We bought our 2012 Buick Enclave in Jan of 2013 through Wanyesburg Carriage co. We are from NJ and found this vehicle online. Our salesman was great. He was honest and understood that we were far away and accomodated us very well with pictures, info, etc. He also understood that we needed time to make arangements to pick up our vehicle. He gave us a great deal and we love our car. Our experience was great from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this dealership.

I drive my cousins 2003 Pontiac grand am gt all the time that it's basically my car. there so many problems. the big ones are the coolant system problems, leaks coolant and overheats, always filling coolant. needs a new radiator. seals around windshield and back windshield are coming up, radio doesn't light up anymore, cheap materials overall. has good power and acceleration though, I'm not afraid to put it to the floor and pass someone, electrical issues with security system though, keyless entry doesn't work. headlights very foggy. only but if it has less than 120k

not best car

This car is a good first car, but not much more than that. I purchased it from my older brother, who owned it for about 2 years. Before him, it was owned by a family friend and before that a car rental service, so my car has seen its fair share of abuse. When my brother bought the car, it had a leak in the cooling system to where it had to be filled every week or so. It was too expensive to fix, so I've been living with it. The driver side windows have been broken twice. The oil switch broke, which almost totaled the car. The starter went out. The washer pump is broken. The horn is broken. The dashboard is warping up. The keyless entry system is broke

Great second car

Bought this car used back in 2008 with around 55k miles on it... just hit 140k and am looking to replace it, but not for anything specific, I'm just anticipating a problem since I've never had one yet. Even winding up nose first in a snow bank on the side of the highway didn't stop it. Aside from minor wear and tear work, we've never had to replace anything major, even with it being our only car for 4+ years, surviving all those New England winters. Excellent car, excellent style, and roomy inside even with its smaller exterior.

Not a bad car considering, but not great.

I bought my Grand AM SE 2.2L brand new in November of 2002. I still have the car just over ten years now. Its a sporty car with a particularly powerful four cylinder engine. That being said, it is a four cylinder, and while the car is absolutely fantastic for highway driving, the car is simply too heavy for hills and cold weather. Even when the car was new it did not like climbing hills, and in the cold the engine loses significant horsepower. However, the car is amazing on gas if properly maintained and I have driven from southern Massachusetts to Bangor, Maine (Approximately 300 miles) before refueling.

Fun to drive, good on long trips!

Owned mine until 2007 when it was vandalized and totaled by my insurance company (ugh.). Very reliable and fun car for a decent price. Everyone constantly complains about the lack of power from the "Ram Air 3400 V6." The title offers more than the engine itself. 8+ seconds to 60 which can be an issue passing sometimes, however it has a ton of torque. Other than that it's a fun car with decent fuel economy. I've taken to the mountains of NC and it was perfect for what we needed.

I've had two grand ams. One was an 03 grand am gt coupe, and the other was an 01 se sedan. Both have well over 200,000 miles and were excellent cars! Had a good amount of power with the 3.4Ltr 6cyl. Gas mileage was amazing! I live in Wyoming and they both got around in the snow VERY well. Never had any trouble with either one, I have since upgraded to an SUV, but I do miss those cars. I would highly recommend, they are cheap to buy, cheap to fill, and cheap to maintain.

Awesome car.

I love my car, but I've had problems with the PassKey system - still looking for a way to disable that completely. Also, I'm not a fan of the Monsoon sound system. In spite of all that, my car is great. It's very quick and plenty fast - although the 150mph speedometer is tempting. It's a great looking car; I've received lots of complements. All in all, it's a great car for the money.

i bought this pontiac grand am with 25,000 miles on it in 2004.was a good car until 2010. i started having electrical shorts-cruise control,horn,fog light window switch,dome light. at 90,000 miles the intake manifold gasket went out,while the mechanic was replacing the gasket he also discovered a censor that was not properly clipped down anywhere.the censor wiring was about shredded and in a place not visible unless the intake manifolds and other various parts are off the engine. had the brakes redone multiple times,in heavy rain the brakes make a grinding noise and seem as though the barely function at all when wet.I HATE THIS CAR...DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE!!!

