Clock/Radio light decided to stop working.
Replaced the lower right control arm 5 times.
Replaced the rear defroster twice.
2nd gear disappeared with no warning. Had to replace the transmission.
Replaced the struts and the need to be replaced again.
Check Engine light has been on for 4 years and 3 GM dealerships and 2 private mechanics can't figure it out.
Have to change my brakes (rotors too) every 6 months.
Doesn't start in the rain.
Dash vibrates like crazy.
Air conditioner has been fixed 3 times.
Vent pressure very poor.
Windshield wiper fluid dispenser constantly clogs up.
*Please note: all these have been repaired by various mechanics.
Brutal to be stuck with this car. It's a money pit. Its not even fast. I love the 'turbo' button - air condition button (just turn it off and all of a sudden you can pass someone) Sure, it has got me from point A to point B, but the worries and repairs have cost me more than what the car is worth. And the fact that I am fixing things numerous times for items that should be replaced once in a car's lifetime!
I can't afford to keep it and I can't afford to sell it. I hate it. I will never buy another GM/Pontiac. I've unfortunately I've had to endure some of their other lemons... So it isn't just about the Sunfire.
