Good ours was not maintained well before we got it. by ex contour owner from ontario on 01/05/2013. Trim: 1996 Pontiac Sunfire, Owned 3 years.
Pros: needed a affordable car and it has lasted 2 years we got it when it was 15 years old. When my dad got it is was not in good shape but it kept going for the first year with only 1 oil change.
Cons: started to die every other month however it was not maintained all that well.it got about 32 mpg highway. the seats were old and junk and did not sit up strait enough. A gas smell came in the cabin when the heating was turned on . Watch for a anti-theft system anti theft system is in older sunfires if the car does not start because of a electrical problem do not keep trying theft system might kick in then you will need to turn it off in order to get the car to start
Overall review: Keep it maintained and it will do fine. ours had to be used as the family car which sucked because i often had to ride in the back( it was a 2 door). my dad took it to work everyday on the highway and the car got about 39k km on it every year. the exhaust pipe sucked! it fell hung low and all the mounts rotted away. few engine problems really water pump oil the cooling system started failing and the brake lines needed to be replaced. the worst problem is rusting out on the bottom but when we got it ,it was in poor shape.ours still ran even with over 290k km on it.
