Re: Got my car today!

Got it today with 4 miles on it. Power everything, sunroof, cruise, manual (only way to get a car) and Bright freaking yellow! Oh, and chrome hubcaps, free of charge. Total: $12,567. Cant argue with that. $4000 cash rebate and 5.4% for 72 months but will have it payed off befor then. My only complaint is that the car is kinda small inside but that is it. love the way it looks and 140 hp/150 torque helps to.

Now the mods begine.

btw, its actually easier to get the car seat out of the 2 door sunfire than the 4 door focus.

Will get pics tomorrow.

Re: Got my car today!

I wouldnt mod it till the warranty is up there stegy

I had a 2001 Honda passport that the lil woman was dying to tint. 6k miles and year later the tranny started to F**k up.

I sent it back with a good lemon law lawyer and settled before court. I needed to put the stock stereo back in before I returned the POS. Got a substantial amount of $$ back!

Go mod the lil womans car into a hi-po grocery getter instead and for gods sake dont go for 11krpm!!

11k rpm in a Sunfire. Feel the wrath


140hp, eh? Doesn't the 954 put out that much w/ a decent exhaust & tuning??!

Re: Got my car today!

well yeah, 140 isnt much but compared to the 100 my focus had, it is ALOT! christ, going through the rockies in that damn focus was next to impossible.

I also looked at the ion coupes but for $2000 more, I could have got a ion with A/C, thats it. thats when i decided on the sunfire, fully loaded for $2000 less!

Re: Got my car today!

Sounds like you made a good choice. Tough to beat the deals out there right now.

Good luck with the new ride Steg!

Re: Got my car today!

Is that a Duster in front of it? Or a Valarie? I want pics of that!!!!

The sunfire looks good. We bought my wife a Cavalier last Feb. They are basically the same car. She loves it. The seats don't hit me right. After a half hour I'm ready to get out. Other than that I like it. We got the aluminum wheels. It has all the ground effects of the Z24 w/o the bigger motor and insurance. I tried and tried to get her to get the 5 speed, but she wouldn't go for it. To this day I wish it was a stick. I had a 93 Cavalier w/ a 5 speed and it was great. My brother and I beat on that car and it just said 'Thank you sir, may I have another?' It was a little tank in the snow too. I miss that car. ahh the memories. But alas, its time was up. Wipers were on or off. No inbetween, and no lights on the passenger side worked. I had the exhaust strung up w/ clothes hanger. Door handle was busted (only I knew how it worked) and the rockers were rotting out. What a great little car though.
