These Cars Will Take You To He!! And Back And Want To Go Back Again! — I have owned many Sunbirds (8 in total) This white 94 was a car that took EVERYTHING I put it through. When my tranny in my K5 Blazer when out (tranny overflowed and caught fire) I had a big off-road event planed the following weekend, Well I wasn't going to miss it, I took the Sunbird, All the guys laughed when I showed up, and stopped when I wasnt stuck, mind you I didn't go throught the "nasty rough stuff" I and a little crazy but I am also realistic, they will bottom out. But it made it through. I put 220000kms on it in the time I had it and I did a little work to the engine. Fuel mileage was just amazing and the car always started and not once did it let me down. Right up until the car was side-swipped on the street by a drunk... :( The only bad thing that ever happened to any of my Sunbirds was the clutch that no-one stocked (The sunbird in question didn't have the Isuzu or Getrag tranny) Of all the Sunbirds there were only (about 1500) With the tranny I had in it, Cant remember the make. For a first car on a daily driver or a second car, in my opinion, you cant go wrong with a sunbird.

The Sunbird That Will Not Die. — god performance for such a small/affordable car. great build quality for the era. super reliable. this car simply WILL NOT DIE! there are several little things wrong but nothing really worth spending a lot of money to fix. actually very fun to drive. We have had this car for 5 years and have not had to replace anything more than regular maintenance and a few cheap fixes.

A Great Car — I loved this car a lot. It was a beautiful aqua green color with a manual transmission. ABS brake system. This was the first car that I learned to drive a manual transmission in. This may have been the reason why the clutch went out on it, but I really think it was because the previous owner didn't take very good care of it. When I bought it, it had stuck on candy and food all over it, and there was change stuck everywhere you can imagine, including the air conditioning system, where I bet there is still money in there now. Gas mileage was excellent, which is good because I put a lot of miles on that baby going basck and forth between La Crosse and Mauston, Wisconsin.

Pretty Good Car — Great car. Has a great 2.0L 4 inline engine. Runs great and sounds great. The thing I dislike about it is that it is difficult to change out the radio for a new one. Over all it is a beast of a little car.
