Smile Hello and Good day all GAGT Owners!

Hello, I am currently a proud owner of a Black 2002 GT with 120,000 miles and i love it so far it has everything from cd/cassette monsoon(Which rattles my rearview mirror ) not a single problem with the car and i sold my lincoln towncar(it was killing me on gas) just to get one of these beautiful machines now i hear theres so many problems with the Grand AM but yet i see so many Grand AM's and Prix on the road still running strong i also been advised to watch out for the Intake Manifold and PasslockII System. i mean i won't let peoples pontiac bashing opinions get in my way of me changing my mind to sell my black beauty. but i would like to know more about these cars and what can i do to my grand am to make it last.
Thank You and i am glad to be a part of Grand AM Fourms.

Talking

the only plans i have for the car is putting in a G6 3.5 V6 to be a tad bit more reliable and i hear putting in the 3500 is alot easier to do than putting in the Grand Prix's 3800 or 3800SC which requires more work.

Thank you for searching and not posting a thread about dropping in the 3800 SC. I like you already. Welcome.

Welcome n00b. The LX9 is a stout motor, and can make more power than the existing LA1.
