    Fun Car, Good Solid V6 — I love this car. Great to work on. 3.4L 3400SFI V6 under the hood. stage 3 air intake, Hyper-ground kit, ecu upgrade, exhaust, and that's just the start. Running a 1600 watt amp with two 12 inch subs and two 10 inch subs.

    Pros: everything but the tranny

    Cons: no V6 with a stick

    Not Spectacular But Comfortable, Reliable And Moderately Powerful — Decent car - lacks horsepower compared to most cars in its class but has served me well for over six years.

    Pros: Great handling, road feedback.

    Cons: Poor build quality in a few areas - Lower intake manifold gasket replacement is VERY expensive and almost all will fail on GM cars of this age.

    Great Car — I had a few problems with car after purchasing in 2003. My computer went out 2 times before it was finally replaced and properly programed. Apparently, there was a recall on the computers and they were to be reprogramed. My first mechanic was oblivious but the second fixed it. Both were certified GM and Pontiac mechanics too. Once the problems were fixed, it has been a wonderful car. Things tend to break off and stop working. Other than that, it is a great car, sporty and smooth riding!

    None — After putting on new tires, 3 front bearings, a tie rod, 4 sets of pads and 2 rotors; I found out the calipers were shot, the power steering was hemorrhaging fluid,and the transmission had a leak. Oh yeah, the cylinder head had a little leak as well. It was a great ride, but I had to let it go.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: none

    Cons: none

    Fun To Drive, But Kind Of Unreliable And Tainted Reputation — This car is a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT 75th anniversary edition coupe. The car is silver with a grey leather interior. Fully optioned out and drives nicely. Engine replacement at about 150k miles for a blown head. Drives great, but needs some paint work and interior repairs. frequently has radiator problems, but has not overheated in the past 50k miles.

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

    Pros: Drivability

    Cons: Reliability
