1993 Pontiac Sunbird SE 3.1L V6 from North America
Not bad for a first car, if you have the money. Work on this car and it will treat you well.
Emergency Brake got loose every 2 months.
Windshield wiper arms became loose and had no "press" against the windshield.
Battery kept on draining even if the car was off.
Power steering hose blew.
Front suspension doesn't last long, the car bottoms out all the time.
Starter had to be replaced.
Thermostat also had to be replaced.
Even with all of the problems, the car itself is very comfortable.
The car had lots of acceleration with the V6 engine.
Very fun to drive and looks really sharp if it has the GT package on it.
It sounds very loud "in a good way"
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Everything you described as "faults" on this vehicle are the direct result of poor maintenance or neglect. E-brake gets loose on every car if you use it constantly, that's not really abnormal. The other stuff makes me think you don't slow down much for speed bumps, don't do regular maintenance on the car to keep the other stuff in proper working order, and you probably park it outside in the sun all day, every day. Treat your car well and it will return the favor.
