96 sunfire died a few times still running
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
Saved my daughter's life
We purchased this car for our daughter. Little did we know it would save her life. She was hit "head-on" by a drunk driver. The driver of the other car was in a Nissan Sentra and was killed in the crash. My daughter received only minor injuries. The investigating officer told us the car save her life because the front end of the car "dropped" which allowed the car to bow upward instead of into the driver/passenger area. Also, both airbags deployed and her seatbelts worked just as they should. We are planning to replace the car with another one just like it. My daughter says she won't drive anything else!
Amazing reliability
My wife and I have had our Sunfire for 6 years and have put over 150,000 miles on it. The vehicle has averaged 30mpg in rual hilly areas with the 3 spd automatic. Which is better than the sticker said. In all the miles with rough weather and gravel roads we have never had a single mechanical problem. The only complaint that I have about he vehicle is the lack of a decent cupholder in the front seat and the vehicle is a shade cramped for a large man like myself (6' 260lbs). I dno't think a normal size person would have any trouble at all. I recommend the sunfire to everyone I know looking for a small car.
