    Pontiac 2001 — like that its standard, and 4 Door, like fold door back seat for more truck space. Have to repair the stereo/radio system.. back speakers do not work currently. Gas mileage is very good in summer because the air system take a lot more then the driving does, so winder is a gas sucker.

    Pros: Gas effitent, standard, 4 door

    Cons: body.. not the best looking thing, and alot of wana be's have tryed to custimize body.. but all fail as ive seen.

    2001 Sunfire Gtx — Bought this car after my Aura disappeared from the driveway. The Quad-4 engine was excellent and suspension pretty good for a top end factory Cavalier. The modem I had was the 4-door GTX with the limited slip trac control and Monsoon stereo. Unfortunately GM's are not designed to last over 250k, especially their econo boxes. The valves on the block fried in 2007 eventually sending the camshaft to its demise. I ended up getting a rebuilt block put in and my sister in law still drives the car today.

    Pros: Amazing torque, great audio

    Cons: Typical North American electrical plagues

    2001 Pontiac Sunfire — The performance could be a little bit better but that will be better once i put more money into the engine. The bulid quality is pretty good i haven't had to do that much so far i only have had to replace the spark plugs but thats not that hard to do in the first place. the appearance is near perfect being that it is silver. Its great on gas mileage i drive around 200 miles a week and thats only 3/4 of a tank basically. the fun factor all depends on the driver like for me its fun cause of winters. I would recommend one of my friends to buy this car if the wanted something fun to drive in and still get good gas milieage

    Pros: fun in the winter

    Cons: not enough horsepower but thats about to change

    Fast, Fun And Cool To Drive!!! — This car is amazing for acceleration, it provides power and control and you can out preform most cars off the line that you see on the streets now a days. Cost for the Car is realitvely cheap, however mechanical work can be expesive as the Sunfire brand is a more complicated car. Yet in the long run she is a blast to drive and even more fun when beating those mustangs down city streets. As for the Interior and Exterior the car is built sounds and strong. It's low frame and slik design make it a very sporty looking car while at the same time providing confort and safty to whom ever is in the car. All in all the car's frame is easy to do add-ons and body kit instalations as the smooth lines and look allow give it the apperance of a nice custom import if you really want them too.

    Pros: Great speed and handling

    Cons: Can be a pain when it comes to mechanical work

    Pontiac Sunfire '01 — bought it in 06, performance is fine, breaking can squeak. new tires. Black paint with white pinstripes down the sides. appearance needs some body work and some interior work could be done just to spruce it up a bit i say about 15-20 mpg so it could be better. low maintenance except for oil and tires as usual. the car is pretty fun to drive, tops out at 120mph or so thats how far i could take it anyway. i would recommend this car to a friend cuz it drives well, its not a gas guzzler, and it looks pretty good on the in and outside. no major dislikes at all

    Pros: runs well, low to no maintenance, fairly good gas mileage

    Cons: body work could be improved
