problem #2

Mar 142011

Grand Am 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


Gauges and radio lose power while all the lights on the dash come on. I checked the fuses, but no culprits found. Which other relays or what can be the source of the misery?!! When will the incessant issues end?!!

problem #1

Jul 202009

Grand Am 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

I have had many problems with this car. The engine light is always on, the steering column always squeaks, the clicker on the turn signal goes off whenever it wants to, I have no idea what my mileage is half the time because the dash lights don't work. My driver's window is currently being held up by duct tape, the passenger window is broke, coolant leaks, breaks do NOT work when it rains, knob to change from A/C to defrost is broke, antenna doesn't work well, I can't turn my car on if the "security" light is on (which like to happen when I get off work at, oh, 1am), the dash was broken when I bought it as well as the paneling under the steering wheel (which my leg hits every time I switch pedals), I can't make a left turn without a sensor telling me I'm loosing fluid, and the overhead lamp is broken.

I can say this much, it's better than the last car I had which was older than I was. With as much that has gone wrong and still is wrong with this car, though it may be annoying and will be costly for me to get fixed, I have to look at the good side. It gets me from "a" to "b" with decent gas mileage, which is more than can say.

I have learned a few lessons from this; never buy an American made car just to save some money, because that's what the manufacturers do. Use cheap products and labor to save a penny at the cost of the buyer. And never buy used from a dealer. Always get the driver's input before you buy. Last but not least, Always, always, always get an older person who has had more than two vehicles to help you buy one. They will ALWAYS know what they are talking about.
