1996 Pontiac Sunfire SE 4dr Sedan


i bought this car a month ago from my uncle he works on cars all the time he is not a mechanic but he is just as good as one. anyways the 1st day i got this car it died on me it would not start but the lights and the radio still worked (weird) and it had plenty of gas (half a tank) in it so i took it to cole muffler and they charged me about $400 just for a new starter and a new battery i got ripped off don't go to cole muffler they are (expensive) i only paid $850 for the car itself but i had to pay! $400 to get it running again and a week later it died on me again but after having it towed to cole muffler (again) it started without having any repairs done on it it has been over 2 weeks now

Best Features

i like the way the headlights look and i like the way it takes off quick for a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder engine.

Worst Features

i hate the one single cup holder where is my passenger in the front supposed to put their drink? and i hate the fact there is no power windows and no power locks and i really hate the horn you can hardly hear it thats (dangerous) in traffic i want to get a louder horn soon.
