Bought a used 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT about two months ago and safety inspection sheet said car was up to par. Not so, just after buying the car the sway bar link was found to be almost broken and the brakes failed just after 5000 miles. Parts were replaced for both and the old parts to the brakes are available to view.