We were shopping for a Honda Accord when we stopped by the GM dealer, we drove away in a brand new Gt Grand Am with all the bells and whistles for $7000 less than a half loaded 4 cyl Accord. I thought i would pay in the end in repairs but this car has been very reliable, we have just over 170k on it now and have never had any major problems, and the car is stupidly cheap to maintain (no timing belt service to worry about)We have had the most trouble with the power windows, maybe it's the cold Canadian winters that's hard on the window clips (we replaced ours twice now). The car performs well, gets great fuel economy, and we still get complements on the looks! Overall a good solid car for the price.

ONE owner. I bought new 10/2002 happy to have a new car. Headliner fell down 5X in the first 6 mos, then brake pads (every 4 mos & a few calipers) Owner of 5 cars in my life, ONLY 1 has done this, hmm?? Driver, doubt it. Then 2007 big ticket repairs, Dex-Cool ruined hoses, gaskets, manifolds THEN I find out about the Class Action Lawsuit too late to file my repairs. Also replaced many other parts. Do I go on? Not only did I pay of $24K new I have about $8K in repairs. Sell? find out about GM's extreme depreciation, I could not get this nightmare off my hands! 2010 with a 155K mi & needs 3K more in repairs to run, I can't give this car away at this point! Buy a GM, NEVER AGAIN!

Love my car, but it has a few quirks.

Got it used in 2007 and it has been going strong. I love the smooth sporty ride and the tight handling. I haven't had any major problems with it, however, certain things have started to go and with the Grand Am's, it's the little things that kill you. A few months after I bought it my stereo light dimmed and it's hard to see. The seal on my passenger's side door is loose so when it rains heavy my entire passenger's side floor is soaked. My air only works on 3 and above. Now my driver's side window is expendable and refuses to work sometimes. If you live in the Midwest please make sure you have another vehicle for winter. This gets hopelessly stuck in everything 3 inches and above. Bummer!

I own a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am SE V6 and i am so glad i bought this car. It has been very good for me it's quick really quick and with the stuff i do to it i'm surprised it hasn't broke in two. It hasn't had any problems except last week the fuel pump went out which for your information is really common for Pontiac Grand Am's Chevy Malibu's of 99-03 and Olds-mobile Alero's it's just a chronic problem just like nissan's and brake failure anyway my dads slammed the car into a curb going 40 in ice and nothing happened to it didn't even get out of alignment tell me one car that does that i could keep going on but i don't have enough space but for quality and performance this is the best car.

I purchased my 03 Grand Am new as a left over in Feb. 04. I paid about $7000 less than sticker and it s the best car bargain I ever got. Since I've had I put 53000 NYC miles on it and it's only needed minor normal wear repairs that one would expect for a 03 model. Water pump was the most serious. I do go thru brakes more than I think i should but other than that this car has been good to me and I love it!

I've had this car since it was brand new and it's been nothing but a nightmare to own. I'm now seeing many of the problems I've had from other reviewers, including turn signal clicking when not in use,paint peeling, seals. Two weeks after purchase, the a/c went - needed air compressor and it's been downhill ever since. I only have 31,000 but have had the brake pedal assembly replaced due to car picking up speed, even going up hill, needed 2 batteries replaced in less than 3 mos., sunroof leaked, had ignition cylinder replaced 3 times because car wouldn't start; 3 days after most recent replacement, security light has been coming on while driving and dealership says can't disconnect. Run!

I find this to be a very solid, great handling and fun to drive car. There is more then the rated horsepower available, especially considering the cars 3800 lbs. and it runs great!! I would advise i bought this NOT looking for a maintenance free car - it waas cherry but i replaced the coolant with NON DEX_COOL and a lower-tem thermostat - its a GM thing you need to correct but the engine will last foever - i'm a mechanic and trust me it will save you TONS of trouble. I've seen GM's like this take some serious abuse and keep on going!!!

Looks good fun to drive; Many problems 1) pass lock 2) brakes 3)water pump 4) fuel pump If GM would make cars that did not continually FAIL. They could make money on selling cars. Brakes - were bad from fac. they didn't even clean the disks ( still greasy) ; Pass lock may have worked it they lubricated the cylinder: Water pump - they put this on the timing chain- Very bad design! Fuel pump - in the tank Very bad design. I think GM could design a good car they just chose not to!

Had this car for 6 years and have nothing but problems with this car. Initially, the car was fun to drive and fulfilled its purpose. After about a year and a half, everything started going south. This piece of crap has front rotor, rear drum brakes. As such, the brakes wear down pretty quick. Have replaced brakes/pads/rotors 5 times so far. Have also replaced entire ignition system, fuel tank, fuel pump, and various other things. Bought car new for $14k and, so farm have spent about $7- $8k in repairs over the life of ownership. DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT BUYING THIS CAR.

