Prudent to buy 2004 Pontiac Grand AM


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 I am new to the Forum and I have a question about buying a 2004 Grand AM with about 57,000 miles on it from a local used car dealer.  It is a beautiful car, but I have concerns about the purchase.  Is it prudent to purchase this car?  My main concern is availability of parts.  The car will be an everyday driver and I live in the Northeast, so snow and salt will be a factor in the winter months.  If anyone is able to give any guidance on this matter; it will be greatly appreciated.  I grew up driving Pontiacs and still love the way they look.  Thank you.  I apologize if this Post is in the wrong Thread.

First off, :welcomeFP:

Are you looking to buy this because you just want the car or are the usual concerns of money weighed in as well? If you're just looking for a Pontiac, you may be able to get a newer G6 or G5 (cars in the Grand Am's class) in better condition. 

Parts though are probably in abundant for a Grand Am as they were pretty popular in their generation (I still see them on the roads in good numbers). Just goes with anything that is purchasing a 12 year old car for a daily driver.

welcome, there is a huge aftermarket for those cars. As far as snow I always suggest (I do it on all my cars) that you take it to line-x and have them spray the undercarriage. It is a rubbery substance that hardens. It will add weight to the car but to help the car last longer it is worth it.
