It is a great car. I will keep it for as long as possible!


The alternator has been changed 2 times.

The radiator once started to leak (about 2 years ago) and I had it replaced.

The fan has also been replaced 2 times.

General Comments:

This car has never let me down. It is very reliable. Where I live I travel some 30 miles daily to my office. The weather is always scorching hot, there are always traffic jams, and I travel quite confidently in my '93 Sunbird.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1994 Pontiac Sunbird LE, and I have to say it is a very reliable car, and I wish that they still made the same ones, because I would definitely buy another one. I definitely recommend it as a used purchase to anyone.

I own a 1993 Sunbird LE. It is a good little car with only 64,000 miles on it, but the only problems I have with it are that the dome light is duct taped to the ceiling and one of the wires is cut so the doesn't even work. Also if the car gets up to 60mph, it starts to shake. But if Pontiac still made Sunbirds, I would most likely buy one brand new. This is my first car and I have had it less than a year. It gets up and goes pretty well for a 4 cylinder. I like how simple yet comfortable it is.
