1999 Pontiac Firefly from North America
Excellent vehicle. GM made a mistake discontinuing them!
Exhaust system replaced every other year.
Front wheel bearings twice.
This was another excellent car built in the CAMI plant in Ingersoll Ontario. We bought it off lease from a dealer in Kitchener and drove the heck out of it for 5 years. Unfortunately for the car, I wrote it off on Valentine's Day on black ice.
I was quite happy with how well the car absorbed the impact as the entire driver compartment was protected. I was going less than 20 kph and the car that I hit (head on) was doing over 40. The car I hit was a Subaru which actually pushed my car back about a meter! The air bags deployed perfectly and all I suffered was a stiff neck and broken water bottle. The car was a write off and now I only have my '98 model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
