good dependable car

Two of my daughters, sequentially, have used this car to get back and forth from college on week ends, and travel while there. It has been a very reliable car, gets great gas mileage, and runs as strong today as when we purchased it back in 2003 (we purchased from the original owner).


Great car for the money

This is a the second Sunfire we've owned. This one being a convertible with the larger more powerful 2.4 liter engine which is a great performer. We like the body style, but would like a bigger opening to the trunk. The convertible top suprisingly doesn't limit visiblilty very much. The rear seats fold down which comes in very handy when we've needed to transport some large items from the store to home. Overall this is a relatively good handling and very economical car. It gets good gas mileage, usually between 25 - 30 MPG.


Just... a car.

Nothing outstanding about it. I've had my sunfire for a year now. I've put 40,000 miles on it in a year, taking it on several long (760mile one way) trips and back home, does fair on the highway with gas mileage. Mine has an issue with rear brake drums and problems with the engine block. Now it's sitting at 172,500 miles and it's getting to be way more of a hassle than its worth. Good while new, but anything over 100,000 put your money elsewhere.
