that's about 66,000 miles. It's not a lot of miles...just a bit above average for the age. I own an Alero (pretty much a Grand Am, just stripped of the sporty options, but made up for with...uh, clearable headlights) and the only thing I've heard of from the 3400 is the oil gasket leak, and that the OEM brake rotors are prone to warping. Other than that, nothing major to worry about. (keep an eye out for minor probs with the window regulator- glass comes off tracks once in a while, meaning 42,000 miles [92000Km], and the hazard light relay...recalls on the Alero's relay will be out in May, not sure if the GAGT was part of it)

But that warranty is a selling point. It'll take care of those problems pretty much for free. :)

If it comes with a warranty..it's a good deal.
