    2003 Pontiac Sunfire - Base

    Pros: Great look for the price

    Cons: Performance and reliability

    Advice: Look elsewhere

    When I purchased my Sunfire GT, it was 2 years old. Being used, I naturally did not expect it to be flawless. However, this car gave us problems from the minute we got it home. At first it was small little repairs here and there. However, those small little repairs quickly turned into larger problems.This is without a doubt the worst car I have ever owned. I know a few other people who have also gotten rid of their sunfires because of these reasons. I urge everyone considering one to look somewhere else.

    2003 Pontiac Sunfire - Base

    Pros: Great look for the price

    Cons: Reliability and workmanship

    Advice: Look elsewhere....

    I owned a 1999 Sunfire GT Convertible. It was clearly the worst car I have ever owned. Within months of buying it the roof malfunctioned, the windows were forced out of alignment, and soon thereafter the electrical problems kicked in. I finally got a lemon buy-back on mine, but I have heard nothing but horror stories from other owners of 1999 Sunfires. In fact, a popular consumer reporting group gave the 99 a 1 out of 5 for reliability. Maybe they have gotten better..... but maybe not.
