2002 Pontiac Firebird 2dr Hatchback (3.8L 6cyl 5M)


I bought this '02 Base model (4spd automatic) Firebird with 87k miles on it and you would have sworn it was new. Even though it's just a V6, this thing still has a lot of power (205HP) stock and handles amazingly on the road at any speed. Hugs the road like no one's business. Sounds great. Super comfortable and very durable interior. Great looking exterior!
Only thing I've had to do to it was replace the fuel pump at 92k, other than that it's been great!

I paid $4,200 for this car, but after driving it, I would GLADLY pay double that for another one!

All I can say is I found the car that no matter what else I own, will always be in my driveway!

Best Features

It's so responsive and quick. SO fun to drive. Very comfortable. I love the sound (dumped cat-back).

Worst Features

All the older GM doors' hinges start to sag over time, where you have to pick up on the door to close it. I wouldn't mind a better hinge system, but that's about it out of the whole car.