I bought my car brand spanking new with only 2 miles on it. I've had a few issues with it with a bad fuel pump the catalytic converter went out which was replaced under warranty. I've also had to have the battery replaced. Other than that i've had no other problems with my car I usually change the oil at regular intervals and recently had a coolant flush. It rides great.

This is why Pontiac has died.

I'm the original owner of my Grand Am GT. Bought it, and am still paying for it since October 2003. Was a great ride and reliable for the better of 4 years. Now six years out, the car is falling apart. Pads and rotors seem to be replaced often.Surprising since I don't race the car, and it is used as a daily commuter with 114,000 miles on it. Replaced ignition switch, emergency brake (broke after replacement by dealer, they had never seen that before), head gasket, and now putting off drivetrain and suspension repair. Tell myself everyday, "Why did I ever buy this car?" GM vehicles seem to have become the money pit of car ownership in my experience. I say buy foreign for better quality!

I bought my 2003 grand am gt1 2 years ago. it had one previous owner. I have put so much money into this car. I take excellent care of my car, but everytime i turn around something else is wrong with it. I've had to replace the electrical box in the car. fuel pump and filters, batteries, thermostat, and now something else is wrong with it.. ABS, no trac, service vehicle soon lights are all on. For some reason I'm thinking it has something to do with the famous engine block. i've spent close to 4 grand on it in less than 2 years. yikes.

I have had a great experience with this car. I was especially happy when I moved from to a state where it snows and my car handled incredibly well in the snow. I lived on a very steep hill and my neighbors could not get up the hill in the snow but my Pontiac went right up the hill. This car looks nice,I like how it looks sporty. Handles well,gets good gas mileage. I always thought it was pretty roomy until a car seat would not really fit well in the back seat. Stroller also takes up the entire trunk. I have only had to repair the fuel pump and that was at 125,000 miles. All other work on the car has been just routine maintenance. My only complaint would be that it's little noisy inside

I've had the GAGT over 6 yrs/70K miles. Seen many of the typical problems-replace front brakes every 15k, passlock issues, random clicking, leaking intake manifold gasket, etc. When I complained about the front brake servicing to Pontiac corporate, they were minimally helpful. Researching a bit, I found numerous consumer complaints, and several Tech Service Bulletins issues by Pontiac regarding the brakes. One additional item:(might vary by state) in MA, the GAGT is very expensive to insure-same as a BMW, due to repair cost. Many of the negative aspects of the car seem to be related to a corporate philosophy from GM, which with the recent bailout requests seem to run deeper than just the GAGT

Bought brand new in 2003, and am aiming for 100,000 miles. Car is at 70,000 now, and only issue so far is the engine would get hot, but never overheat (cheap intake gasket in this car - needed replaced). I've always had maintenance done on time, cleaned it often, and simply took greater care of it than others found reasonable. It still keeps up with my lead foot, is still running and looking like new after three fairly serious accidents, drove smoothly between California and Massachusetts four times, and its fun-to-drive rating becomes "10" with the right custom suspension and engine upgrades. The electrical, engine, and mechanics, overall, have yet to fail me.

I bought this car used, with 62,000 miles on it, after i hit the 63,000 mile mark i started having this goofy electrical problem where i would start the car and the radio, Dash...etc...wouldn't turn on. I am able to cope with it, usually it all kicks on about 1 minute after starting. 2,000 miles later the fuel pump went out. I love the car, but the problems are starting to irritate me. The car handle's very nicely, accelerates very quickly and is a comfortable, sharp looking ride.

My parents bought me this car for my sixteenth birthday for $11,000. The previous owners kept it immaculate and changed its oil every three-thousand miles. I have continued this care and the car has remained in mint condition. This car is very good- looking and has excellent performance for the cheap price. The many luxuries such as the sunroof and chrome rims are very nice.

Bought this car with 96,000 Km. Car is reliable and handles great, looks great also. The only main problem I've had with this car is the front end but with our roads its to be expected.

I've had this 2003 grand am for 1 1/2 years now and have had nothing but problems with it. The turn signal/4-way clicks more than occasionally. Especially when it is cold outside. I've had to replace both front hubs, a cv joint, the fuel pump, an ignition control module, and on 3 separate occasions, have had 3 rocker arms come loose on the rear head (by loose I mean they were lying on top of the head when I opened the valve cover). I've replaced the brakes and rotors twice since I bought the car and have to do them again soon due to warped rotors. I do not intend to buy another grand am. Ever. And I do not recommend anyone else buying one. Unless they like to work on vehicles a lot.

