6: Pontiac Grand Am
In the mid-’90s, the Grand Am was a bit of an oddball, incorporating a shrunken design and a lack of power. The car didn’t seem much bigger than a Chevy Cavalier at the time, yet it was was competing with the Camry. The usual Pontiac treatments were evident on this car from the oversized body cladding to the boy racer image.
The Grand Am from this generation sold quite well and thus there are a lot of them still on the road. But drivers are tired of seeing them and it’s time for this generation of the Grand Am to say bye. Pontiac has since died off and the Grand Am is an example of what to do wrong with a storied car brand.
