1988 Pontiac Sunbird GT 2.0 turbo from North America
Still runs with the new models, speed/MPG
Timing belt broke at 54k, and again at 90k.
A/T trans lockup converter coil failed (unplugged it).
Headlight covers open at 40mph.
Radio / speakers both have bad connections.
Power windows are slow / rubber outside seals cracked.
Interior / trunk are still nice.
Needs a new convertible top cover (OLD).
Turn signal isn't behaving right.
Water temperature gauge works intermittently.
Front tires go bald a lot and smoke / squeal.
The 1988 Fiero GT had no turbo... (why?). This car is great. The Sunbird name kinda kills it though.
Anybody ever use the trunk-rack?
It should have a spoiler.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What purpose does a rear spoiler serve on a front wheel drive car?
Anyways, you already have automatic pop-up front spoilers (the headlight covers).

Get the temp gauge fixed - the head gaskets on the Brazilian OHC 4 did not last long. Other than that and occasional cam/lifter wear, they're good engines :)
