PONTIAC GRAND AM 2004

Grand Am

For a lot of its modern history, Pontiac continues to be the place to find legendary cars such as the Firebird and GTO. With your dedication to raciness, it could appear a little odd that whenever it came here we are at People in america to purchase a Pontiac for a lot of the eighties and 1990's, they extremely find the Grand Am, a vehicle that wouldn't know a smoky burnout from the backyard barbecue.

Summary:

GAS TANK RUPPTURED TRAVELING ON A ROAD FREE OF DEBRI AT A SPEED OF 20-25 MPH/ I HEARD A LOUD THUMP IN REAR OF VEHICHLE UPON ARRIVING HOME WHEN GETTING OUT I SMELLED A VERY STRONG GAS AROMA, LOOKING UNDER THE CAR GAS WAS STREAMING OUT OF BOTTOM OF GAS TANK IN ABOUT 6 STREAMS APPROXIMATELY 1-1 1/2 INCHES IN FRONT OF MY EXHAUST SYSTEM. NO ONE WITH GM SEEMS TO FEEL THIS WAS AN UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE FOR THE GAS TANK TO FAIL AT THIS SPEED OR THAT THERE WAS A SAFETY ISSUE. I HAD BEEN IN THE HAIRDRESSER FOR ABOUT 2 HR SO THE CAR WAS COLD AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT. I AM SCARED TO THINK WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED IF I HAD BEEN RUNNING A NORMAL DAY OF MY ERRANDS AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM WAS WARM WITH GAS STREAMING OVER IT. THEY ARE MAKING ME PAY $750.00 TO REPLACE THE TANK. I FEEL THAT THIS IS UNFAIR ALSO ANYONE OWNING THIS CAR LIKE MYSELF IS IN DANGER, AS THEY ARE MAKING LIGHT OF THE SITUATION AND COULD HAPPEN AGAIN TO MYSELF AND OTHER OWNERS. *AK

Summary:

NO OTHER MANUFACTURER, AMERICAN OR FORIEGN, HAS A HIGHER INCIDENCE OF WARPED FRONT ROTORS, AND WITHIN THE LAST DECADE THIS PROBLEM INCREASINGLY SHOWS ITSELF AT RELATIVEY LOW MILAGE. MY MOST RECENT EXPERIENCE (LAST 3 YEARS) WAS A NEW GRAND AM SE DEVELOPING PULSATING BRAKES AT 20K MI. THE DEALER FOUGHT WITH US TOOTH & NAIL AND SAID "THAT'S YOUR FAULT, WE AINT PAYING FOR ANYTHING!" I CALLED THE PONTIAC ZONE AND RAISED HELL, ..NO CIGAR. FINALLY GOT WITH THE SHOP MANAGER TO PULL THE ROTORS & PUT THEM ON THE LATHE AND SEE HOW TRUE THEY WERE. THEY WEREN'T, BUT WE KNEW THAT BEFORE WE GOT STARTED. THE BRAKE PADS SHOWED VERY LITTLE WEAR. CONCLUSION, I GOT HUSTLED OUT OF THE SHOP WITH "WE'LL TAKE CARE OF IT." THEY DID, A NEW BRAKE JOB AT NO CHARGE. THE SECOND CAR WAS A 2000 MALIBU. CHEVROLET, THEY SAID PAY US FOR NEW ROTORS OR TAKE A HIKE. WE HIKED. REPLACED THE BRAKES MYSELF AND THE PROBLEM CAME RIGHT BACK AROUND 18K MI. I SOLD THE CAR INSTEAD OF FIXING IT. MY LAST GM CAR IS AN 04 GRAND AM, AND WITH JUST 11K MI, ...HERE WE GO AGAIN!! GENERAL MOTORS KNOWS OF THIS PROBLEM. IT'S RAMPANT IN THE PRODUCT LINE- UP. TO ANNOUNCE A CHANGE WOULD BE STRICTLY FORBIDDEN AS A MATTER OF CORPORATE POLICY AS THAT MIGHT DRAW LIABILITY LEADING TO POSSIBLE CLASS ACTION SUITS. KEEP IN MIND THAT BRAKES ARE A SAFETY ITEM NOT SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS OF WARRANTY OR LIABILITY WHERE IT CAN BE SHOWN THAT GM "KNEW, OR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN", THAT THIS PROBLEM EXISTS. ERGO, OPENED ENDED LIABILITY. FURTHER, GM HAS KNOWN OF THESE POORLY PERFORMING PARTS THRU THEIR DEALERSHIPS AND HIGH VOLUME REPLACEMENTS ORDERED THRU THE DEALERS AND INDEPENDENT PARTS OUTLETS. AND FINALLY, THE ASTONISHING THING ABOUT THIS PART IS THAT IT'S AS LOW TECH AS IT GETS. IT'S NOTHING MORE THAN CAST PIG IRON. THE FIX IS IN THE METAL CHEMISTRY AND CASTING TECHNIQUE. WHERE GM GETS A FREE RIDE IS TO ARGUE THAT THIS ITEM IS "CONSUMABLE" AND SUBJECT TO WEAR AND ABUSE BEYOND THE MANUFACTURERS CONTROL.
