Cons: All the extra noises that come along with the engine.
Advice: Move on.What's that knocking????
Pros: ram air and appearance especially the chrome tech torqued wheels
Cons: leather seats not heated and not enough support from the side bolsters
Advice: get the gt1 model or at least the gt model as they look much better than the se model and they also have the ram air v6fun car to drive and it looks great the upgrade to the gt1 and solid value package with leather seats,moonroof,and chrome tech torqued wheels is worth the extra money the 4 door model makes it easier to put a car seat in the back and for adults to get in and out of the back seat the car is a great value when compared to other cars in its class especially when taking advantage of the $2002 rebate being offered by GM
Pros: The sound system
Advice: It drives as well as it looks.The performance of this car was great. It had a lot of power along with control and comfort. The way this car looks really contributed to pursuading me to purchase the Grand Am GT.
Pros: It rides comfortably when it is not on a tow truck.
Cons: It is mechanically unreliable with seemingly poor quality parts.
Advice: Don't purchase this car. It is much more trouble than it is worth.This vehicle rides quite well, when it runs. We have two Grand Ams in the family and both have left us stranded on multiple occassions. It seems to be plagued with battery and electrical problems and in general uses poor quality parts (we have had to replace a gasket within the engine, a belt, the alternator, front brakes, the body control chip module, the cassette deck and the coolant cap. I have already had multiple repairs totalling several thousand dollars worth of work on my 2 1/2 year old Grand Am and had to have it towed back to the dealership again today. It was there only 28 days ago for the same problem. If you want reliability, this car is definately not the one to buy. I am a proud American and I support my country as I can, but I am also a hard working consumer who expects some quality and dependability in exchage for my hard earned dollars. Pontiac failed drastically. You and your family deserve better. Don't get stranded. Don't buy a pontiac.

Advice: test drive and if you like it,, buy, buy, buyIt handles wonderful, very responsive engine, great braking and smooth stops.. good visibility,, great sunroof and good trunk space which is even better once back seats or one is folded down,, if you can take advantage of this,. trunk deck is too high,, have to lift cargo too high to place in trunk,, a drawback,, great styling with performance and great family sedan or flashy for the single person,, love it and would buy one again,, great gas mileage,, Ed,,, SeaGrey@worldnet.att.att
