Most reliable car

by Mustang 36 from Aurora, IL | May 11, 2014

A grand am was my first car and i love it. When I am going 50 it makes me feel like I am actually going 50mph unlike some of these newer cars. I have not had to fix much on this car except little things like a window motor. I love this car.

A Red 96 4cyl.

by Mr.Dad from Riverside, Ca | December 15, 2009

It was a great car for the first 7months it was strong good on gas and the inside was ok i bought it when it was just under 60,000mil. But once things started to break down it was one thing after an other and it was a domino affect.

moneys worth & more

by Love my GT GrandAM from Baltimore, MD | June 22, 2009

Great car purchased new and has been regularly maintained for 13 years. 30 mpg which is great for a V6. Great trunk space. Bucket seats better for a younger back - though lumbar support very effective. While great for "just getting around." Also used for commute to work and a cross country move. Loved this car!

niggling issues, no doubt, but v. economical

by Meli from Morgantown, WV | July 25, 2007

I have been fairly pleased with this car. If you don't put some money into your car every month, at least with oil changes and fuel additives, I wouldn't be surprised if you are unhappy with the performance of your car. However, I do everything I can to take care of this car, and the problems it gives me are mostly annoyances, not serious issues. I don't think it handles as well as a car could. It still looks normal in a parking lot, not old like it is, and mine (4 door SE) is loaded with features.
