I bought my 95 Sunfire (used) when it
was 2 years old. It has given me a
really good run since then but a week
ago the engine went out. One thing
the mechanic told me is to beware of
the smallest coolant leak because if
not caught early it can ruin the
engine. My car gave me 118,000 miles
before it broke down but the mechanic
did mention that many of the Sunfire's
he had worked on went out at 75,000
miles. A good car, but beware once
you get into those higher miles.
Nothing, and I mean nothing has gone
right with this car. I cannot express
how angry it has made me. I have
replaced, drivers seat twice, head
gasket twice, head, driving lights,
alternator, driverside door, the horn
doesn't work, the rear window defogger
needed fixing. All this and no
accidents to cause any of it.Both front
wheel mounts need to be replaced, the
main gasket for the oil needs
replacing. There is a short in the
electrical system that causes the abs
warning light to come on if the four
ways are turned on. All in all I want
to repaint this car yellow and put a
stem on the hood so everyone can see
THE LEMON IT IS!!!!!
favorite feature: it will die soon and
i can get another vehicle. DIE DIE DIE!!
Jack up the rad cap and screw a new car
I have spent a fortune in repairs for
this vehicle. I have sworn off
Pontiac for the rest of my life!
Everything from the air conditioning,
transmission and engine has had major
problems. Thank goodness I had an
extended warrenty. I am now trading
it in for a Toyota and I am confident
I will not be taking it in for every
repair under the sun. My engine is
now losing pressure and will need to
be overhauled....need I say more?!?!
Excellent gas milage and a pretty good
More horsepower, this car had no
strengtt whatsoever. The seats are
I bought my '95 Sunfire new in June 95. The car now has 100K miles and is still going stong. No major repairs EVER. This has been a great car fo my wife for 6 years, then I got it. Now I will reluctantly sell the Sunfire. Oil, and tires are the only things that wear out. It has developed a small oil leak. I haven't heard many raves about this car, but I have to say that GM really did a lot of things right. The car is consistent, and affordable.
Would of have been nice to have more power, but not really required.
I've had my sunfire for 7 years and
it's been a decent car. The major
problem has been the transmission. I'm
on my 3rd one and only have 86000 miles
on it. I am not hard on cars, and have
done a great deal of highway driving in
the car. Other problems have been
pretty standard. I like the gas
mileage and it has been a cute, zippy
car for a single gal. Now with a
husband and baby though, we're ready
for a minivan. I wish the car had
power windows, locks, but for a basic
small car there is tons of room when
the rear seat folds down. Got lots of
stuff to and from college in it.
gas mileage, cute sporty look, lots of
cargo room when back seat is down
power locks, windows. More comfortable
rear seats. More reliable transmission.