Bought this car 6/2005, and have 52,000 miles currently. Have the rarer 5-speed, 4 cylinder. Very good on gas; get 31 mpg on highway. Seats are comfortable for long trips too. Engine is peppy and spirited with the 5-speed, which is more in keeping with Pontiac's history. The engine, however, is a little growly (quieter on my Escape). Car is very reliable and have no leaks or major issues. My car has had two issues other owners have complained about: Turn signal stalk needed replacing because it would click after turn, and seams on bottom of all doors needed to be sealed and painted because of rust. Interior build quality not as good as newer GM vehicles. Overall, a good car for less money.

Heads up about the 3.4's, they have a known problem with the head gasket. Mine was faulty, leaked antifreeze into engine, brokedown oil and screwed my engine. $4000 (no warranty)later I have a new engine and no confidence in the rest of the car. Also, I had to have the electronic brake control module changed ($2000, but under warranty still). I desperately want to like Pontiacs but my faith is weakening in them.

I bought this car with 27,000 miles on it one year old. It started out as a smooth ride with a lot of power. After one year I had to completely replace the brakes. After hiting the 70,000 mile mark, I've had to replace the alternator (very expensive for this car) and the fuel pump (also pricey). The car is constantly having some sort of electrical problem and sometimes it just doesn't want to start and has to have the computer reset. It has left me stranded too many times. I can't wait to trade it in!!! I should've listened to the guy who stopped me at a gas station and warned me that these cars fall apart after 60,000 miles

Fun little car

I have had it going on 4 years now. Only thing replaced has been the battery. No problems except with some clunk noise in the front suspension. Either has gone away or don't notice it anymore.

The car captured me right away. The car handles like the pros. I can corner with absolute confidence regardless of my speed. Acceleration is not bad, but you will suck the gas back if you enjoy using the gas pedal. Sound system is quite good. I found the bass to be somewhat lacking, but a small subwoofer solved that. The doors are awfully wide when trying to park. Would love to have vertical door kit installed for that. Front wheel bearing have gone, blinker relay went crazy, had a bit too much shavings in the tranny when I changed filter and oil, doors don't seal well in cross winds, factory rims peeling(so much for chrome). Other than that, has been fine.

Bad Decision

After purchasing 5 other gm vehicles, i purchased this car used and thought that i was getting a quality product. Now 2 years 4 months later i sit having to trade the car with a bad engine. My car is not overdriven in 4 years it has 59,000 miles on it. The dealership i took it to in Escondido states that its just a valve failure and cannot tell me what caused it or why. While i was sitting in a dealership looking at another vehicle another 02 Pontiac owner came in and said that her vehicle was falling apart. Needless to say after 6500 in repair (much more than i can get on trade) i will not be going with another Pontiac ever.

I bought this car hoping to have something that would last. I was wrong, this car eats brakes. I do not drive hard, the car is all highway miles.The turn signal clicks all the time, the car is airy and the car has had a leak since I bought it and the dealership could not find what was wrong. I'm considering a G6 but I'm not sure if I should give GM another chance.

The Car is very nice looking,and fun to drive, however we had problems right off with the A/C- dealership refused to fix it, so car was not truly "certified used" a bit upsetting, brakes have been fine so far, the car is smaller inside then it first looks, we have a hard time fitting the rear facing child seat, and latch system not recommeded for use in the middle of the back seat. Impressive trunk space- Overall, nice economy sedan- but don't think I will buy pontiac again.

This has got to be the poorest car investment I have ever made. My Grand Am 4 dr. SE as soon as I passed the 60,000 km Warranty the car has been biodegrading on the road. Paint has literally been flying off the bumpers and the doors as i drive At 70,000 Km my air conditioning quit and some type of relay switch in the blinker has gone when I turn the clicking noise of the blinker keeps going for 45-60 seconds after the turn is completed. The fog lamps in the front tend to come loose and point in strange directions I have used Duct tape to hold them in place When called the dealer and told them of my concerns she said Oh they are prone to those problems but bring it in Pay for an Inspection

I love my car!!! I bought it with 21K miles still under warranty. Regular oil changes, tire rotations, etc. this car runs fine. I changed the battery and had work done under warranty just after purchasing, since then, no problems!! I work at a high end car retailer and wouldn't even think of buying from my job. Very reliable car, good engine,love the leather interior, moonroof and "moonsoon" stereo. I get tons of compliments about the chrome wheels too! Only wish it had more grip in the snow and ice, you have to drive carefully in the winter weather. Just a tad bit more HP would make this car better, but it's awesome!!

