Bought this car when it was 8 years old with 128,000 miles. I was able to put 90,000 miles on it. I had "Pass Lock" issues which is a security issue that won't let you start the car unless you leave the key on the "on" position for at least 10 minutes. Cheap repair that resolved the problem. Intake manifold gaskets were replaced at 125,000 miles and again at 213,000 miles as well as the O-Ring in the fuel line. Next the head gaskets went. Other than that it is a great car that needs typical maintenance.

This car is a great car to start with. It is smooth and relatively comfortable. It has its pros and cons but thats the reason for why it is so affordable. I have had it for a while and It has not given me major problems. The only problems I have had have been electricity related. It has 155,000 miles on it and it still runs pretty smooth and the engine still sounds very good. Over all, if you are looking to buy your first car and this one specifically interests you, go right on ahead and try this one out. It is a great first car and I'm sure you will love it. Just make sure everything is running on it properly and as soon as you get it, have it checked by a mechanic. Its very fuel efficient, runs smooth, very comfortable, and sporty look.

When I turned 24, I decided I should finally buy my first car. I was nervous, but I had found some in my price range at Rydell Honda Nissan in Grand Forks. When I walked on the lot I was nervous and Ryan (one of the sales members) came out to greet me and see if I had any questions. He answered what I had and we took the Grand Am for a test dirve. I liked how it felt and after driving a few others, I felt this was the best choice. We went to do the paperwork and I got nervous again since I had some dings on my credit, but Ryan assured me that they would be able to help me out. And he was true to his word. I really enjoyed not only working with Ryan but working with the company to purchase my first car. I would absolutely have friends and family go to Rydell's to get their cars after the service I recieved.

I purchased my grand am almost brand new in 2001 with just 6,000 miles..It now has 177,000 miles and has proved to be reliable under the hood. The only "major thing" to have gone was the fuel pump..I have had this car for 11 years now and it is not great interior wise (knobs falling off, button on gear shift falling out) but for the little hiccups it has been a long term car.
