Pros

I loved the awesome black interior with the red accents and "wild cherry" accesseries.

Cons

I dont think that there was anything that I hated about this car.

35

Bottom Line- Great Car — I love the interior and the exterior of the car. Its performance was very good, as well. Cost to own this vehicle was very affordable. I also love to drive this car because it was a good looking car with a pretty good engine under the hood.

Love It — This car is just plan fun to drive and handles well. It use to be under powered but I changed that a few years ago. The car is now costing me more then it is worth but what should I expect from a car with 200,000 miles and is almost 14 years old.

My First Car. — Good cheap car that is reliable, somewhat sporty, and cheap on gas and insurance. It does the quarter mile in 15.9 seconds at 83 miles per hour at Gateway International Raceway. Most of all the car is made in United States.

Pros

Good daily driver

Cons

slow/purple

35

Grandam — 1997 pontiac Grand Am. Winter beater/ daily driver. Gets good mileage and it runs pretty good for having 155,000 miles on it. Gets me from point a to point be very safely and slowly and draws no attention whatsoever, unless i put it into a cement ditch and have to have a friend pull me out at 3 in the morning.

Pros

Inexpensive to buy and insure

Cons

too many repairs, it was 10 yr old

25

First Car — First car, I bought it in 2006 from a relative paid $300. Over the course of the year I had the car, I spent more in repairs than what I bought the car for. So, my mom got a a new car spring 2007, traded in the one I had, and bought my mom's old car, paid way less than it's book value.