I have had my G.A. for 2.5 years and have had many problems. I have had them replace the radio 2 times for skipping, still skips. The suspension went out in the front a couple of months ago, and it is starting to rattle around AGAIN! When I hit a bump or RR tracks...it jumps around. I have to take it in again because my power steering fluid is leaking and the wheel is making a grinding noise. I have taken it back 3 times for GM to fix the back door, it rattles. GM had to replace the windshield molding bacuse it came off! I took it in FIVE x's because the seat belt light wouldnt turn off (even when buckled). They finally found a short under the seat! I have 35k and looking to trade it in!!

The best thing about this car is the Torque. there aren't a lot of cars that will beat the Grand Am from a red light. My only complaint with the Grand Am is the limited room in the rear.

I have been in cars that ride a little smoother, but I would have never known mine rode hard if I had not test drove another car. I average about 22 MPG in the city and it could be better, but I am happy because the V6 really feels powerful compared to the 4 cyl.

After owning a '97 GASE coupe for 3 years I was thrilled to get my '03 GAGT SC/T coupe in December as a Christmas present to myself. I love the exterior design especially with the SC/T package. Mine is one of the few bright red SC/T coupes and it always gets attention whenever I take it out. Since this is my daily driver (I have a 100 mile/day commute to work) interior comfort was a must, and my GAGT doesn't disappoint. So far with 41k miles (bought it with 17.5K) the only thing to go wrong was the blower motor resistor, a typical problem for the 99+ GAs. Would definitely recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a sporty car on a budget.

I bought the 2003 Grand Am GT new with the SC/T package (my fav). For some reason I just had to have this car why I dont know. I actually have had a lot of little stupid problems I just dont have time to go to the dealership with. As for holding up I think it has done good I have about 55,000 miles on it. My windows are off track and pontiac said they fixed when they didnt they have done this about 4 times and I just dont feel like going car less for a day again. My gas gauge is off, and alot of other stupid things. I cant believe the depriciation on it. I have lost a lot of money with this car and I will not get another american car again. Other then that if I could get rid of it I would.

The quality of this car is highly unacceptable to me. Within the first 44,000 miles, this car has gone through 3 sets of rotors and three sets of brakes. GM considers rotors a "wear item." If you have not replaced your front rotors and your mileage is above 20,000 miles, prepare to replace them soon. This car performs great, is comfortable, and is very fun to drive. If GM could produce quality rotors, this would be the perfect car.

I have owned my Grand Am for over two years and have had no mechanical issues until now (car has 34,750 miles on it).The problem is the intact manifold is poorly constructed. The bolts that hold the system together work loose over time, causing the intake manifold gasket to come apart and engine coolant to leak out. This is a known problem with GM 3.1 and 3.4 liter engines, yet GM refuses to design a new intact system to correct this issue. It is a somewhat expensive repair ($700 to $800). Fortunately, mine was covered under warranty. So owners beware!!! If you see or smell engine coolant, you have an idea of what your repair most likely will be. Aside from this problem, car is great!

I have had my G.A. for almost a year. Not too crazy about it. Every time a hit a bump or tracks, I think it is going to fall apart (rough ride). The seals around the windshield, and the back window are peeling off. I have had my radio replaced twice, for excessive skipping. It still skips. There is a leak somewhere on the driver side, so, I am forever thinking the door is not closed all of the way. The front seat is really cramped when there's a rear facing car seat behind it. I don't recommend the G.A. as a family car. I do, however, like all of the cup holders and the storage space. I was also looking into buying the Taurus. The Taurus was really generic, compared to the G.A.

This was a "GM certified" car, with @ 27,000 miles on it. The "change oil" light was on, 1 headlight had condensation in it, the tires all had different pressure, and the intermittent wipers didn't work - so much for "certified". This was all fixed with a smile by the dealer. At 30,300 miles, the lower intake manifold gasket and water pump were leaking. Again - all fixed with a smile. At 32,900 miles, the lower intake manifold gasket was again replaced, and due to a "hot start" problem diagnosed as low fuel pressure the fuel pump was replaced. Again - all fixed with a smile. Overall. It drives well, smooth relatively quiet and comfy, and good stereo. Extended warranty a must!

