I bought my 1998 Sunfire in 2000.
I have been driving it ever since.
It is an awesome little car and I will be sad to replace it this year.
I am only replacing it because my teenagers cannot sit facing forward due to the lack of leg room.
We have not had many problems with it at all.
The most extensive repair was the timing. This is an awesome car for someone on a budget.
The repairs are very inexpensive (some of which with basic knowledge and a repair manual can be done by the owner).
Great little car for the money. Pontiac really hit a winner with this peppy convertible. Car looks better with the top down, and for "tall" people- top down is the best! No major mechanical work in 90,000 miles.
I love my car. I have had minimal
problems and maximum fun. She handles
well in rain and snow. She is zippy,
gives me good gas mileage and seems to
be very reliable. The only complaint I
have is when it is raining outside, if
you roll down the window you are going
to get wet! I wish they would have had
a better design so you could crack open
the window(s) and not get dripped on.
Oh yeah, also one other thing, there is
no place to put a drink. But these
aside, I love my car!
I'm one that gets tired of a car after
2 or 3 years. But with this one I can't
seem to let it go. Although the roof
leaks and makes it stink after the rain.
I enjoy driving roof up or down in
beautiful northern CA. I agree it's
dificult to see out the back when the
roof is up. But it's been a reliable
car for me since 1998.
