For A First Car, It's Done Pretty Good. — Actually, I do like the look of the car. It doesn't exactly look like a fire bird, but hey, you can tell the raceing blood still flows through it's veins (or gas lines, to be more precise). It is quite comfortable, holding three adults in the back is no problem. It is no Cadillac though, you will notice when you hit a bump in the road, but it won't jar you either. It gets 26 mpg, so it does ok. It has had lots of repairs, all done by me and my dad. Like I said, it was in a reck long before I got it , so it's almost expected to have problems. For a four banger, it's ok on accleration. I will say it is a tank. I've driven in flood waters so high they were up to the engine and it trucked on through. Actually there was an old raised toyota pickup behind me when I did drive through the water and I left him in the dust (or mud more like it). Overall, good little car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Spaceious car, and I'm 6 foot tall at 250 lbs. I can sit comfortably in the front or the back. The dash lights up red, which is pretty sweet. And honostly, the I like how it drives and looks.

Cons: The poor car has more parts thrown into it than junk yard has on it's lot. It was in a reck long before I got it, so does it surprise you?

I Llove It. — overall i love this car. its pretty easy to maintain and fix up. it could have some changes such as the exhaust should have a y-pipe like the newer modles. other than a few worrisome things its what u would look for in a front-wheel drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its small, sporty, cheap, and plenty of upgrades.

Cons: i wish it had more of a one off sound.

Great Car — Loved this car, it handled great in the snow and was pretty good on gas. Had to replace the heating core on it which was a pretty major job. Finally had to get rid of it after it got a rod knock at 215,000 miles.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handled great

Cons: not very many safety features

First Car, Had To Start With Someting. I Will Never Buy One Again. — This was the car that started it all. Had the 3.3L V-6, good torque but the car overall was very slow. This car took a beating and kept ticking. Loved to eat crankshaft sensors. Traded it in for the 1993 talon.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I wouldn't drive it again.

Cons: PONTIAC

The 1993 Pontiac Grand Am — This car was only about 3 years old when i bought it from a very close friend. The paint had started to peel off the hood during the first year of my friends' ownership so by the time I got the car it had a really bad sunburn. There was plenty of power from the V-6, but the drawback was that during even moderate braking the front of the car would dive. The interior was like a spaceship and got high marks from me for ergonomics and styling. The nosediver got sold to a work friend and one day during a sudden stop the nose dove so far that back end lofted and that's when the other car hit. Luckily the drivers were not hurt but the poor old Grand Am was toast.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior was like a wrap around spaceship cockpit.

Cons: Poor handling, paint, fuel economy

My Nice Car For Now — well i cant seem to say much about this car yet the v6 has a lot of poer i recently got this car and have had a lot of fun rebuilding it although the motor mount design and to pull the engine sucks because of the way that the engine mounts are designed other than that parts are readily avalible if you can find a head gasket major problem with the 3.1 engine once you have over come that it is a great car with loads of power good handeling and reliabilty.... this car well stays sitting now for i now have transmissions soleniod problems cannot find the exact same trans that it is in it all are newer and to get it rebuilt properly will cost 1600 the photo here is before i started to rebuild and it does look a fair amount different now

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

Cons: constant overheating issue one part after another

Purple Nightmare — This was a car to drive to college until it broke down on me. It blew head gaskets all the time. Seemed like we were always putting parts in it. It was fun to drive. It was purple and real cute for a college girl. But it was a POS and I had to get something else that was dependable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good for a starter car

Cons: Old, blew head gaskets, went through brakes like crazy

That Was My Good Ol' Pontiac — Great speed, brakes were great, handling was awesome. I bought it for $600.00 at an auto sales type deal and it had some problems but they didnt show till a little after I started driving and that was there was a crack in the radiator, so it was always over heating. The thermostat was stuck. The floor board under the drivers side was rusted so everytime you went through a puddle in the road your feet would be soaked..lol. From what you could actually see The car looked really really nice inside and out. I got about 20 - 22 miles to the gallon. It handled great so it was really fun to drive especially on curvy roads.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handled Curves really good

Cons: GrandAm's in general? Nothing, GrandAm's are great and tough little cars.

The Car Is Ok — The electrical doesn't ever seem to be working properly and the check engine light comes on often enough to drive me nuts, but not often enough to diagnose. The car is a great family car and it rocks in the snow.

Pros: good in snow, comfortable

Cons: wiring is flaky
