Completely Unreliable Car

by tictac186 from Reading, PA on Wed Apr 04 2007

This car was bought with 80,000, but it still had severe overheating problems after 3 trips to a mechanic within a few weeks. At 100,000 miles, engine completely died (two pistons frozen), abs brake light wouldn't turn off, cruise control stopped, head gasket majorly cracked, plus more. It pretty much died at 100,000. Would've cost 3,000+ to pass safety inspection. Tossed it after 2 months.

my 1994 Grand am Gt

by 1994 Grand am Gt owner from Winter Garden, Fl on Tue Jun 08 2010

My parents bought me a 1994 Grand am Gt after I got ripped off, buying a 1990 Mazda RX7, which turned out to be dead. I'm 20 right now and I've owned the car for a year. The car has been Very reliable. I have to say the gas mpg sucks on this car, I own the V6 model. The inside is okay, I hated the interior design at first but grew into it. The exterior is hot, this is one sexy car if you look at it up close, the factory body kit makes sure of that. It also feels like it has sports suspension, it's really stiff around turns, makes you feel like your going faster. Overall its a great car to own, definitely perfect for a first car. I probably wouldn't buy another one, but i would recommend it for someone who needs a reliable car

Our Take on the 1994 Pontiac Grand Am

Why a Camry coupe when for $7,000 less you can get a Pontiac Grand Am sedan?

Grand Am has been a consumer darling since it first appeared in the 1985 model year. Exceptional styling, above-average performance yet excellent mileage, and a price that doesn't put the new grad or the newlywed in debt until their retirement years.

Grand Am lacked one feature. It was penalized by GM's insistence that consumers wanted anti-lock brakes more than they wanted an air bag. The insistence was based on the fact GM makes its own ABS, but has to buy air bags from outside suppliers. So GM was guided by profitability rather than practicality.

For 1994, the bean counters have been overruled and... Read More
