1988 Pontiac Sunbird SE 1.9 from North America
Makes a good project for teens who want a sporty looking car at a good price.
The fuel injection system has been giving me a bit of a hassle, but is being kept under control with a good bottle of fuel injector cleaner.
Shortly after buying the car I had to replace the fuel pump. Since then no real major problems have come up.
My trunk and driver door leak uncontrolled and are causing my carpet and seats to discolor. Due to the constant water in the car the driver seat has completely split open. The passenger seat is locked in one position and no longer moves.
The speedometer sometimes drops to zero without any apparent reason when reaching speeds above seventy quickly.
This car is wonderful for teenagers and young adults that don't have a lot of time or money to invest in a car. The car requires minimal maintenence, is good on gas, and has affordable repair costs.
The real fun of this car is dressing it up. Because the car itself didn't cost much, I had more money to spend on the looks of the car such as low profile tires, 15 inch alloy wheels, tinted windows, and CD/Tape deck stereo system.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
