1991 Pontiac Firefly Sport 1.0 3 cylinder
Small car, big ideas
Nothing at all, this car has been wonderful.
I have only had the oil and transmission fluid changed out; everything else has been just excellent, no problems at all.
I bought this car not long ago because I had a '94 Suzuki Swift 5 speed, and that was such a trouble free car I decided to try a 3 cylinder Firefly, and nothing has changed, this Firefly is just as good as the Swift.
This car is in excellent shape and is one of the best looking ones around here. I changed the transmission fluid just today, and the car is running great and getting around 43-46 MPG city, and over 50 MPG on the highway. These are just great little cars; very easy to service, maintain and work on, and though they are small cheaper cars, they never give much trouble at all. My car has new 12" tires and the car handles great in any condition.
The interior is actually very roomy, even when holding four people. The rear seats fold down, making the car able to hold and haul almost anything.
Overall I'm VERY happy with this little car's performance, and plan on getting another after this one, I may try an automatic version next.
Overall these cars are just great, and I advise anyone wanting a cheap, reliable, great on gas car, to get one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These are awesome cars, way ahead of their time in technology! They get better mileage than a Smart car, cost a fraction of the price, and can actually seat 4 people, plus they have a hatchback!

Yeah it's a funny thing - all the so-called 'technological advances' since 1990 haven't actually improved anything - just made things more expensive and complicated (and thus likely to break down with age).
