    Your Bottom-line On This Car — I love this car despite its meager 98 hp. It is light, very basic (no a/c, power windows, or power steering) and has been extremely reliable. This car has been a lot of fun to drive. It gets great gas mileage (as much as 37 mpg highway). I've driven it to the Tail of the Dragon and multiple cross country trips. And, it serves as my faithful daily commuter car (84 miles/day).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive

    Cons: extremely limited cargo space

    Real Sports Car — My first true sports car. 5 speed v6 mid engine rear wheel drive. a little fatser than the other 2 but a whole lot nicer and better handling. very rare only 15,968 GT's made in '87 and less than half were manual. unlike those dime a dozen mustangs. i mean who really wants one of those POS cars anyhow. my car may not be as fast but i would rather have it over a mustang hands down.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: mid engine, not a ford mustang

    Cons: none

    Fiero Gt — What sits lower than a corvette and has an ecofriendly engine that will scare the pants off you? A fiero gt of course. I drove one of these and man they are quick. If you want a car that has performance style like a porsche with less than half the price this is the car for you. Don't misunderstand me porsches outperform these easy but they mimic the style of a porsche. Super fast and great on gas. It will go if you can shift fast enough. Just dont get in an accident or this will be your plastic grave.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Performance, gas mileage, handling, and its mid-engined.

    Cons: Space.

    Fieros Aren't That Bad To Drive — When I got the car in the mid 90's it was kinda rare. I remember people constantly asking me "you're still alive" when I told them what I drove. The thing is the problems the car is known for are people being idiots and not taking care of the car. I really did love the car and was sorry to lose it.

    Pros: memorable car, good acceleration, fun to drive

    Cons: little to no cargo room, fiberglass cracks easily in accidents

    4 Star — A rare car to see actually driving down the road instead of off in a ditch. The car truly handels and preforms well with the v6. it is fun to drive (for a week until it breaks down) and since it is on a space frame chassis is very easy to customize to your licking. I have had mine for 2 years now and have been working on it ever since.

    Pros: Unique car with great preformance.

    Cons: Breaks down all the time

    Groovy — A neat little idea Pontiac had but GM heavily employed The Corvette Law and cut it down to an underpowered sidenote of the 80's. Fast forward 20 years and it can beat out just about any new production car if you build them right.

    Pros: Fun, highly customizable and just a great platform in general.

    Cons: Finding parts or service for the 2M6 Fieros without it being pricey or entirely special order.

    Has Issues, But What 20 Year Old Car Doesn't? — This is my first car and, though it breaks quite often, I feel that is because the previous owners abused it. I view myself as the "redeemer" of this car. I am slowly restoring it to original condition.

    Pros: Handling. The car can take some pretty tight turns at high speeds.

    Cons: Engine. The base four cylinder engine has only 100 horsepower.

    A Rarity Worth Finding — One of the more rare sports cars in existence. My dad owns one and it is a great drive. The interior is really great and gives a ride that rivals a Ferrari of the same year.

    Pros: Great design and power

    Cons: Gas mileage and no power steering

    '80s Technology For The Win!!! — This car with the optional 5-speed is awesome!!! Low on horsepower but the mix of a mid-engine, low/ aggresive stance, and handling make it a winner. By this time the exploding problem was taken care of.

    Pros: Fun car that really shines on a curvy road with tight turns.

    Cons: 140hp from a V6 and metal coolant pipes which are often accidently crushed. A good buy for 2000 dollars or less.

    Small, Fast, Agile Car Built For Fun, Yet Less Expensive Than Foreign Sports Cars! By Richard

    I don't think I've mentioned how safe the Fiero is, but with its wide stance and agile cornering it's not very apt to turn over due to its low center of gravity even at higher speeds. Even though the ... Read More
