Sammi's car is just horrible. It has bad crash ratings and many defects.Some good things about the car were limited. Alexa's car was of the year 2010, which was newer than Sammi's Pontiac,it had fewer recalls, defects, and had higher crash ratings.

Conclusion of the Presentation:

Based on the information, you will have many difficulties with the Pontiac Grand Am due to the vast amount of complaints. I would recommend purchasing the 2010 Mini Cooper, for a safer experience, but the car itself is expensive. URL and the date
