My girlfriend is thinking about buying a new car. She is currently looking at the mid 90'* Pontiac Sunfires. What is everyones opinion about this car? Whether it is the engine or the paint, I just want to know some thoughts that you guys and gals have. Thanks!

Couldn't find any Bonnies? I've seen a few wrecked ones, they look pretty safe.. Never liked th ride, And there'* a guy around here with a 10" in one, It sounds ok.

Its a good little car, I prefer the older sedans, the standard transmission coupes are speedy lil cars.

Decent puddle jumper car IMO

NO Bonneis. She likes my car, but it is to big for her she said. She wants a automatic with a convertible. IS the 2.4l that much better then the 2.2l engine? Or are they both pretty good? Since it is only a 4 banger, around what mileage is acceptable for a 96 or 95? Yea, I know the rule of thumb that every year should equal 12k miles, but is it different for a small car?
