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..

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.

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

Pros

Runs and handles well with good acceleration

Cons

Due to a defect in the stock radio(maybe just the cd player variant) the volume goes crazy and the spare tire storage can't hold a normal tire like in other cars.

Good Car For First Timers (high School Teens) And Has Very Few Problems And Handles Well. — The Sunfire I have is a decent car that runs very well with almost no problems except the radios volume goes all over the place and the spare tire storage area can't hold a normal tire like other cars I know of can even when they come with "donuts". Also the handling is good and when combined with the ets and the manual transaxle shifting helps keep control in winter conditions which is a plus. The car is sporty and is good for high school teens ans a first car but is not limited to just that age group.

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

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.

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!!
