1994 Pontiac Sunbird SE 3.1 from North America
Best car I ever had, wouldn't trade it for the world!
Replaced first engine at 160,000 miles. Replaced first transmission at 210,000 miles. wheels bearings at 200,00 miles, radiator at 100,000 and 200,000 miles. C.V. axle replaced at 110,000 miles. other than that, just normal wear and tear.
I run this car like it was a race car. It has had a very hard life. In races, I have beaten Mustang GTs, Camaro Z-28s, and all kinds of rice burners. I get rubber in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears on a regular basis. It handles better than a Corvette in the neighborhood and accelerates from 0 - 60 just as well.
I just started modifying the engine and it screams. I have added high performance coil packs, K & N air filter, iridium spark plugs, 2 spiral maxes, ported and polished intake manifold and plenum. From 0 - 60 I'm running about 4.2!
I am a small person. I find the cabin cozy and extremely convenient. Everything is in reach.
I love this car! I wish I could find another one. It is safe, reliable. This is something I would trust my child in. As far as wet roads, I couldn't imagine finding a safer car. This car has saved my life more than once.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too have a Pontiac Sunbird, 3.1-liter V6, 90,000 miles and it runs beautifully. It does everything you say it does, but the one bad thing is that the window seal is starting to crack, but other than that it loves to rip up the road.

I am looking for photos of a Pontiac teal Sunbird convertible. I have 1994 white Sunbird convertible with white leather seats.
I'd like to to paint it Teal with sunspot metalic flecs. This car has a hipster feel to it. I think the design of the Firebird is inferior to the design of a Sunbird. Once, if you bought a used Sunbird you had your Ged. Now, the Sunbird exhibits the cool affect of a master's thesis on wheels.
I hope to hear from you. Living in The Age of The Almighty Sunbird.
Peace to love,
