My dad first purchased the Sunfire new in 2003 as a 2nd vehicle to commute to work.
He got it with all the bells and whistles (which only is power windows, A/C, sunroof, monsoon sound system, dual exhaust and spoiler) for only $13,000!
I ended up taking the car off his hands and it has NEVER failed me.
120k mile and I have never ever had one problem with it.
Of course I keep up with oil changes, tires, brakes and the like.
The car still looks current and modern and it does perform well for only having 140 horses!
Fun to drive, great value, good on gas.
more power, comfort and more manly.
But, hey.. its a cheap commuter car.
