2000 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2.4 Twin Cam from North America
I love it, but I hate it
At 200 miles I had speed sensor in trans fixed.
Trans fluid leaking.
Window regulators replaced 2 times.
Engine misfiring due to wires breaking.
Top plate or strut bearing bad now.
Radio replaced twice.
Fog lights inoperable, light out.
Wheel bearings have gone twice.
Gas door jammed into body.
Gasket for exhaust pipe to manifold bad.
Door belt moldings chipped and replaced twice.
Faulty turn switch signal.
Seat belts won't retract.
Drive belt bad.
Tail lights and dashboard lights inoperable, wires at multifunction switch connectors bad.
Pressure control solenoid replaced.
Engine sounds like there is a rod knock right now.
I just hit 50,000 miles!!!
I love my car, but it is a piece of junk. I am buying something away from Pontiac for the rest of my life. The dealership is never any help, and Pontiac Customer Service is just like the dealership. If you call them and complain enough, you may be able to get the extended warranty for FREE!!! I did. I called Michigan and everything. I have a lemon, but its too late now.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I would like to know if you have "G2" on your serial number. I think the "G2" models are lemons. My boyfriend has a 2002 pontiac sunfire SLX and he had so much trouble with it. I just want to verify if it's true. Thanks.

We have also found that Pontiac could care less about their customers.. We had a trunk leak 2 days after we got the car.. and lost 100$ worth of first aid equipment as a result. This car btw was brand new. You would think they might replace the kits at their cost to keep us happy.. but neither the dealer nor pontiac's warranty department would have anything to do with it except to "FLIP" the rubber on the trunk.!!! it was on BACKWARDS!!!
