OK, first of all, I can see that you can't customize a car at all. Second of all, I have a 1992 Sunbird SE to my name, and all those problems that you talked about happened to me too, but did I give up? No! You just gotta have some time and patience. Now, thanks to my patience, time and love, she pushes 264 out of that hood due to a Port & Polish job, not to mention, she's equipped with a K&N air filter, and for sound, a JVC PK110 with 12 disc changer, complete with Alpine amp and 12 inch Kickers in the trunk. Beat That ;)

To the guy that cannot fix his Sunbird by himself.
Grab a book and learn. I can fix most things on my Sunbird, without knowing much about fixing cars... and I'm a girl. Ha Ha... I pity you. Although, I admit that most parts that go on the Sunbird are hard to reach (I guess I just have smaller hands).

I own a Sunbird. I acquired it for 100 dollars with a blown motor & after I put a new 3.1L v6 in it you just can't out do this car. I love my Sunbird would not trade it for nothing. Also my stereo was very easy to install also got a install kit off the net for 15 dollars.

I agree with the first guy about the Pontiac Sunbird. Bought one for my daughter, had 104,000 miles on it. Lasted her one year (only 6,000 miles). Changed the oil every 2000 miles and now a connecting rod and possibly bearings are out. Also, had the radiator patched and it sprung another leak. This car is the worst piece of junk I have ever owned. It's going to the junkyard tomorrow.

Well as far as the cd player, I installed one myself, I will admit it is a little hard due to the fact that there is little space to work with, but all you do is buy a wiring harness (anyone sells it) and connect it to a box behind the factory radio and match the wires. took me about 45 minutes to install.

I own a 93 Sunbird SE V6, and I have to admit that the engine design is kinda messed because its hard to get to most things, but it's not impossible. The one you got was probably tooken care of like crap because mine is running on stock everything, except clutch and regular maintance. The CD player is "fairly" easy to install and just takes some custom work to get it to fit.

I've got a 1990 Pontiac Sunbird, and I can't get to the back of the radio to hook up a CD player. What do I have to take off to get to it? I think that's the only thing weird about the Pontiac 'bird. I need help? Someone know how?
But other than that, it's a great running car, good on gas, and decently fast and fun.

I got a Pontiac Sunbird 3 years ago, I don't drive much but I'll say this, I love it to death. It's a step up from my first LeBaron, and even though I had to do some work on it, and it needs the new top put on bad, I still love it to death. Some of my best memories are in that thing, and it has yet to fail me. Being inexperienced, I do get scared easily, but I still respect it for being a great car and 300 dollars, well that's nothing I would've passed up.
