I got a 98 Grand Am at auction for only around $1000 and this vehicle is a GREAT performer for that price. When purchased it had about 100,000 miles on it already and its close to 146,000 now. It has only given me a couple issues, a sensor going bad and a heater core blowing. Its got a great paint job that still looks shiny as new and its a sturdy stable feeling car, unlike the tin can junk of today. Besides brakes being a little sloshy, the car has a lot of power (mine is the V6) and is a great highway car. Definitely a great value, and if properly cared for, I think this car will possibly make 200,000 if I want to take it that far.

this is my first vehicle, purchased in February 2007. i have the Grand Am GT and i love it so far. i got the works, CD and Cass, V6, automatic, sunroof. the car handles like a dream, and the brakes stop you promptly and very precisely. the only problem i would have are the padding on the seats are just a tad thin. but that is not really a worry, just a comfort issue. this car though, has one heck of a sound system and i feel great every time i drive it. Great Job Pontiac on this one.

Nice Interior and Exterior Design

by from Reson, VA on August 20, 2007

I bought this car used in Lawrence KS and even though it has some milleage on it, it still runs great. I love the exterior design and overall appearence. I haven't had any problems with it.

We purchased two of these vehicles new in 1998 and just traded one of them in. Both cars ran for over 10 years with a minimum of repairs. Major items replaced are: Power steering pump and radio on both. The alternator, clutch, water pump, several O2 sensors, and parts of the ignition system on just one of them. Most items were replaced after the 6th year. The one traded had the most repairs and 130,000 miles on it. The one we kept only has 90,000 miles on it so we expect several more years of service from it.

i had one that was used....that might have been the problem. it was terrible. there was a leak somewhere in the car that just couldn't be found and it always smelt like mold.the handling was terrible as you almost always had to do a 3 point turn in even a large space if you wanted to be about face.
