Very Good First Car — I liked having this for a starter car, got me where I needed to be, never once broke down, good fuel economy, low maintenance costs, reasonably priced when I bought it. it had a sun roof and power windows wich I loved

1999 Pontiac Sunfire — This car is a nice sleek car. And fun to drive.. other than that i don't really know much more to put. The only think i don't like is the engine is known for having issues. A used engine is hard to find

Sunfire Gogo — Like that its sporty with nice body lines. Dont like the fact that it reminds me of a cavalier. Has lots of the cavaliers inside features. Like that its a 5 speed and only 98.321 miles on it. Could use upgraded parts on motor..

1999 Sunfire — I got this car because it was a good deal. Although it has to have minor repairs a little more often than I think it's still a good car. It doesn't have automatic locks or power windows but I don't like those anyway..too dangerous. I LOVE the sunroof!!

Gets The Job Done — Even though I've had my share of problems, I can always get from point A to point B. To me, getting where I need to be matters, not how good my car looks. Although, a paint job would be nice.

Sunfire Gt 1999 — Works god for me, cheap on gas and no problems. Good for a couple with one kid.. I used more or less for small trips, back and forth to work. Not great for big shopping trips. Not much else to say.

She doesn't cost much to drive.

Nothing to be afraid of :)

She Is Very Reliable — I like this car a lot. She runs really well but doesn't have a whole lot of power. She doesn't cost much to drive which is good for a college student like me. And, of course, her Seafoam Green paint makes her very unique!
