Pontiac Grand Am
results also apply to: 1999-2004 Oldsmobile Alero
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Poor
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Marginal Acceptable Good Good Marginal Poor
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
The Pontiac Grand Am was redesigned for the 1999 model year and the Oldsmobile Alero was introduced in the 1999 model year. Note: 2005 model Grand Am sedans were sold as new cars only to fleets and were discontinued altogether after the 2005 model year. The Alero was discontinued after the 2004 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled. During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door, which had bowed outward, and its head hit the window sill. Then the head moved up and back and hit the B-pillar. Plus there was too much upward movement of the steering wheel.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the neck and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the B-pillar, indicating that injuries to the head would be possible. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible. Head acceleration from the window sill hit was low.

What I have to say about the 1999 Alero: For 1999, Oldsmobile has replaced
the aged Achieva with the new Alero. Set to compete with the top dogs like
the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, stealing sales is very unlikely but
stealing sales away from the Dodge Sratus and Ford Taurus are easy. The
Oldsmobile has a very ergonomically correct interior and everything is easy
to reach and modern. The seats are very comfortable and material quality is
decent. Styling on the Alero is also a strong point with a nice curvaceous
front end that makes it stand out from other midsize sedans. All in all
great car from Oldsmobile.Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
