Nice looking car but engineering is weak

1999 Pontiac Sunfire SE 4dr Sedan


We paid about $13000 new. The only
option was a CD player. The main
problems were that the A/C fan went out
twice and an A/C duct kept coming apart
when we ran the fan on high. Also, the
paint job started pitting in 2001. The
hood looks like it has white dots all
over it. It also lost its original
shine. To be honest, we live in Florida
and the sun is brutal on paint. But we
kept it waxed a couple of times a year
and paint should last longer than that.
It is the dark green color. No major
problems with the motor or
transmission. The car rattles and is
very noisy.

Best Features

Very decent sound system (not the premium one), good looking car(at least when new), good gas mileage and best of all, CHEAP!

Worst Features

Use decent paint next time. Try to build something that doesn't fall apart and begin to rattle and shake after 20,000 miles.
