2003 Pontiac Sunfire 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


We bought this car new from the dealer. Since then the headlights have gone out twice under warranty, then paid +$300 to get them fixed again, now the fog lights are out (issue is in a wiring harness that keeps corroding, and even if they replace the entire harness, the same issue will happen because the harness still is built the same way - with poor wires; GM states that it is not their issue, but if you research this, just about every one of them has this problem; sounds like it should be recalled and a completely new harness designed). The fuel pump will go out about every 50k-60k miles. Now the window will not roll down. Many calls to GM's product assist/complaint line go non-returned.

Best Features

The car looks sporty, has a nice sound system, and rides good. If it wasn't for all of the problems, it would be a nice car for the price. We will never purchase another GM product because of the way GM has handle these issues with us.

Worst Features

Redesign of the wiring harness for the headlamps/fog lights for the replacement harness. GM needs to deal with customer issues better than taking the info and then not calling back, even after you keep calling back on the issue. This will only cause them to loose more customers and sales.
