2005 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #4

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?

I took my car in for the recall last Wednesday, October 29, 2014 after receiving the notice to a GM dealership here in denver, co to fix the ignition problem in the recall. I was told by the service center they cant fix the problem with my ignition without the original set of Pontiac keys from the manufacturer. I bought this car from drivetime dealership in Aurora in 2011, and the sets of keys that I received for the car were cut keys from the local hardware store. Right now I cant get this fixed, this car is dangerous to drive, the fuel line shuts down at any given random time. Im making payments on a car I cant drive, its unsafe. I was hoping the recall would fix this problem. I called drivetime dealer this morning Nov, 4th, 2014 to see what they can do for a key and was told they cant help me, the keys that were given to me are the keys they had at time of sale of the car, my car was bought at an auction she said....where do I get the manufacture original Pontiac key for this vehicle, since Pontiac is no longer in business" would GM be able to make me a key to this car from the VIN so I can drive it" I would like to drive this car without being scared it will shut off, it did last Saturday morning on the highway, fortunately no one has been was behind me when it decides to shut off so far !
