Sports car without paying a sports car price
Needed brakes all the way around $ 518
Belt tensioner went out $ 110
Other wise just all normal maintenance.
When I bought this car last year I was under the impression that it would need a lot of work due to the fact these cars are seriously neglected and raced around a lot. Its been very reliable and I'm surprised with it being a very small v6 engine.This base model is very easy to repair and doesn't kill your wallet. The car is for people that want a sporty look without paying for it,the only thing I can say that's expensive is the insurance premiums. Performance wise its no trans am or formula, but its no hamster on wheels either.
In the summer the car turns heads from everyone of all ages.Highway traveling is great for just two people and that's it car has very small cabin!!! The only complaint I have about it is I'm 5 foot 6 and I need a pillow to drive it the seats sit very very low. If general motors started making the firebird again I would be first in line to buy one. Would not recommend driving car in bad winter weather you will get stuck, I live in Denver Colorado and most of the winter I drive my suv. Would recommend this car to anyone that loves sports cars just keep in mind its for looks and
transportation only not a trans am by any means
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
