Review of the 2004 Pontiac Sunfire

  • Despite a peppy engine and a few cool options, this nearly decade-old economy coupe is outclassed by newer competitors. Shop elsewhere.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Low price, torquey four-cylinder engine, optional satellite radio and OnStar.

  • Cons

    Ancient design inside and out, cheap interior materials, poor build quality, low resale value, poor side-impact and front-offset crash test results.

I'm having doubts

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Sunfire 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

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.




Best car i've ever owed!

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Sunfire 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

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.




Want it back

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Sunfire 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

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.

Sunfire is indeed still around though I think it's dead in 2004....
