Good car

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

I got this car at an auction and it had over 140,000 miles on it. it ran great! is a great car for the money. the trans is giving me problems now but i got this car for $275. I've had some brake problems but i got a good guy to work on it. as long as you put the work in, it'll treat you right.




The best car i ever

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

I bought this car when i was a kid it was the best thing i ever did. This car was awesome. In the end it had some electrical problems but no matter what it always ran great. I never in the 8 years that i owned it did i put more than $1000.00 into it, including normal maintenance. It was absolutely great in the winter. Eventually i bought a grand prix for more room. I will always regret giving up the best car i owned to my husband to derby, but it took 3rd place. Overall i absolutely loved this car. The electrical problems i had were the abs system, the heater switch which was ran by a switch under my dash. Overall if you can find a sunbird in good condition buy it.




My first car

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

My sunbird has since died but for the 7 or so months I had it it was my pride and joy. It was a 5 spd manual which made it lots of fun, with a 3.1 v6. Not much power. Anyway the thing did burnouts like no other. I only had a few problems like the clutch going (my bad) and the alternator. In the last few months it got probably twenty to the gallon but before that it got 30 to 35. This car was my second life




Looks good, runs horrible

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

When i received this car, it had 73K miles on it. Over the four years i had it, i replaced the engine TWICE, the heater core three times, heater hoses every month, and replaced the manifold system three times. Another problem I had was that it over heated every other day in a Pennsylvanian summer. The interior dash separated from the radio set-up but aside from that, the interior was fine. It handled well and the frame was like a rock but it was everything under the hood that caused problems.




Still awesome @ 140k miles!!

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

I purchased my fully loaded Sunbird SE 3.1L-v6 in '96 when it had 30k miles. It now has 140k miles and it's been an awesome car. I get awesome acceleration from stoplights and for passing; car also has a very smooth ride and great handling. Overall, this little car has been very good to me. So good to me that when I went looking for another car a couple of years ago, I ended up keeping my Sunbird because nothing else performed as well. The name of the game, boys and girls, is maintenance. Keep up with your oil changes and transmission fluid changes and the other basic maintenance and chances are high your vehicle will do well.




Fun little car, bad little

Vehicle: 1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Coupe

I bought the car with 74K miles on it, so I expected some problems, but the seller assured me that she'd taken good care of it. Yeah right! First month the alternator, then the valve gasket, TWICE! then the brakes, (disks and rotors), then a bunch of hoses, the temp sensor, and gauge, and finally the radiator. All this within 6 months and 6,000 miles, finally the it would just quit in the middle of the highway, I'd wait 5-10 minutes, then I'd start it back up and it go for a bit longer, the mechanic told me to stop using the a/c so I did all summer and died of heat. I finally sold it for $2300 with 87K miles.
