Its Alright I Guess — This car had some balls, but the transmission was horrible, they only last like 75,000 miles on average. Also, if you have more than 2 people in the car it has horrible acceleration. Don not buy one EVER!

Pros: Sharp looking, quick

Cons: Not reliable

Cheap Fun — With the v6 that you find in the grand prix. It is fast enough to get you there. Aftermarket parts are few and far between but the ones you can find are quality.

Pros: Quick, Normal gas usage, Get one with a moon roof.

Cons: older car.

Decent "first" Car, But Very Unreliable Under The Hood. — Probably the worst car I've ever owned, despite it having a factory CD player (that only sometimes worked). The V6 didn't have a lot of power despite its 3.1L displacement, and there was always at least three things wrong with it, whether it was electrical, mechanical, or cosmetic.

Pros: Engine and transmission held up alright

Cons: Always broken

Meh... It's A Pontiac — It's a pretty strong car when you are not fixing it. It seems like it won't go 3 months without something going wrong. The 3.1L engine is notorious for common problems and being difficult to work on. I replaced the transmission at about 125,000 miles and then the motor at about 142,000 miles. Even a simple task like changing the spark plugs requires taking out the motor mounts and tilting the entire engine forward because the spark plugs are in the back of the motor. It has a slick look to it though and like I said, it is a strong car when everything is working properly.

Pros: Looks good.  Strong when working properly

Cons: 3.1L motor is notorious for problems and is difficult to work on.

Parts Car's In Progress. — Intake manifold leaks. I personally see at least 20 a week in my place of work. GM slipped up hardcore when they built the most popular 60 degree V6. A problem with the intake manifold gaskets where the coolant (usually Dexcool) leaks onto the manifold. In the most common and extreme cases, the heads will actually warp and cause a headgasket leak. People like to blame Dexcool but the fact of the matter is that if you take care of your car and do the PROPER maintainence at or before its due, time or mileage-wise, it will treat you right. I mean don't get me wrong, GM screwed up bad, I've seen brand new 3500s with coolant sweats on the intake. What they should've done from the get-go is change the gasket design instead of continuing with it for 10+ years. Now they're in court (in the US) because of it.

Pros: Good for 3.1L MPFI parts :P

Cons: Stupid Stupid Stupid

95 Grand Am Se — This is my 95 Grand am SE. i've had the car for just over one year now and i bought it because it runs good and had low miles (56,000) when i bought it. and i've put almost 40000 miles onto it. the car has lots of low end torque but i could have some more HP

Pros: great ride, 16" Enki rims

Cons: manual windows, no AC

The Good Old Grand Am — Good Power out of the 3.1 those tires had no problem loosing grip.... Got mine up to 110 on I-95. My drivers side Electric window didnt work so paying tolls was a pain in the as so i put a screw driver in the door panel to hold the window up and pulled it out to let it fall back down again..lol

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great handling... alittle heavy on turns but the torque pulled u hard around the curves..i liked the front end design of this car the rear as well all smooth.. the lights and grill give a mean strong appearance

Cons: the 3100 series motor was a good motor but the intake manifold gaskests /head gaskets went...on every 3100 v6 i had from the 90's they all died the same exact way.. so id rather would have had the 3300 or 3800

Small, Sporty, And Practical — 2dr sport coupe. 2.3L L4, 3 speed w/ OD auto. Avg mpg - 25 3 speed makes for slower acceleration: first 2 gears are good, 3rd gear's power band spread too far and wide (Edit: Gears 1 and 2 are fine. 3rd and OD are a little off) 2.3 offers 150 hp and 155 ft-lbs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good amount of power

Cons: Avoid the 3 speed (Edit: If given more power this tranny should work fine)
