1994 Pontiac Sunbird LE 2.0 from North America
Good reliable car, sad that I have to sell It
Bought the car from a tow company that had impounded it. Had to replace alternator and battery to get it started.
Front shocks need replacement. AC/Heater does not work, if I turn it on, it shorts the fuse and the fan doesn't run, then engine overheats. Problem solved by not running the climate control. Most likely needs to replace air compressor.
Gas gauge doesn't work, most likely a fuse.
It does have some good rust bellow the doors, nothing major or noticeable at a glance, car was from Wisconsin so snow damage. Car is in California now.
The car was in good condition, clean and good body for being 130,000+ miles, the I think that falls on the previous owner.
Very comfortable and cozy. My first and definitely reliable car. Sad to have to sell it to make room and money for my other cars. Would be sold to definitely someone I know very well and and want to have a good, reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
Review Date: 4th December, 2004
I purchased my '94 Sunbird from a friend for $300.00 CDN, knowing that the car had blown its headgasket. I elected to do the work fixing the engine myself rather than pay about $1,200.00 (min) in labour alone for a garage to do it.
I found that the vehicle is sound and the engine is well designed because most of the parts are easy to access and/or maintain. I honestly got a 'warm fuzzy' in feeling/knowing that my 'new' car will be trouble-free for some time coming.
I am proud to call this car my own.
