Do you really expect an answer to that question? It all depends on the quality of the parts, the maintenance performed, how hard the car is driven and dumb luck. I expect mine to make it to 200,000 miles.

if it is an SE = 2.4L = JUNK hopefully you have an SE with the upgraded 3.4L V6 then it will last you a long time with proper maintenance if you are unfortunate and have a 2.4L 4 cyl.... SELL IT !!!

I had the 2000 Grand Am SE, I sold it with 403,000 miles (original motor 2.4l and transmission) for 1000.00 cash and the girl I sold it to still drives it to this day. I now have the 2001 Grand Am with the 3.4l and it has 140,000 miles (im looking for 400,000 out of it to) Grand ams are indestructable My first one (2.4l) I ran into flood water up to windshield, car died of course. I took it home pulled spark plugs turned motor over shot the water out as much as possible. cleaned plugs put back in ran crappy for about 10 miles then smoothed right out, Soon after i was driving on wet roads and lost control hit concrete barrier wall smacked the back bumper into the backseat I drove the car away... They are excellent cars but keep up the maintenance..

That is good for that many miles.

I currently own a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am GT & bought it used on 2003. I now have 297,301 miles on it & still running great! I do my own oil changes when they are due. Only accident was hitting a deer back in Jan 2012, but kept it, fixed it up & still running. Original engine & trans in it.

Adding to the post above. The engine is the V6.