This is a great running AMERICAN car. As usual, most people overlook cars like this due to the perception that Foreign made is "better made". I feel this car is going to be very dependable, and for the time I have had the car, its fun to drive, ok on gas, easy to park. Looks good even sitting still--far better looking that the current "rice" look seen far to ofen: civics , corollas, etc., with spoilers over a foot tall on the trunks of their rusted 4-bangers with a cannon size exhaust outlet and enough racing stickers to almost prevent the drivers seeing out of the windows...

Overall, the 2004 Grand Am is a good car. I typically drive about 36,000 miles per year, and it has been sufficient for me so far. I like the Monsoon sound system, along with the MP3 capability. However, the overall stlying of the car hasn't changed much in several years, and some of the structural design seems somewhat cheap. I take very good care of automobiles, but this one, after only about 4 months is already showing some wear and tear. I'm not knocking the Grand Am....like I said, it has been a pretty good vehicle for me so far.

The car handled great, and the responsiveness was great. I was not very satisfied with the quality though. Had a leak from day one that the dealer could not find, finally turned out to be sun roof drains. The brakes wore out quickly under normal conditions, as did the struts and related parts. At trade in time, I got less than half the cost of the car, (my fault) but feel the car should have held it's value a little better.

This is only the second American car I've ever owned. Turned in my Nissan Altima at the end of a lease and decided to buy a car. I was able to find a great deal on this car which used to be a rental car. It has a lot of power and looks great. I love the headlights that go on automatically and the fog lights look great. It is very responsive and has a lot of kick. I love this car, it's got so much more power than my 4 cyl Altima. I've had no issues with the car. I strongly recommend it for its reliability, it's great looks and it's power.

My experience with Pontiac's Grand Am has been mixed. While the car is sleek and it has the engine capacity, the 3.4 liter is far too anemic for the GT's perfoemance image. Acceleration from a standing start is OK, but it quickly runs out of breath. This engine is, however, very smooth and reliable. Ride quality is adequate as is handling. In general, a sporty car at a low price. With the generous rebates the car cost less than $16,000.00 new.

This is my first GM vehicle. The car drives and runs pretty good. Wind noise is pronounced when driving on a windy day. Gas mileage could be better. The V6 is quick and has lot's of torque. I am pretty satisfied with my purchase.

There is a noise that comes from the motor. I took it to the dealership and I was told That is to be expexted that. the factory was not going to fix the problem. They put a new belt on it to see it that helped but the noise is still there.

GrandAM is a nightmare to drive on wet and uneven road surfaces. The vehicle has a tendency to push on left turns and sometimes delivers an abrupt swerve when turning to the left on dry roads. This condition almost caused an accident on the PA Turnpike. GM dealer's repsonse was the typical "couldn't duplicate condition" but refuses to remove the McPherson struts for thorough examination. What ever happened to the old reliable GM Corporation? As a diehard GM fan I am now looking to imports as replacement. Never thought I would see this day!

Noticeable performance increase over my '96 GAGT (which had a 3.1). Holds a straight line considerably better at cruising speed with crosswind. Better braking due to all around disk brakes. Hugs corners with less leaning than my '96. Monsoon sound definately better than my '96.

Ok, I understand the reason for he the governers on the car, They govern Redlining, Top speed, slip shifting on an automatic. No problem, But why does the governer turn off the engine at 106 mph? I normally don't travel at those speeds, but when I took it to the track, It wouldn't perform past 106 mph. Someone owes me money or an explanation, I lost to a 4cyl stick Grand Am, I beat him off the line and in the 1/4 mile but when we went on the oval track I lost. He was able to reach 120mph now how is that fair? Rear Seats, ok now why can't I gain access to my trunk from within the car? The old Grand Am's were able to.

I love this car. not too big not too small. I traded in a 2003 Corolla for this grand am. The best part is the smooth pickup with enough power to move out quick if necessary. It is a little too noisy . seems I have to turn the radio up there is so much background noise in the car. and the radio dosn't seem to have good acoustics. Gas milage is 25-28. am happy with this car. I owned a cavelier for 10 years, but enjoy the Pontiac much more . it is a 4cyl twin cam.

