1995 Pontiac Sunfire SE 4dr Sedan


Review

I see a lot of poor reviews about this car, and I can understand why. Personally, I love this car but have had other similar Pontiacs that were terrible. The only major money spent on this car was $1000 because there was rust in the gas tank. Other than that, I add oil once every 4 months and just let it burn off. I bought it for $1000 and planned on just running it into the dirt while I saved for a new one but it is still here. Somehow it is still running strong with no major problems :)


Best Features

Super reliable as long as you are satisfied with only basics (which I am)

1995 Pontiac Sunfire SE 2dr Coupe


Review

I was given this car for my 16th birthday in 2005. Since then, I've had a few problems, all of which seem to have happened to others (head gasket, alternator, fuel pump, heat only working on high, AC compressors broken). Also, the starter is starting to go. But, i like the sporty design and have a lot of fun driving it.


Best Features

I like the sporty profile, and as i saw another person write, how the front looks like its smiling at you. The gas mileage is definitely a plus, and it is fun to drive, in nice or bad weather.


Worst Features

CUP HOLDERS. there are no cup holders in the front, i took out the ashtray and use that as a cup holder. Also, when men sit in the back they hit their heads on the rear window, no matter how they sit.

1995 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2dr Coupe


Review

This car has been great for what it
is. The performance is good (for a
small sporty coupe). In 166K miles,
other than reg maintenence items, I've
replaced the crank sensor, water pump
and AC compressor. Not bad for a $15k
car. It is easy to work on and the
2.3L engine and 5-speed have been rock-
solid. I still get compliments on how
good the car looks and people can't
believe it's a 95 with almost 170k
miles. I've driven the car pretty
hard, changing the oil every 3000
miles and doing scheduled
maintenence. Other than the above
mentioned items, I've had great luck
with it.


Best Features

The looks of the car. It turns heads still (really).


Worst Features

The seats could be more supportive and the cup holder does suck (especially with a 5-speed). I usually use the one in the back seat (rear of console).

Review

Hi, I've had my car since May '95, I
waited 6 months for it, and it was worth
the wait. Right now the head gasket is
seeping, I'm keeping a close eye on it,
so far it has not made it to the
pavement. I had to have all three motor
mounts (very expensive) replaced, and
the alternator. The s-belt broke
shortly after I bought it, a fluke I was
told. No other trouble. I used a gas
treatment and went 440 on 13 gallons,
most times I can go 400 on a tank. I
live in the mountains and it holds its
own going up hills. It's my Pegasus.


Best Features

sporty looking car, if you look at the front it seems to smile at you, like the map lights, gas mileage, still runs good


Worst Features

rear visability, gas filter a pain to change, cup holder too small
