"I have purchased this car as my first and have took car of it completely and hope that i can upgrade to a better stereo. Although all of the stock components have made this car a good value for the type of car. I love the fact that i get 31 MPG on City and 35 MPG on Highway. LOVE IT. So if you are debating on getting this car, STOP THINKING AND BUY IT, this will be a great investment and if you take car of it this will provide you a good reliable transportation and smooth drive as well."
Cons: "Bad cup holder location (under radio), ugly"

"I've owned my Sunfire for about 5 years now. Bought it at 60k miles, and I've been driving the HECK out of it. I've put 100k miles on it since (20k per year). It may be a bit ugly on the outside, and not all that appealing on the inside, but it has the quality where it counts. Tons of power for a 4-banger, NEVER broke down on me, Still passes smog after all this time, without ever having to change a pump, cat, muffler, etc. If you're looking for a perfect starter car for a teenager, or a commuter car for long drives, this is definitely an amazing value. Never mind the fact that it gets awesome gas mileage."
"I had this car for over 5 years and have had many minor problems with it. In the first year of having this car the tail lights and fog lights would go out every few months. Then the window motor on the driver side went out, then the passenger side. The light fixture in the trunk fell down and the bulb fell out. The lights showing what gear you are in near the shifter went out also. I had to get a new cluster (speedometer, tachometer, ect...) since it went out also, not to mention a minor transmission leak. Also the A/C went out in it once. Besides all of that, i found the car great on gas, easy to see out of, comfortable on long trip, unless someone is in the back where it can be a little cramped, and fun to drive. Loved the sunroof, but after a while the rubber molding started to peel off. This is a great car for someone learning to drive."
"Best car I ever owned. Never let me down or stranded me, ran well until someone crashed into me and totalled it, when I had 140k mi. on it. Sporty looking and comfortable on long trips. GREAT on gas mileage--33 mpg always, even when I had all those miles on it. Only work done on it in 6 years of ownership was replacing the drive chain-understandable at over 125k mi. I'm looking to buy another."
