Value Car — I like everything about this car besides it's small size - not much room for luggage! It is very reliable, though, and all maintenance for it has been quite cheap. I average between 25-30 mpg with a mix of city and highway driving, and I tend to have a heavy foot. I can get around 300 miles from one tank of fuel. It is no speed demon, but it will keep up with traffic. It has a good balance of power for it's weight.

One Of The Worst Cars Ive Dorve — This was my first car, it was free so i wasn't going to pass it up. The build quality was absolutely horrible as most american cars are. The performance was horrible. The interior wasn't too bad to sit in but it was nothing special. The exterior looked like it was built by a blind guy. It was just a horrible car to own and im glad i only had it for a couple months

Works For Now — wish it was a 2 door i want to put a sound system in it. it works great no accidents and it's pretty good for a starter car it costs about $50 to fill up and it lasts a long time

Cons

Engine always shut off

My 2nd Car — I didn't really like this car too much. For one the engine use to shut off when I stopped at a red light and it easily feel apart. Also the manual windows and everything going wrong with it at once wasn't cool either!

Amazing — great gas milage (350 / tank), good handling, standard or automatic - quick acceleration, does what you want it to, only routine repairs, easy to make faster, easy to maintain, biiiggg trunk - hauls a lot for a car, no problems, fun to drive

Pros

Dashboard, good gas milage

Cons

Very long doors (coupe)

135

Good Weekly Rental — I drove this one as a rental for a week on vacation in Alberta. I know the reputation this whole series had but at least for a limited time car rental, this did the job. Gas milage was ok, it was comfy and this coupe was actually fun to drive. I really enjoyed the dashboard display at night: all red. The only negative for the week that I had it was that the damn doors were so long that it was easy to nick another car when parked. Perhaps all coupes are like that. For that, I like my four or five door option :)

Pros

likes to sip on gas, not down it, it is quick, and will get you from A to B

Cons

wish it had more horse power.

Life Of A Sunfire — it's good on gas, it will get u on the highway good enough, it can roar up to 170km/h with not to much problem, good braking stops when u ask it to, it was stock 140hp but i brought it up to 150 so it has some more kick to it. yeah not a bad car.
