Meh — It was an el cheapo car until I could afford a better one. I don't plan on having this car long term.The car gets really good gas mileage, but it lacks power. The engine is pretty reliable and I've had to put very little work into fixing the car.

Pros

I think the styling of the car is really nice. It makes for a really aerodynamic design.

Cons

Slow acceleration for a sporty car.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am — There are some trim issues on the exterior. Some basic things like windshield trim and paint defects in some areas like the door panels. Acceleration is kind of disappointing with the standard automatic transmission, it shifts slowly. Overall the car handles great around curvy roads.

Reliable Car — Great car! These cars are very reliable and seem to go forever with minimal maintenance. I have been a fan for a long time. I wish they still made them. It may be older but it can still get up and go!

Grand Am, The Car For Sensable People. — You want a car that's not too much money and gets you from place to place while being respected, but not flashy. This is the car you want! It's no small japanese. So if you like those. You're out of luck. It's a fun mid sized car to drive.

Real Good One. — Good car, has some pretty good power for a 4 cylinder. Trunk was roomy enough for 3 hockey bags and back seat could fit 3 teenagers, so lots of room. Car was a fun drive and good on fuel economy. Not too many problems, none overly expensive either. For a sedan the styling was very aggressive. If you're going to get one, get the 5 speed standard, the automatic is no good.

Teal Green — This was a good car I just did not care for it. I bought it after selling my truck and it did not compare. I was spoiled with the truck. But i would drive it today if I had it.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned — Performance... More than expected out of a 3.4 Braking... Good braking especially for the weight of the car Handling... Some body roll, corners better than the average coupe The car has great looks especially with the ram air hood. Interior looks great very compfy even on long trips. as far as gas mileage goes it could be better but im not a slow driver... Maintenance... grand ams have been known for having alot of problems i have had the usual pontiac problems besides that nothing big or unusual I have a lot of fun driving my car...its not the fastest but it is a very enjoyable ride!

Great Car For The Money — I love this car, this is my 2nd grand am and if they still made newer models I would probably continue to buy them. Of course fuel mileage is typical of a V6 so it's not an Toyota buy any means, it gets me to where I need to be and overall it is a sturdy and reliable drive.
