This car is great fun to drive, but it seems like every time I would go for a rode trip it would break down. At 195,000 km I've gone through 5 alternators, 3 starters, 2 set's of shocks, a water pump and many other things are just falling apart.
I loved everything about this car. If I could have kept it I would have, but it was slowly falling apart, such as the vinyl. But certainly something to not complaint about considering it's very sporty design (interior/exterior), terrific dependility, the best fuel mileage (upwards to 48 mpg) I thought it was comfy until I drove my second car, a BMW 5 series. Even though I didn't 'need' my Sunbird, I kept it because of the great gas mileage and total efficiency. It was totally fun to drive when I go it eons ago, and still very fun to drive up til I gave it away.
It's an overall great car. If I could actually afford to fix the couple of problems with it, I would be able to keep it for a long time. But how things are going now, it seems like be searhing for a new car in a few years.
I met my wife that time she had that car. I used this car driven daily. I currently have 181,000 miles on it. common maintenace, replace waterpump and timing belt twice in same year. interior design was good, but there's a flaw on igniton, gets stuck, would not able to take key out. at 174k short on wiring to wipers and headlight, when lights turned on, wiper washer goes off. interior light stop working, but overall itis reliable, as long taking care of it, change oil, etc.
