Bought this car used with around 30k miles on it. I added 17" wheels and high performance tires which greatly helped handling. Overall this has been a good car with only two major problems thus far: At 62k miles I had to replace the fuel pump and computer. Was told that the bad computer attributed to the fuel pump problem. Total cost to repair was $480 (Would have been more but thankfully I have connections). I average around 28 mpg which isn't bad for an automatic. This car seems to still have that "hip appeal" because all of my son's teenage friends like it and my son wants this to be his first car. He'll probably get his wish in a couple years!!

This car is the best purchase I've made in a long while. Everything about it screams comfort and fun. It hugs curves like no other and is always up for a little bit of free running. It really shines in the country on twisty roads, but it's great for the city too. Awesome fuel economy. I get around for weeks on one tank of gas. I would recommend this car to any parent looking to get their kid a reliable, safe, but fun car in order to get them through college.

This has been a fine vehicle, doing what I bought it to do. I am also customizing/ pinstriping it, body wise; installed a catback exhaust, KN air intake and getting the GM Supercharger in the next month or so to soup it to 200hp. Had a problem finding a dealer to install it. I enjoy the roof and the stereo/CD is fine. I am tall and leg room is very good. It is a fun car to drive as well as economical.

I love this car... if you know how to drive and use a stick I can cruise past BMWs or Lexus's like they were standing still. People complain of body roll but if you're smart and dont take an inside lane you're fine... besides when you roll up in alloys and tints you dont need an $80,000 car to get the girls

I enjoyed cruising on the freeway in it
and driving around the city.The sound
system was excellent, but a few things
needed to be changed.The exterior paint
was crap.The handling was probably the
largest downfall expecting tight
corners and confident
upredictable feed back at high speeds
and body roll at low.The engine made
the car quick and fun to drive, but
handling almost got me in the end.I was
driving at high speeds around an over
pass and hit a bumb in the road that,
sent the unsure rearend out to the side
of me and I lost control.My passenger
and I flew off the edge of the turn.We
survived, but the car had poor

I wanted a small compact car that I
felt had exceptional styling over the
Pontiac has in my opinion the best
looking sub-compact going in the
sunfire, the engine is easily as good
or better than most of the current crop
form japan, The ecotec 16v dohc, is
It's to bad that kids don't take a
second look at these for tunning as
they are great for just that.
Yes, the overall fit and finish may not
be up to the higher end from Japan, but
in reality it's just not that bad, I
have zero squeaks after 5000 miles.
The GT is an exceptional value !
