A good dependable car
In September of 2001 I had 144,000 miles on the car and the two (2) bottom bolts came out of the right rear hub assembly, that attached it to the hub (frame). Had to replace the complete assembly. This could have been very dangerous. We checked the bolts on the left side and they were not as tight as they should have been. Please have a mechanic check all your bolts on the hubs.
Had the transmission serviced at 132,000, it just needed an adjustment.
Water and fuel pumps replaced at about 116,000.
My Sunbird is a great running car and is dependable. With regular maintenence it should last close to 300,000 or more. Smooth ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
