1993 Pontiac Sunbird SE 2dr Convertible


I've had this car since I was 16 and am now about to turn 25. It's great during the summers and okay during the winters. 3.1 L V6 engine still runs great with 180,000 miles, as does transmission (knock on wood). As with all conv. tops, have had to replace this one twice due to rips in seams, but I also constantly take it up and down during the summer. This has really been a great car and would be a great car for any kid who doesn't have the money, but loves to drive with the top down.

Best Features

convertible, V6 engine, reliability, enough space in the trunk for golf clubs, books, and anything else a college kid needs

Worst Features

Before you even think about taking this car out, make sure the alternator has a lifetime warranty. I went through 8 in 2 years before finally breaking down and paying the extra 200 for the lifetime warranty. Still going strong 7 years later. The V6 is notorius for bad alt's.
