1996 Pontiac Sunfire Convertible SE 2dr Convertible


The 1996 Sunfire SE Convertible
equipped with the 150hp and 5spd is
such an underappreciated
sports/economy convertible. It
performs well in summer and handles
the New England winters. The power
top stays true and fit. The engine
still gives great performance for a 4
cyl/150 hp. The gas mileage remains
good at about 22/29. I wanted a car
that was fun, good styling,
convertible. My wife said
it needs 5 real seats. This one more
than fit the bill of fare. The trunk
space is also quite generous. There
are many other cars manufactured with
stylish appeal. Some better. But for
the dollars and sense of this rag top
it was just right for me.

Best Features

The continous slope line from nose to top of windshield, with top down, is something I still find great looking. A rag top that seats 5, without looking too long. Easy to raise power top without getting out of the seat. Top is up in about 12 seconds, with one handle.

Worst Features

Start making it again and keep a GT model as option. When Pontiac moved the convertible to GT only choice it got too pricy for some buyers. It's okay to sell 2 & 5 seat convertibles.
