About

This was my mom's car since i was 14...I learned to drive in it, got my first ticket in it, and went out on my first date with it, lol....Once i sold my metro last year because of high mileage, my parents gave me the grand am to use for college and work, and my mom bought a brand new equinox :)...

Powertrain Options and Availability
Pontiac base SE model comes equipped with the single overhead-camshaft Quad OHC. At introduction, it provides 120 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 140 pound-feet of torque at 3200 rpm. It comes with a manual 5-speed and optional 3-speed automatic. Optional for the SE is a dual-overhead-cam Quad 4, producing 160 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 155 pound-feet of torque at 5200 rpm. The automatic is the only gearbox provided. The Grand Am GT comes standard with a High-Output, double-overhead-cam version of the Quad 4. It pumps out 180 at 6200 rpm and 160 pound-feet of torque at 5200 rpm. Engineering changes for '93 result in all three 4-cylinder engines loosing five 5 horsepower. Optional for both the SE and GT versions is a new V6 powertrain. Paired with a 3-speed automatic, GM's 3.3-liter V6 is the first to appear under the hood of a Grand Am since 1987. It delivers 160 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 185 pound-feet of torque at 2000 rpm. A 4-speed automatic arrives for '94, along with a smaller 3.1-liter V6 replacing the 3.3-liter unit. It generates 155 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 185 pound-feet of torque at 4000 rpm. A revised, 150-horsepower Quad 4 with balance shafts arrives in '95, while for '96 the Quad OHC base engine is replaced with a new 2.4-liter Twin Cam. It produces 150 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 150 pounds-feet of torque at 4400 rpm. It's paired with either the standard 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic gearbox.

Front Impact, Driver 5
Front Impact, Passenger 4

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests a vehicle's crashworthiness in front- and side-impact collisions and rates its resistance to rollovers. Front-impact crash-test numbers indicate the chance of serious injury: 5 = 10% or less; 4 = 10-20%; 3 = 20-35%; 2 = 35-45%; 1 = More than 45%. Side-impact crash-test numbers indicate: 5 = 5% or less; 4 = 6-10%; 3 = 11-20%; 2 = 21-25%; 1 = More than 26%. Rollover resistance numbers indicate the chance for rollover when the vehicle leaves the roadway: 5 = Less than 10%; 4 = 10-20%; 3 = 20-30%; 2 = 30-40%; 1 = More than 40%.
