Hello, I just bought a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am Gt V6 (RamAir), and it currently holds about 45000 Miles on the Engine. Ive had it for about a week, and Ive noticed that the temperature gauge goes over the middle mark. It occaisonaly goes over by 1 mark, although the other day at the bank drive thru it reached two marks over the middle mark. I took it back to the dealership and some butch dyke at the Service Dept, said to take it to a Pontiac Dealership (it was a Nissan Lot). I asked the service manager there and he said ACCORDING to Pontiac it was normal. I bought the car AS IS and so I feel like everyone is feeding me Bull. Ive never had a car that had the temperature go over the middle mark unless it was seriously overheating becuase of a failed water pump etc. Can someone help me!? This is my first new car, (that I purchased becuase i got tired of old car trouble) Is this really normal or do I have a problem?
