Brakes have been serviced twice (new rotors/drums).
Clock display on CD player no longer works.
Rear speakers stopped working, front speakers starting to go.
Clear-coat is wearing off of the car very badly.
This car is awesome. It is quick, and very solid on the highway. It also handles very nicely. Some impressive features that my car has include; steering wheel controls, sunroof, keyless entry, rims, and dual exhaust.
The exterior of the car is very attractive, it resembles that of the Firebird. The interior is not bad, but the seats are a very ugly color and are not that comfortable.
Issues with the stereo have been annoying. I installed an aftermarket deck with new rear speakers. This made me lose my steering wheel controls. Unfortunately the car was broken into and some jack*** stole the deck so I am back to the factory unit with a display that doesn't work.
People may think that these are disposable cars, and in a sense it is true. They are disposable because people do not take care of them. I run fully synthetic oil in mine, and it doesn't burn any oil and it doesn't even look that dirty when I do oil changes. If you have a car that has been well taken care of, it WILL last a LONG time. And the good thing is that parts are very available and very cheap since there are so many Sunfires in the scrap yard!
This car is fast, sporty, handles well, and is great on gas. As long as it has been properly taken care of, you have yourself a nice ride.