I've had my 2003 Grand Am GT for about eight months. It handles great and is a really smooth ride. With my commute of 80miles four days a week, I've really been giving my car a workout. The V6 engine results in fast pickup (good for highway lane merges), and has somewhat of a sporty roar when you accelerate. Overall, I'm thrilled with my car.

I love to drive this car! Definitely the best handling in its class! I was a little hesitant to buy a car with an automatic transmission but I quickly found the shifts to be very quick and firm. The engine produces enough power to make acceleration exciting and an exhaust note that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. The exterior styling is quite nice (I'm always afraid someone's going to steal my rims they're so nice) and the interior isn't bad either. The seats are great, they're comfortable and supportive during spirited cornering. I like this car so much I find I never want to stop driving.

I rented a Grand Am for a week. Followed by a Corolla and a Taurus. Pontiac has get-up-and-go. This car has more punch and better handling than an comparably priced Accord. However, I can't compare the reliably, nor would anyone be surprised if I did. Unlike their counterparts at Ford, GM remains a solid "B" student. They build solid cars at reasonable prices. Now if we can just discuss the over- stylized interiors. (It's a car, not the bridge to the Enterprise NCC1701)

The Pontiac Grand AM GT that I purchased has been running great since day one. The smooth and powerfull 3.4 liter V6 engine with Ram Air feature makes the car one of the fastest cars in its comparison group. The interior is clean and modern with features like a monsoon stereo system and leather apolstery. I firmly believe in supporting America, so by buying an American made car I believe I have accomplished this. I recomend this vehicle to every American!

This car is a great "family" vehicle that doesn't look it! My wife and I are very happy with it. There is plenty of room in it for a car seat and all the items that go along with a baby. Great handling, acceleration, and feel. There is one downside to the vehicle. A car this sporty should have a 5 or 6 speed manual tranny as an option on the V6 motor.

I've been driving a Grand Am GT sedan for six months now and I am very impressed. It's a great car, perfect for everyday needs with some fun on the side. The 3400 SFI is a great engine and very reliable. The pricing of Grand Ams seems to be creeping upwards, but then, it is worth it in my opinion rather than to be driving an Accord with 100 million other people.

Overall a very fun car to drive, I have a few problems with the suspension "popping" when turning or going over bumps. Uppon taking it to the dealership I was informed that it was just body "creaks", and nothing could be done to repair problem. It was sad to be told that I spent $22,000 on a car that creaks. Engine continually revs when cold, even for 20 min or more untill it reaches 200 degrees, seariously cuts mpg.

This car is a nice ride for the front and back passengers. Nice style in and out. The V6 is good, but better yet with a little bit of tinkering with the intakes and exhaust. The only gripe most Grand AM GT owners have is the fact that GM decided to put a 4T45 transmission. The GT simply needs more. A manual would be nice too.

I got the "Moonsoon" sound system which I highly reccomend,the best stock sound system I have ever heard. The 6 cylinder isvery quick,and with the "Ram Air" I got plus I put a K&N perfomance air filter in,it has about 200 horse power,and I have timed my car zero-60 in about 7.5 seconds! Good horse power for a V-6,I can remeber years ago when V-8's had 200 horse power. Over all a great car,I give it a 10!!

Considered the GT1 but the XM radio receiver looks pretty bad centered on the roof in front of the sunroof. So far I'm pleased with the car, although I've only had it for about a month.

I absolutely love my GAGT. It handles like no other car I've driven for its price. Off the line my car took my friends c230 'kompressor' (manual) to the cleaners, not to mention his Celica GTS before that. I got my car fully loaded for under $24,000. What a deal! At 70MPH my engine is doing about two thousand RPM, its a heavy car and it shows on the freeway...I can hardly feel the wind. Only bad thing is the governor...but then again, who needs to go faster than 115 MPH when the car can get you there before you know it.

I bought a 2-dr GRAm GT (Black). While driving on the hwy a woman started coming in my lane. When I swirved to miss her I lost total control of my vehicle (Steering and Brakes !) hitting the contrete barrier on the hwy, crossed 4 lanes of traffic before I was hit in the psgr side door by a F-150 truck at 70mph. No one was with me, that person would have been dead. My "drivers cage" held up The psgr door was pushed over to the console. I do not visually remember hitting the wall or by the truck but I do remember the feeling of the brakes pulsing (ABS) and not being able to stop, and cranking the steering wheel with no control.
