"I've owned my Sunfire for a little under two years, and can easily say I've spent close to $3,000 on repairs for this thing. The car is quick for a 4 cylinder, and handles fairly well, making it a very fun car to drive. Also gets fabulous gas mileage if you drive under 2500 RPMs. However, no amount of fun can make up for the issues I've had with this car. From tranny problems, to electrical issues, to the doors not closing because they are too heavy for their hinges to hold, this car has been a consistent headache for me. The car has alot of odd things that will make you mad, and some odd things you'll enjoy. For instance, the cup holders are located directly in front of the climate control, so you can't change the temperature if you have a drink there. On the other hand, the glove box is enormous, which often comes in handy. I haven't had any major issues in the past few months; except all types of bad noises coming from all over."

"Never had a car run this good for so long. This has outlasted two Hondas (Civic & Accord) so I don't know why those are considered so great for reliability. The Sunfire is all original and shows no sign of giving up anytime soon."
