1997 Pontiac Sunfire SE 4-cylindar from North America
Good quality for what it is
A/C died, would cost over $800 to fix.
Oil pan got a leak, oil leaked into the exhaust which blew oil fumes into the car when on.
3 flat tires within first year of ownership (were all Cooper tires, after the flats I switched to Bridgestone and have had no problems since)
Battery and alternator died within first 2 years of ownership.
Other odd issues:
Clock light died (circuit problem)
Lock on truck came loose, had to reglue.
Needs tune-up often or engine starts to falter and it doesn't start well in the rain.
Orange dash light is cool.
To put 70K+ on in less than 3 year, and have little major problems is very good.
Would recommend for a young family, single business person or college student, too small for a large family.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
