A Good First Car for a Student
I owned a red 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and I fell in love with the look of the car the first day I laid eyes on it. It was my first car and I got it when I was in high school. It had two doors and was a compact, sporty looking vehicle. Replacing parts on the car was fairly cheap so that was a big plus. It drove smoothly but it did need several repairs over my years of driving it. The audio was the biggest issue as the CD player/radio seemed to turn up the volume on it's own whenever it felt like and CD's skipped terribly when going over anything rough or going around turns.
Decent power for the price point.
Overall, for the cost of the car, it's pretty decent. I bought the 97 Sunfire in 2016 almost 20 years after it was produced. The engine packs a pretty big punch, and I could beat out many other cars on the road in casual non-competitive races. I enjoy the design of the car, as it's not your typical sedan. I enjoy things of uncommon design, and while it's not odd, it's just slightly different enough to justify it's purchase. Everything in the interior was still in good condition despite the car's age.
Not great for a family
I purchased this car new in 2005 as my main vehicle for transportation. The car has manual locks and windows. There are only five windshield wiper speeds, and the highest setting can sometimes feel too slow if it is really down pouring. The car gets decent gas mileage, about 32 miles per gallon and it has a 12 gallon gas tank. This model was the sport model, which unbeknownst to me at purchase meant it had a special rim size which requires more expensive tires than the average model. The chrome rims are also prone to cracking to the point of being irreparable, and since the model has been discontinued, makes replacing them cost a hefty fee. It has been going for 10 years and we have about 160,000 miles on the vehicle. The back seat is small, which makes inserting a car seat difficult. My child is now 5 and he is cramped in the back. The trunk is spacious but the opening for the truck is rather small so fitting larger items in can be difficult.
