2004 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

Grand Am

  • 40,000 miles


Vehicle won't start. It doesn't happen every day, just when I'm in a hurry or late for appointment. Called dealership. Funny this is, they knew exactly what to do! turn the key to the on position and wait 10 minutes. It always starts....for now! I don't understand why GM hasn't recalled this. Also, the dash is warped and putting pressure on windshield. I'll never own another GM vehicle.

Dash began peeling back at the windshield shortly after new warranty expired. Now it so warped that it is cracking and breaking every vent cover, or it pops them out as you drive! (not fun late at night when you get hit by who knows what in the dark!) my latest concern ~ recently it has separated above the steering column, exposing the wiring (incl. Airbag) inside to dust, moisture, etc. Local dealer says this would have been covered under original warranty, but not under GM extended major guard. :-( they made me a 'deal' at cost to replace it for $700. GM corporate office declined to help, other than offer $1,000 towards cost of a new vehicle....which at the time was a promotion available to anyone!!
