Don't Waste Your Money On This One — where to start with this one... lets see dash rids halfway up the windshield, absolutely gutless, no good at drifting, top end speed of 140 km/h, and for a small car the gas mileage sucked horribly. i'm a gmc guy but i need to ask what the hell was gm thinking cause that car was an epic fail

All And All Its A Nice Car To Have — i like the look of the car it has lots of power under the hood with the 3.1L V6 fun just driving it in the summer it is really loud with the magnaflow exhaust. im happy with the 500km i get per tank and the car is old enough so i can do my own work on it when needed.

Very Good First Car — the car was a great first car, i used to beat up this car all the time and it took everyhting i had and everything my two brothers had before the transmission started to slip. i think that is the reason they went and made the sunfire so they had a car that broke down all the time instead one the bird which didnt.

Not A Good Car — It sucks. i would rather have a chevy pickup truck. i have had to replace the trans cooler, power steering, and all 4 brake lines on it. i just rolled over 100,000 miles. it has rust on the doors and a home made patch over the rear wheel tub. DON'T BUY ONE.

Pros

Decent sized 3.1 V6 engine for a relatively small car.  Good gas mileage combined with decent performance.  Styling isn't that bad for a early 90s car.  Rear seat folds downs to allow increased room for carrying things.

Cons

Terrible suspension...rides can be very bumpy.

Not Bad — A compact car with decent performance and good value for the money. The car is pretty dependable and I haven't had too many major problems with this car so far. Only have about 90,000 miles on it, and I'm still driving it.

Should Be Good For Another 19 Years Or More. — I'm the 2nd owner & had it 9 years now with no problems at all. Not a hot rod but averages 30- 35 mpg on trips. 102,000 miles on the 2.0 engine and runs like new..looks new too. Garage kept.

great gas milage

Cons

Would Recommend As A Good First Car — the performance was sluggish but a great car none the less. the build quality was great you could not hurt it i would go mudding in it from time to time and just beat it up. it would not stop, appearance was not to be desired for but it was a good first car. gas milage was great. approx 30 to the gallon. fun factore was not much but i did love the system and teh upgraded cd player i put in there.

Good Work Car — I can explain this car in 3 words...ZERO TO SIXTY... It was like a lightning bolt. I would tell people i never got a speeding ticket in it because it was too slow, when in reality...it was too fast. when i saw blue lights flashing i instantly dropped it back to second and stomped the pedal (it was an automatic) and hauled off before they could make a move.

1992 Pontiac Sunbird — I bought the car when i turned 16. 4 cylinder 4 door bright red. the car had power locks and everything else was manual. main complaint would have to be how badly the car rusted out. I had a rust spot in the back left door so bad that i could reach my hand in it and push the back panel off. It got rear ended and then about 2 months later T-boned which totaled the car for good. But in the year i owned the car, it was fun. it got good mileage and was fun in the snow. pull the e brake and that car just slid all over the place. good first car
