"This car was truely amazing. I bought it from an estate sale from an elder woman. The car had about 50,000 miles on it although i am going to donate it to someone the car has about 180,000 miles on it. This car has never and i mean never left me stranded any where. Although some things have gone wrong but that happens with all cars i was able to still get home and then get the repair done. That happened like literally once or twice. But i was never left stranded any where. I had the 6 cylinder and it is still running today 6/25/14 and starts right up. Need couple things fixed on him right now but runs perfect. Besides normal maintenance and normal wear and tear this car is awesome and i truely loved him (Timmy) my 1995 pontiac grand am with 180,000 miles on him and still starts right up no problem and runs perfect. With that being said this car has been by far one of the best running cars ibe ever owned. And yes ive owned quite a few in my time. If you take care of your car it will take care of you. Look at this it will speak for itself the car is a 95 this is 2014 the car is 19 years old with 180,000 miles on it. If the minor things were fixed i would get right in and drive anywhere in it. The only reason im going to donate it to someone is because i wanted to get something newer. But if i go out right now he will start right up and i know it. Finally Pontiac you did a great job making that car. It is and was an amazing car, well for me it was. I still have and will donate to anyone who can turn a wrench because with a little maintenance you could get inspected and drive it today literally cause he starts right up and runs perfect. Just cosmetic work needed."

"Mine is a 4 cylinder and I can't say enough as to how great it handles on the road and corners. It handles like a sports car ! And the fold down in the back seat is great for skis or lumber. It's amazing how much I have been able to haul when moving in my car."

"mine had a problem that is not rare in the 96 year of this car. there Is a sensor that goes bad and it is expensive so what happens is that your car thinks it is sliding so it locks out when you try to stop so you skid out a lot but after that the car was great"

"I bought this car from a friend who has owned this for 8 yrs and all he had to put in it was new starter, new tires, exhaust, brakes, tune up, and heater core is it. tires, brakes, and tune are expected with almost all cars, this has been maintained and they r reliable. I use this in very rough driving conditions and after 2500 miles, the oil still looks brand new and doest burn or leak. I love this car as they r easy to maintain"

"I bought this car six years ago before I started college and have traveled all over Colorado with it. Apart from the normal upkeep and the regular break downs that happen with every car, I have never had a major problem with this car. All cars break down, or parts wear out and need maintenance every once in a while. I was very fortunate to have a car that almost never broke down and was great on mileage and was tough. Hardly anything can damage this car if someone runs into it. I've put a lot of money into fixing my car, but it was worth it because it lasted me for 6 years and through college. It is an inexpensive car but extremely reliable."
