Nickel and dimed

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Firebird Formula 2dr Hatchback

The car is overall a nice car for its time. However owning one today for me is very costly. I have more money in repairs than what the car is worth or what I paid for it and the car has under 60,000 miles. Maybe some last longer, but mine has been giving me grief ever since I owned it. Right now it is messed up and nobody has been able to figure out why. I'm tired of repairing things, and think I'm going to just sell it for a loss. I advise you to look into the reliability of these cars before purchasing. Some can last a long time, but mine has been horrible. I got to know a few mechanics well unfortunately.

Been a good car

I have owned my car for about 4 years now. So far I have added a lot of mods to make it faster and the LT1 responds very well to simple bolt ons. This car is a lot of fun to drive but can be dangerous in the rain. I would suggest you learn how to do all the repairs yourself if you intend to buy one of these cars since I consider the majority of shops to be scam artists.

I have owned this car for quite a while now. I have 164,000 miles on the original engine. Although repairs on this car are pricy, I haven't experienced many at all. I had to have the catalytic converter changed ($1,100) and the muffler. I put a flowmaster on it which really makes it sound awesome. My 5.7L V8 will still kick you back into the seat if you step on it, and delivers about 23 mpg.




This car rocks!!!!!

be careful of this car. i had a blown moter at 70000 miles. it was nothing i did to it, it was a mechanical defect. it is the most expensive car i've ever had to fix. a distributer cap on other cares cost between 10 or 20 dollars, on this car it costs over 300, and you have to take the water pump off to change it. would not recommend car, for the amount of money you will spend in repairs, you could own a lexus




Hope yours is more reliable!

Save $$ for future problems. I thought I had the cream of the crop... 94 Formula 25,000 miles on it. I thought, hmmm, low miles, must be reliable. Silly me, I should've known better. List or problems I had/have: Optispark(distributor)$400, Radiator $220, Waterpump $200, Radiator hoses $50, coolant sensor $50, o2 sensors $75, new batterie $50, countless hours of frustration and time to find and fix aallll the problems, $priceless! Not to mention electrical gremlins with the taillights and ABS unit, rear hatch and headlight motor and so on... I do keep up maintenance on it religiously.
