I bought a '95 Sunfire GT 2.3L, back in '99. the car now has 231,000km. I only had to replace the water pump and the catalytic converter in 2002 with 210,000km. Other than regular maintenance the car has ran perfect.

Summary:

A lemon at best

Faults:

Three Days after I purchased the car, the head gasket blew. Eleven months later the head cracked. A year and 4 months later the head gasket blew again. Many people have the same problem with the Sunfire.

General Comments:

The Dealership where I purchased this car, is known as DAVIS PONTIAC of Richboro, Pa. They are rude and will not help you. People are gathering together to form a class-action suit against General Motors. This is one of the worst cars and biggest mistakes I've ever made. Even when I took the car to the dealership to be repaired, it was done sloppily and incorrectly.

I don't know why the Pontiac Sunfire has so many bad reviews. I have a 1995 Pontiac Sunfire 4-door SE and it runs great.

I also had a 1997 Pontiac sunfire and it broke all to pieces right after the 50,000 warranty was up. I would like to know more about this law suite as I have been trying this for years. Also they are very rude everywhere and like to make cheap cars for more business.
