A Great Reliable Car With Sports Look. — When researching this car it had great fuel economy, wider base, and low maintenance. I liked the look and the appearance of this car. It handles the road well, and makes it a joy to drive. All the controls are at a convenient location.

Pros

Just a fun car to drive. It has really been a throw back to the old days of driving for the sake of driving.

Cons

I have never been a fan of front wheel drive.

I Call This One The "poor Man's Gto". — It's interesting that the Rally Racing hood changes the appearance & the feel of driving the car so much. Without it - it is just another little car, with it driving through the Arkansas hills; it’s a road course in NASCAR that will get you in trouble.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

All Around Nice Car — I like the power and handling, also has good gas mileage and spacious interior if there are only 5 small people. Only room for 1 larger person and a carseat in the back if you have children. All around still a good reliable car!

Decent — Loved this car when only needed 5 seats. Had to get SUV but loved this car. Power and style and drove for 10 years. Interior was good but bad layout of cup holders. Basically 1 good usable for driver. Steering wheel controls a must

Pros

This car has run reliably through four cross country trips without much issue.  The front seats are comfortable and it was priced well when I bought it.

Cons

Gets less than 20 miles per gallon and about 250 miles per tank.  Visibility is not great but you get used to the blind spots and are able to adjust for them.

It Isn't The Bat Mobile But It's Fun To Pretend — I bought this car when I was barely 21, I had literally one day to make a purchase and I bought the only car in my price range. I don't know anyone who sings the praises of Pontiac but this car has lasted quite a while with very few problems. I have driven it across a big chunk of the country four times so I feel as though I have bonded well with it although I cannot honestly say I would buy another one (I miss Hondas which are my true love). I have kept up with regular maintenance and eight years later it still runs well.

Dependable — I liked everything about the car. Stereo sounds good for factory stereo. It has good get up and go engine. It rides real smooth on the road and there is a lot of leg room for the people in the back seat.

Pros

Size and color are actually why I bought this car, and that it is one of the only V6's still readily available at a decent price.

Cons

That a lot of the electrical does not work properly, but this is because the dealership did not fix the car before selling it.

If Everything Would Have Worked From Day 1 I Would Love This Car. — I bought this car used, and it had been used quite a bit. It isn't the car's fault, but they sold it to me in not a very good condition. But everything that does work works well, and I love driving my car :]

Amazing — The acceleration of this car is down right amazing, it brakes very well and it handles like no other, i bought it back in 2008 for 8k with 76,000 miles, this car is very fun to drive, i love taking it out and just cruising, the only repairs i have done on it is get new rotors, shoes and pads (this only because i use my brakes to the limit). The exterior of my car is cool. I recently purchased a 35"x6' window decal that I applied myself. It is on the top of the windshield and spans the width of the glass. It basically says "Grand Am" but its pretty BA. All in all, I definitely recommend this car. In the near future (3-4 months) i plan on purchasing a 2010 Camaro 2SS.
