2003 Pontiac Sunfire SL 2.2 from North America
At 50000 Km, the check engine light came on and was fixed by dealer under warranty.
We bought this car new and drove 81000Km in 3 years. I recently traded it for a Malibu because my kids are all adult size now.
I cannot say I love it, but I am 100% satisfy with this car, when factor in the purchase price, maintenance cost (the owner manual even suggest no wheel alignment is needed) and fuel economy.
The engine had more than enough power with reasonable fuel economy. The air conditioning is cool good and the heatin in winter is also quick to pump out warm air.
The only maintenance I did was oil and filter change (by myself). After 81K, the engine still as smooth as new. May be the Japanese cars are a year or two better in quality. However, they cost a lot more and I believe the difference in price is more than the difference in quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
