1991 Pontiac Grand Am Overview

A basic compact family car and one of Pontiac's best sellers, the 1991 Pontiac Grand Am didn't find it necessary to mess with the final year of the current generation of cars. Available as a sedan or coupe, new for 1991 is a base STD trim to go with the LE and top-of-the-line SE.
Both the base and LE have the same 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder 105-hp engine (demoted 5-horsepower from last year), but the LE comes with a lot more options. While the base can choose cruise control, air conditioning, and a rear defrost from the list, the LE has additional extras like power windows, locks, and mirrors, fog lights, sunroof, and roof rack, as well as a Sports package that added SE features such as a sports suspension, Rallye gauges, the 2.3, 180-hp Quad 4, and alloy wheels. Along with the high output Quad 4, the SE had standard air conditioning, power locks and windows, cruise control, and the sports package. New for the 1991 Grand Am SE was standard ABS brakes.

The affordable family sedan or coupe was rated at 22/33 mpg, faring decently for a domestic compact car. Owners liked the roomy seating and trunk, but made particular mention of the sporty handling and good pickup of the 1991 Grand Am. They also liked the style. Unfortunately, the Grand Am seems to exhibit a lot of mechanical problems, and drivers mention the head gasket and alternator a lot. The engine is loud, and the exterior suffers from paint chipping and rust. Most owners say it is an adequate car to get you from A to B.
