I love my Sunbird

This car was my first, so that I could commute to college. I bought it in 2003 with 77,000 miles on it, and it still runs great. I like how roomy the driver's seat is, because I am a tall woman, and I sometimes feel cramped in small cars. It has never not started up for me, even in the below 0 Illinois winters. Very reliable car. The engine runs a little rough, but every mechanic that has looked at it says that it's in good condition. I had to have a valve job done on it, but that's to be expected with age. I would probably keep driving it for a a few more years, if I hadn't been rear-ended, smashing in the trunk. Insurance called it a total. I was kept safe, though, so that's a plus.

Purchased the car with 11,000 miles on it. One person driver in the 14 years I have owned the car. One wreck hit from the back by a van. The car was not totaled. Repaired very little damage for the size of the car compared to the size of the van that hit the care. Hit from the side not very hard damaged the door. Repair service could not find a door but did some repair. The total miles 130,000.I love the car and would drive it until it fell apart. Has excellent hear and air. Drives wonderful in bad weather.

2.0l automatic 1st gear at 44 mph. 2nd at 80 mph, and in 3rd flies. I run vs modern 2.0l cars and wins, only with 2 valves per cylinder. Good comfort ride at circuit and mpg. Fun to drive, good a/c. My best car.

Unreliable Junk

I received this car for free or else I would have never bought it. Used for about 7 months - did ok. Driving through the mountains it sounded like it was dying but it got me where I needed to be. Gas mileage OK, not great. I had it sit for about a year and it got filled with water - something was leaking had to tear out the trunk material. Next year the alternator broke, battery replaced, starter replaced, serpentine belt broke, brakes replaced, and finally the tranny is going at 223000 km. Would never buy a pontiac again.

I have had my Sunbird since 1995. Only 78,000 miles on it. Rusting out inside the doors and dash is staring to separate from frame (possibly from heat exposure). No major problems, just general maintenance with age, hoses, belts, etc. Did replace raditor but that was due to a rock. Had one problem under warranty with power window motor.
