    Yay — The car has a sleek design and I just love the interior....shes my baby. The headliner could be a better colour, but is tolerable when not mixed with the tan interior. I have the 5 speed version and for a four-banging-fury, shes not bad... ive driven much worse. Theres a lot of space in the engine bay so lots of mods can be done on her and if done right, sunfires can be beautiful cars.

    Pros: cheap and good gas mileage

    Cons: hard to find one that hasnt been abused

    Car Is A Good Car — ITs a good car just wish i had a manual transmission i like those better. My car has very good sound. with two 12 inche subs in the back with a 500 watt amp. All sony Xplode. Cars really clean and i enjoy it very much. hey it just gets me from point a to point a to point be. Also its a tan car with carpet interior so its allright.

    Pros: Sound stearing AC all that

    Cons: low in power

    An Awesome Car, That Has Held Up Well For Ten Years — All top of the line accessories included when I bought it, most of which I use all the time. The fact that it is a convertible is awesome, I get to brag about it to my friends. The body of the car is great, looks like a minor sports car. The circuitry is tarting to get old though and some things have needed replacing. the headlights are a little weak in the dark without the high beams. The original upholstry is still in the car and doesn't look bad at all for its age. The gas mileage is ok; in the city it gets around 17 miles per gallon, maybe more, and I haven't measured the mpg on the highways.

    Pros: convertible, quality equalizer for radio and CD player, good feel to the handling, cool-looking car

    Cons: damage to weather strip along driver side window causes water leakage in the rain, ride can feel a bit bumpy at times, not so bright head lights when not using high beams

    Good And Reliable Cheap Car — The seats are incredibly uncomfortable You've got to be sure not to have a Quad-4 as engine because they arent reliable on mileage.

    Pros: I dont know what else to say

    Cons: this car is OK

    Great Car More Interior Room Than You Think. Great Gas Milage — Great car, lots of room inside as well as in the trunk. No real mechanical problems up to now. Great gas milage. Would buy another one without thinking twice about it

    Cheap Car. — The sunfire does exactly what it was built to do: get someone from point A to point B. With a little bit of work they become really fun cars but stock they suck.

    Pros: Cheap, easy to work on.

    Cons: Massive body roll, slow as all hell stock.

    Good Car To Get From Point A To B With A Little Performance — Decent car for having a 4 cyl engine. The GT has the bigger 2.4L 4 cyl... right around 160hp factory... easy/cheap to upgrade.

    Pros: Great gas mileage, good acceleration in the GT model (especially with the 5-speed manual trans), good breaking and handling

    Cons: Small car, not so good for big guys like me... i'd say comfortable max height would be around 5' 11" and that might be pushing it

    Good Starter Car — Good car, reliable, got around good in the winter, not the fastest on the road, then again if you want fast get a bike.

    Pros: Nice roomy interior, fun to drive, got around good in the winter. Inexpensive.

    Cons: Not a whole lot.

    It Works? — Haha um ... its better than my truck. Handles pretty good, gets up to speed rather fast. Runs kinda hot but it balances out after a while.

    Pros: Easy to handle
    Small

    Cons: Heats up a little quick, but balances out fast
    Takes a little getting used to

    Not Too Shabby — Owned this one for a couple months back in high school.... before wrecking the hell out of it. It was a decent car- only thing about it was that if you accellerated too hard, the car would make an aweful stench

    Pros: Best car I've ever had

    Cons: Didn't have it for long
