Pontiac Grand Am's Air Vent Lets Loose, Goes Wild

April 3, 2014


This is a video of John Hickey's Pontiac Gran Am. Specifically, one of the air vents that goes nuts when you put the A/C on full blast. It's pretty mesmerizing. The sort of thing you could really get lost watching before realizing you're driving on the sidewalk. That said, this might be the first decent reason I've seen to own a Pontiac Grand Am.

Keep going for a video.

Thanks to Dunc, who took the time to tell me his Altima's air vents operate normally. Finally, I'll be able to sleep at night.

    I like the way it goes so fast it turns into a gray sphere that slowly ripples a little

    ah, that legendary GM interior quality...

    I had a '94 Grand Am where each of the vents did the exact same thing. I just stuck a dime in between the vents and the housings to keep them from spinning. If I had known I could have made a viral video based on GM's shitty design I should have done that.

    See?! Not all of the shoddy workmanship of American auto manufacturers kill you!

    we laugh now, but what happens when he leaves it running for a long drive and it flys apart into shards like this http://geekologie.com/2013/... filling his eyes with plastic shards on the interstate?

    I lost 1 minute and 42 seconds of my life watching someone malfunctioned air vent in a Gran Am. I must have been really bored

    I trying to imagine this guys living here in Québec, and the only thing I can thing of is him moaning : "I just want some heating in my car... v_v"

  • asdfadfs

    doesn't seem like it would interfere with the heat functioning, just adds some cool special effects to it and distributes it more evenly through the car
