1986 Pontiac Firebird 2.8L V6 from North America
A sporty gem, this one's a triumph during warmer weather
When I purchased the car the odometer and speedometer were not functioning. Therefore it remains at 130,000 miles.
The headlight motor blew out, so the lids are constantly up.
There is a tear in the driver seat. Otherwise, I find them to be quite comfortable, and all of the other seats have proven durable.
The hydraulic motors to hold up the trunk and hood do not work.
The heater is broken, however because of the temperature at which the engine runs I can heat up the inside of the car rather quickly by setting the air controls at vent.
My most recent discouragement involves a leak in the the fuel filter and lines, being the original, are made of steel.
This is a great car, when in good condition, especially for a single person or couple. The front seats are spacious, however the back is cramped.
Also, trunk space is limited.
The rear end is light, so good tires are crucial for superior handling.
The smaller aforementioned imperfections, like the headlights, can be considered an inconvenience, but do not affect the overall appeal of this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
