1990 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought it with only 33,000 miles on it and it has been great so far. It is very cute and comfortable. It looks small but the inside is pretty big and spacious. There is one thing that I noticed which was the acceleration. It takes a while to accelerate. That doesn't bother me though. The fact that there are only 2 settings for the windshield wipers is a little annoying at times too. That is not a big deal though. Love this car!! :)

1990 Pontiac Sunbird LE 2dr Convertible


Review

Picked up this car on the cheap for driving down to the lake and back with my buddy. It had been sitting for 4 months so we knew it would take some to get it back up to speed. Typical stuff; Changed fluids, head gasket, fixed the brake lines, new stereo and cosmetic work later it has become a good car for us.
The top works great, everything electric works for being such an old car, and we get 30 mpg in the old 2.0 4 cyl with the automatic. It's nothing special, but its gets the job done.
If you take care of this car, it will take care of you.


Best Features

Convertible top, great mpg, $35 to fill a tank at $3.30 a gallon, rides well for an old compact, fun car, good value if you can get it for the right price, it fits me well and I'm 6'4"


Worst Features

Get cruise control, back seat is one person only, fit and finish is an after thought,

1990 Pontiac Sunbird LE 4dr Sedan


Review

I finally retired my old Sunbird at 237,000 miles. I really appreciated how good a car it was when I tried to replace it and couldn't. There is simply nothing comparable out there. Pontiac directed me to Chevy who tried to sell me a Cobalt. Real piece of junk in comparison. It is 1000 pounds heavier, has a bigger engine (not necessary) and doesn't ride as well. Fuel economy is advertised much less. (I got over 36 MPG on my Sunbird (5- speed) until about 3 years ago; I'm sure my compression was bad at the end.) Finally bought a Hyundai Elantra, but it doesn't ride as well, has a smaller trunk, and takes up more space in my crowded garage.


Best Features

"Big car" ride and trunk space and "Small car" economy and overall size.


Worst Features

GM, please start making them again!

Review

A fun car to drive. Pretty good on gas - haven't had to do many repairs in the 15 years I've been driving it. I am just now thinking of replacing the engine because of high mileage.


Best Features

Convertible top handling.
