Pros: Handles great, front seat comfortable, "cute", great gas mileage
Cons: Backseat very small
I bought this car after graduating college in April '97 with just 9 miles on it. We have never had any problems with this car. I have always enjoyed driving it because of the way it handles and it's smooth ride. The front seats are very comfortable. Other than regular type maintanence (oil changed, tires, belt & battery replacement) we have never had any major mechanical work.
After I got pregnant we decided we needed a more "family-style" sedan with more of a backseat so my husband (who also had a small car) took the Sunfire and I got a nice, family-friendly Buick.
The car is still going strong and we have no intention of getting rid of it any time soon.
