2005 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #3

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • 117,880 miles


When I took my foot off the accelerator pedal, the pedal stuck and did not return back up. Instead it stayed down as though it was still being depressed causing the engine to rev. I had to physically grab the accelerator pedal and pull it towards me to try and return it back to its normal position. This happened on several occasions and I had to have the entire accelerator assembly replaced, I called GM only to be told that the recall on this known problem was for the 03 Grand Am models, not the 05 models. I wonder how many people have to die before GM decides they are better off financially to recall the 05 models?

On March 23, 2005 my car accelerated on its own and would not stop, which almost caused an accident. Contacted GM, and they said they couldn't do anything about it. I had it at the dealership and they could not duplicate the problem so they could not do anything.

The consumer experienced sudden acceleration. As a result, she crashed into an apartment. The speed was no more than 5-10 mph. When she hit the brake the car went out of control. The vehicle was a rental car.
