Couldn't buy this car from

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Hatchback

This is by far the best and most fun car Ive driven. I've added K&N air intake and flowmaster exhaust, tinted the windows extremely dark, and added chrome rims and performance tires. Just added a top notch sound system, replaced everything, and I couldn't be happier with the car. It may have a TMV of $2300, or whatever, but there is no way I'd sell it for triple that. I would drive this car every mile for the rest of my life if I could, unfortunately there is no car that lasts that long.




Great car

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Hatchback

Bought the car 5 years ago with 50k miles. Now has 120k. No major problems during that time - just a bad alternator and a water pump that I replaced. The only real maintenance I've done is change the oil every 5k miles with mobil1 synthetic. The clutch feels like it's finally wearing out and I'll probably need to replace it soon. The 3.4L v6 (160hp) isn't exactly fast, but isn't slow either. Seems just as fast as when I first drove it. Great car and seems like it will last up to 200k miles with no real problems. Gets gas mileage around 19mpg city and 30mpg on long trips.

great car, only had a few problems with it, but nothing to complain about with a 10 year old car. I can throw it around beat it up and it will still run like a charm. Only problem is that it eats gas, but the tourq will throw you in the back of your seat




A great car!

The Firebird I have has never give me any trouble. However I recently reached the 112,000 mile mark... and it is in the shop. It ran good for 112K miles!




An awesome car!!

I have been driving my firebird since I purchased it in May 1996. It now has 178,000 miles and is STILL going strong. This car has never broken down on me. It is by far the most reliable vehicle I have ever driven. While my friends have cars for 2 months and they break down, my has never failed me. The interior is perfect for short people like myself (5'4)-you never have to take your eyes off the road to change the radio station/air controls. Best of all, my firebird now gets 28 miles to the gallon!!! Fantastic car!! I am looking for another one to buy!!
