Hello from Cincinnati Ohio GAGT :boogie:

I just got a 98 Grandam GT 4dr yesterday and came upon this site.

Got a nice deal on it at 3500$ with 72k on it. I bought it from a neighbor when a stubborn toyota dealer would not give her more than 2500$ for it. I always complimented her car so she called me from the dealership and we ended up doing the deal right there.

So far I am very happy with the car and hope to learn alot from this site :metal:

Yeah, the 96-98 GrandAms are (from what I've read and personally experienced) the most reliable years of the GrandAm.

The biggest problems were blowing head gaskets on the Quad-4s, but the 96-98 years all have the TwinCam which is the revised version.

The 96-98 V6s don't suffer from the leaky intakes anywhere near as frequently as the next generation did.

I have a 97 GT, looks just like yours except it's black.

my 96 was kinda shoddy (head gasket blew, tranny failed, elec system bizarre) but who knows what the previous owner did in the 84000 miles before I had it :-P Good luck w/it, I loved mine despite its weirdnesses :)
