Car started having problems 3 months after purchase. It had 28,000 miles on it when bought and by 40,000 miles it needed a new tranny and had a blown head gasket. The interior was poorly designed as it was constantly coming apart. Driving was fair at best with a 2.0 4 cyl engine that had no power and it had very uncomfortable seats.

Bought it with 16K mi in near perfect
condition. Sideswiped in an accident,
and it was never the same again. After
a series of inept body and engine
mechanics, 60K miles, and the accident,
it's so-so. Body is still fine.
Engine, with the proper plugs, is
pretty good. Before the accident, I
LOVED it!!! Except for the seats. Not
too comfortable for long
drives. Okay for highway driving,
otherwise mileage isn't great, but it's
pretty heavy. OTOH, if it weren't
heavy, I'd probably be dead. My big
lesson - find a GOOD mechanic. One
that doesn't know what he's doing will
ruin your engine.

I purchased my Sunbird new in 1992.
This car was primarily driven to and
from my place of work in heavy traffic
conditions. It's fuel injected four
cylinder engine coupled with a five
speed manual transmission provided
plenty of power and made driving fun.
I replaced the altenator on two
occassions and the timing belt once.
I still own this vehicle after eleven
years of solid service. It still gets
great gas mileage and looks great.

Does anyone know the horsepower in
the '92 Pontiac Sunbird with the V6,
3.1L? I am trying to compare the new
(2002) Pontiac Sunfires ecotech engine
(4 cylinder, 2.2L 140 horsepower) with
my Pontiac Sunbird with a V6, 3.1L
Thanks a bunch!

This has been the most unreliable I
have ever owned. The thing shakes,
rattles and groans. Always ahs
something that needs to be fixed. But,
when I put the top down, all is
forgiven. Ride is horrible and power
is low for a V-6. Seats are
