Should have bought something else...

by
Mar 13, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: Good on gas, looked good, spacious interior/trunk. Folding seat in the back.
Cons: Huge repair bills. Bad interior design. No power windows. Rusts out fast.
The Bottom Line: I would never buy another Sunfire. They were thrown together with cheap parts and a bad design.

I throughly researched this car before I bought it two years ago and at that time, there seemed to be only minor problems with it. A few people had written reviews to state that the car made cracking and popping sounds...not the engine but the interior. ... read more

Unbelievably safe in an accident

by
Dec 31, 2003 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fun, safe, sporty
Cons: After 150,000 miles, interior started to get a little noisy.
The Bottom Line: Any engine problems were covered 100% by the dealership, even beyond the warranty. I wish I still had this car!

I loved my 1995 Sunfire! After much cajolling, I bought a different car and passed this one down to my daughter who was going away to college. After about 9 months of driving it, she was in a horrific accident - flipped the car end over end, landing ... read more

My lil' Sunfire

by
Apr 24, 2003 - Updated May 13, 2003 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: cute sporty little car, great acceleration for a 4 cyl. priced to buy
Cons: easily destructible!
The Bottom Line: I think it's a good car in the end because it's priced right for today's average income, it looks good, and the gas mileage is right!

Back in '95 when I got this car I was so excited. Such a cool looking little car and everybody wanted one. The car handles exceptionally well, and has great gas mileage. I can drive 265 highway miles without worrying about filling up the tank. ... read more

Pros: This 1995 Pontiac Sunfire car is a good-looking car, and has a nice console design.

When I purchased this used 1995 Pontiac Sunfire car, it had several problems. Whenever I would brake, the car would jump and skid forward. There was a continuous knocking sound in the front of the car. In addition, the air conditioner failed to work. ... read more

Pros: sporty appearance, cost is reasonable, good mpg
Cons: The service Pontiac offers on the car, problems near 100,000 mile mark

I bought this car the first year it came out, and although I love the look of it, the service record has gone downhill. This is a 95 so hopefully Pontiac has realized there were some problems with the car and have corrected them in subsequent years. At ... read more
