Excellent Car!
By john_y on


2001 Pontiac Sunfire SE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Got this car at 120,000 and now is at 150,000 and running stronger than ever!
Beastly in all weather, I can get through a foot of snow without a problem and with good handling too.
Decent gas mileage (24-27 mpg).
Only ever need to perform minor repairs (exhaust, shocks, oil changes, spark plugs).
Ice cold A/C, and engine warms up quickly on those cold days. When I got it the two lowest fan blower settings didn't work, but easily fixed by replacing blower motor resistor.
Roomy trunk, I can fit a Tuba in it with a bit of room to spare. Not the fastest car in the world (could only get it up to 105) but it gets you where you need to go. Comfortable seats for road trips.

Best Features

Roomy Trunk, Cold A/C, Great Handling in Snow, Cheap, No Major Repair Problems

Worst Features

Trunk Latch so you don't need the key every time you want to open the trunk, More Cigarette Lighter Power Outlets (or at least placing of the one that's there)
