My Grand Am — if there was a car out there that you owned and loved until it broke this would be the one. It was reliable until it broke for the first time then it just went down hill from there. I wish it was easier to fix but it really does suck being the fact that it has a dual over head cam, and everything is driven by the timing.

Good For The Average Commuter, Useless For Those Who Demand Any Kind Of Performance — After the Buick died due to a supermassive transmission failure, I was forced to condescend to the level of the average high school student and drive a bottom-end economy car. Although it supposedly provides somewhat spirited performance with the optional 3.1 L V6, the 2.4 L Quad 4 engine is abysmal. Although this is supposed to be an economy car, I have averaged about 20 mpg through the 6 months I have driven this car. This would be acceptable if it provided at least decent performance, but it is equally lackluster in this area. Throttle response is slow, takeoffs are slower, and the engine provides plenty of bark at high rpm's but not much bite. The car is also extremely noisy on the highway and freeway, due in part to the constant need to downshift to maintain speed even on slight downhill grades. The build quality is terrible. The interior pieces constantly squeak and don't fit together very well. There is also excessive road noise at highway speeds. This car does have some good points. The sound system is pretty good for a mid-90's economy car, and the seats are fairly comfortable, although the position makes it difficult for shorter drivers to see the road. There is also plenty of legroom in the front seats. My personal favorite feature of this car is the huge amount and variety of storage spaces in the front, especially the dual gloveboxes, although the only cupholder in the center console is awkwardly positioned under the radio and there is no cupholder in the center glovebox.

Cheap

Cons

Unreliable

25

Don't — High maintenance. somewhat reliable. Good first car. Ive had the car for a little bit over a year and have already had to replace radiator, water pump, transmission. I also blew a head at 140k miles, that combined with a rear main leak and worn oil pump required engine replacement. Lately I've been having a problem with the wheel studs becoming stressed and breaking off
