2003 Pontiac Sunfire from North America
I'm not sure where to start, but I will never purchase another one again. The first 6 months of having it, the entire wiring system went. I have had a wiring harness put in, brakes replaced constantly, brake lines have been replaced due to rotting underneath or just breaking, the exhaust system is horrible, the struts have been replaced a few times since I bought it, and the spark plugs (I lost count on how times that they were replaced).
Now the most recent issue is the timing belt just went on it; it acts like it wants to start, but it won't. Even had someone tried to jump start it and it didn't work, and that's when my mechanic told me that it was the timing belt, especially after I heard something snap right before it just died at a light.
I would not recommend this car to anyone, not even to my worst enemy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Both 4 cylinder engines available for this car did not use timing belts. They came with chains.

You do realize that the timing belt is a normal wear item that needs replaced at regular intervals right? The fact that it broke shows nothing about the quality of the vehicle, but that you don't maintain your vehicle properly.
