    My Baby — What can I say about this car, I love it. This is the first car I've ever purchased from a dealership. I bought her in 2006, with only 9,998 miles on the ticker. She's already 5 years old!!!!! The previous owner was a GM executive and had a company vehicle so the Grand Am was his weekend cruiser!!! But anyways, The picture I posted above is from the day I bought her, she looks quite a bit different now. She's got a PONTIAC banner across the windshield, windows are tinted, 20% in the front, 5% on all the back windows. I used to have a 3.5 inch fiberglass cowl induction hood on her too but it got some nasty cracks in it over the winter so I had to get rid of that. She's a strong performer, I've done a handful of beautiful powerbrakes with her, locking up the e-brake on a hill of course lol. but yeah, the only complaint I have with the car is the fact that there is about a million of them on the road at any given time, but there is a good aftermaket out there for these cars so making one unique isn't too hard.

    Pros: Good looks, loads of aftermarket parts available

    Cons: Automatic

    Pontiac Grand Am Is A Good Choice — I love how it has held up, very good quality. I haven't had any problems with it so far. Bought it used with over 100 thousand miles, mostly highway miles. It's fun to drive, has a sleek look even though it is 7 years old. Very popular and a lot of people have them. Overall I love my car! Not as much as I will love my '61 Corvette someday though...

    Pros: It will last a long time

    Cons: It's not the hottest car and everybody and their dog owns one

    2001 Grand Am — I bought this car when my old one died, its an amazing car and it goes pretty fast but when i add a turbo it will go alot faster. Its white with the blackest tint you can get. I put straight pipes on it and the pipes ring nicely, nice and loud.

    Pros: Straight pipes, acceleration, handling, Cold air intake, Centre 3 gauges

    Cons: gas mileage

    Good Car For The Money! — Pontiac has delivered an all around solid car. The 2.4 is a peppy motor, that delivers excellent performance throughout the power band. The Getrag 5 speed has light, short throws, with a light clutch. Handles well, though the car is a little heavy, with little body roll. Power steering is speed-sensitive, but is plagued with the same issue as many other GM products; the steering is rather 'numb', and does not have a good 'on-center' feel. The only thing aesthetically I don't like about the car is the ugly mouldings down each side of the car; the '03 and up models have done without them, and look much better. Overall, it's a good car. Good performance, and good mileage (I usually will get 4-500km per tank), however with gas at $1.22 a liter, a fill from dead empty will set you back around $60.

    Pros: 2.4 engine is peppy, good mileage

    Cons: Mouldings don't look like they belong on the car!

    Mine — It gets me where I need to go, and I have only had a few things go wrong with it, but nothing major. Its pewter in color and has over a hundred thousand miles on it, but it has been very reliable. My grandfather bought it for me when my old car got stolen and wrapped around a telephone pole. God rest his soul. I'm dreading having to get rid of it but I guess sometimes you have to move on.

    Pros: sporty looking, reliable

    Cons: its getting old and may not be reliable for another year

    Sufficient Personal Transportation Appliance — Pontiac, the "Excitement Division" of GM, produced a mediocre car in the 2001 Grand Am. The only excitement is the tacked-on plastic ribs on the side.

    Pros: Decent MPG, right size for me, daughter's car seat looks good in back, don't worry much about it getting stolen, A/C, crank windows

    Cons: Electrical problems, no options, rear seats don't fold down, ugly spoiler, crank windows

    It Was My First Car — I think that this car is solid. I enjoyed it while I had it. The 2.4l DOHC I4 is solid and runs well. However, the interior build quality is terrible. It is cheap and reminds me of motel quality carpet. It is obvious that the majority of the build cost was put into the drivetrain. Even though it is FWD, it is still possible to wrech and do your own repairs. You just have to be more careful and have a variety of tools.

    Pros: Solid engine and transmission, good gas milleage, and roomy for a mid-size sedan.

    Cons: I4 engine too big for great MPG and too small for great HP/MPH. Interior build quality
