2003 Pontiac Grand Am Overview

In 2003, the Pontiac Grand Am became Pontiac's only compact car offering in its lineup, as the small Sunfire was discontinued. This could only increase the Grand Am's already high popularity (among the top ten cars sold in the U.S.), along with its stylish looks and energetic performance in the guise of an affordable family car.
The SE2 returns in the 2003 Grand Am, but only as a sedan. In fact, all SE, SE1, and SE2 trims are sedans only. The GT and GT1 come in sedan or coupe. The SE and SE1 feature the 2.2 Ecotec, 140-hp engine and either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. The SE2, GT, and GT1 come with
the 3.4-liter, 170-hp V6 (175-hp in the GTs). The V6 is matched only with the auto tran. While the GTs feature more sports tuning, the SE2 is an upgraded family sedan, offering luxuries such as a 6-way driver's seat, leather trim, and cruise control.
Other additions in the 2003 Grand Am are an XM radio option and standard OnStar on all but the base SE. The SE also loses standard ABS, which becomes an option in 2003. On the outside, the ribbed body cladding is removed from all SE sedans, but the racier GT gets to keep it along with a lower ride height, sunroof, and rear spoiler. A 30th anniversary Grand Am package is offered in the GT trims only.
Most 2003 Grand Am owners are pleased with the engine performance, even in the I4. They say the handling is excellent and the driving experience fun and sporty. Overwhelmingly, owners are drawn to their Grand Ams for the outside appearance. Classic, yet with a touch of sporty aggressiveness. But on the inside, the seats, storage room, and dash layout are practical for family use. Complaints focus on a cramped rear seat, particularly in the coupe, and a general feeling that the seats are too low and uncomfortable for long trips. Repairs will set you back, and owners point out early brake pad and rotor wear and intake manifold problems. They also want a manual transmission in the V6.
