I have read a lot of good reviews about this car. I found one for sale with very low mileage, only 70k miles. Within 2 days of buying it, the ICP went out, so I had to replace that for $230.00.
Not even a week later there was a loud knocking noice when I turned on the defroster, so now that will need replaced too.
I know when you buy a used car, you take a risk, but I have -never- had a car start having problems within TWO days of buying it.
It seems to drive OK, but I am having a lot of doubts about tyhe electrical system.
It does handle good on ice, but doesn't have a lot of "Get up and go" it feels sort of laggy.
It is a pretty car though, but still, I'm not impressed.

I am in search of another car due to a collision with a deer and am so disappointed because I loved both my Sunfires I have owed. My first was a 2004 yellow Sunfire and most recently at 2005 orange Sunfire. They both were always reliable, never had any problems with either one except for the CD player in my most recent. Never could get it to work properly without it wanted to eat a CD. Other than that, I LOVED both cars and wish I could find another!
** I had to select a model but both were automatic and not 5 speed but automatic was not an option to choose.

I loved my car until I got hit on the back right side. Edmunds said that it has poor side crash test mine survived the crash much better then the 08 civic. Was not the fastest car but it was decent just couldn't get me out of the crash. Edmunds also said not that fast but I beat a brand new mazda 6 with a 04 sunfire that had 4 cylinders.
I bought a Pontiac Sunfire 2004 new at the end of 2004, and am the first and only owner of the vehicle. At year 3 I noticed the clear coat was beginning to come off the top of the roof of the car (it ...
