"The car rattles when windows are down, the radio is poorly done, the trip reading never resets, the engine cooling system water pump is hard to repair, and the auto transmission fluid level can only be checked by a mechanic (no dip stick), etc. It is working as a good car for the kids to use, would not have it as a main use car. Has been sort of reliable though, just waiting for the other foot to drop on maintaining it."

"This is my first car ever and I got it 4 years ago and its still in working condition. I live in WI and it can handle slick roads fairly well, which is important. Miles are extremely high since it was a traveling car for the previous owner and I rack on about 50 a day with commute. It is smaller, so it is not a car for taller people as I am 5'2 and fit perfectly whereas my boyfriend 6ft struggles a little bit. In the recently years things have began to go on it, such as brakes, battery, just little things you can expect with so many miles. This car is so tough it went 2yrs with out an oil change(not recommended but I was a stupid teen) and still ran beautifully. I would definitely buy this car, it has a little "kick" you wouldn't expect it to have. Just now the computer is getting messed up, and its time to retire my favorite and only car."

Great car that might just run forever.

"I have owned this car for the past 13 years. I have put over 240000 miles on it and out side of normal maintains have only had one issue. At around 170000 mile mark it blew a spark plug out of the #3 cylinder. $150 for a shop to helicoil in. I have replaced brakes multi times, starter once, alternator twice, but am still on the original clutch. I get between 32 - 36 mpg. Have Loved my Sunfire!"

New Tires, just forgot to put the caps back on, I though it looked cool.

"There overall small cars, but this thing is a tank. But there hard to work on because there so compacted, need small hands."

"I have owned this car for a lot of years now and have had little to no problems. My husband has gone through two cars and a truck - having had minor to major repairs - but my little Sunfire is still ruling the roads! Too bad such a good, reliable car has been discontinued. I will just have to drive this one until it won't drive anymore. Finding a coupe is nearly impossible these days also."
