To me, it is better to say Grammatical instead of Grammar Mistakes. It has to do whith my judge. Grammar is a noun and Grammatical is an adjective. Nevertheless, it is okay to say Grammar Mistakes

***** NOT A TEACHER *****

Hello, Kowgirl.

(1) I think that some people say that the "correct" term is:

grammar mistakes.

(a) These people say that "grammatical mistakes" is

"wrong" because -- they say --

How can a mistake be grammatical? That is, how can

a mistake be correct?

(i) The adjective "grammatical" means something like "following

the correct rules of grammar."

So these people ask: how can a mistake follow the rules of grammar?

***** Thank you *****

P. S. Of course, if you say "grammatical mistakes," everyone knows

what you mean, and I guess most native speakers don't care which

word you use. Personally, I prefer "grammar."

. . . I guess most native speakers don't care which

word you use.

I was just about to say the same thing.

Personally, I prefer grammatical mistakes.
