; oh and wait till the bolts break in the rack and pinion (that's always fun) and it's not a question of if it's going to happen, but when.
I doubt Toyota or Honda salesmen have to bash american cars to get business, since previous GM owners go running to them!

I own a 2001 Grand Am GT. It's got 181,000km on it, and nothing but problems. Once the security light comes on, the car doesn't start. I had car towed to dealer, and all they did was charge the battery and it cost $200.00 for tow and $240.00 for mechanic, and I was told to replace the battery, so I did. The car still doesn't start all the time, I never know when it will start.
I have found out it's a problem with the passlock system, and found out if you turn the key to the on position and wait ten minutes, it should start, this seems to work.
I also have a loud noise coming from the front end like a humming sound, don't know what it is, and have a loud noise when opening the window. I talked to the dealer about the not starting problem, and they really have no idea why it does this.
Lemon car I'd say. Costs nothing but money. Too many other problems to list.
