2004 Pontiac Grand Am Reviews
170,000 miles and counting. Other than normal wear and tear, it's been a reliable vehicle. Never gave me any problems.
No maintenance has been required in 7 years except for normal wear and tear. Tires, wiper blades etc. Replaced front disk brake pads at 60,000 miles but they could have easily lasted another 20,000. The only major complaint about the car is rear view visibility.
It sucks and there are more than one blind spot. Really have to check the rear view and side mirrors before passing etc. All in all this has been a great car.
The 2004 Pontiac grand am is theworst car ever. It has a problem evey day. The security system always malfunctions, the coolant leaks out, the head gaskets go bad, the check engine light is always flashing. No matter how many times you fix it, it always goes back again. This car absolutely sucks!!!
Replaced the Fuel pump and filter on my 2004 Pontiac Grand Am about two months ago. Now the fuel guage is not working properly. Should the Fuel Level Sensor have been replaced with the pump and filter? Whats the typical cost to replace the sensor on this vehicle?
Love my Grand Am GT, no problems with this car!!
