1995 Pontiac Sunfire Coupe 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 Coupe 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

Review

I've owned my car since new for about 8 years. Funny to hear people with the same problem of the ventalation fan only working on high. Car has been great. No major problems until now. Need to replace the head gasket before it does damage. The only problem I've had with it besides is the air compressor needs replaced. Have 120K miles and plan to keep her for 2 or 3 more years. My friend wants her when I sell.


Best Features

Looks great. Very reliable.


Worst Features

Cup holder in a really bad place especially if you have a stick. Rear visability isn't great. GM really has to do something about their cheap head gaskets. I've heard it's very common for them to leak. Suggestion: never replace them with genuine GM.

Review

Reading some of other reviews, I have to say, other than normal wear & tear, I've clocked 130,000+ miles with only MINOR problems: fan only worked on high (broken circuit board --> EASILY fixable), leaky fuel injector --> again EASILY fixable for anyone with any mechanical sense. Just give her gas and change her oil and she just keeps on truckin'!


Best Features

30+ MPG, you can't beat it.


Worst Features

Sucks about 1 quart of oil between changes. Resale value is none-existant.
