The left tail lights tend to build up gunk and blows out the light

2003 Pontiac Sunfire 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love to drive my sunfire because it is great on gas and for a 4 cylinder engine it has a lot of power. The sporty appearance is great and it has a roomy trunk. The sound system with cd player is awesome. The automatic transmission shifts really smoothly. Best thing about GM cars is the transmission.


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the anti lock brakes, cruise control and the new traction system is great for cornering and wet roads. I would imagine it would be really great in the snow.


Suggested Improvements

I had both of my power window motors die on the car only 6 months and 18 months of usage. Also a window washer motor went out after 1 year. Nothing else and at least nothing serious to report.

Review

I love my Sunfire! I think that it is so much cooler looking than the Honda Civics that the rest of the college kids are driving around my home. The only complaint I have is that there is too much lumbar in the seats and they cannot be adjusted! When I have to take it from TN to MI my back is killing me by the time we get there. But, it still does the trip like a charm. I only have to fill it up twice for the 10 hour drive. I also wish that it was offered with a V6 engine.


Favorite Features

The front end looks awesome. I love my XM radio and sunroof! I also really like having the window adjusters in the middle instead of on the doors!


Suggested Improvements

I really wish they would change the seats to not have so much lumbar support. It kills my back when I have to ride in it for over 6 hours. My 2000 Sunfire was the same way. I also wish it came with a V6 engine.

Review

I bought this 2003 Sunfire for my wife to use for her daily commute to work - 80 miles a day round trip. With 40,000 miles in less than two years it has run like a top the whole way. No mechanical reapirs have been necessary. It is driven 90% highway miles and gets from 31 to 33 miles to the gallon consitantly.


Favorite Features

2.2L Ecotech engine runs perfectly. Five speed manual transmission shifts easily. Fun to drive.

Review

After my 98 Neon got stolen (which is kind of weird thing to happen. Who seals Neons?) I almost had to buy this car. It's fun to drive, good accleration and alright looking exterior. I smoked my friend's Chrysler Sebring! :D I got it with Cavalier LS Sport chrome rims, which improved handling. Rear end sucks. It looks ugly (maybe if they had rear spoiler bigger and brought out a little bit more, that would help I guess)


Favorite Features

Dual exhaust, fog lights, power package, headlights.


Suggested Improvements

The numbers on speedometer need to go up at least to 140 (come on 110 mph? This car should be able to go faster even though I don't go that fast)Rear spoiler sucks! Seats are crappy, and vents are some kind of joke. Front bumper grills are missing (I've got so many tiny rocks in my radiator)
