They always get Mustangs or trucks here. I seriously can't think of a single instance of a male driving a Sunfire. I don't even think I've seen a Sunfire in the past 5 years lol.

One bus costs about as much as a brand-new Porsche 911. It's funny because governments spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on entire fleets and even more to fuel and maintain them but the majority of riders will never see that kind of money in their lives.

They are Shitbox 101 level. They're boring little blobs of car, but they'll be decently reliable with the most basic maintenance, especially if you get a base model with no gadgets to screw with the electrical. Parts are also dirt cheap because of GM's shameless platform prostitution.
If you want something fun to drive get something else, but if you just need a cheap set of wheels then go for it.

It's kinda weird to praise a "boring car" on its design but the aesthetic of the car is just right.

For the geeks that get triggered on the utterance of the word "aesthetic", the cars design elements work very well together imo and create an inoffensive look but also give it a rather dull charm that only a true appreciator of cars can understand.

Basically there's nothing wrong with it.

trust me mate, you probably havent driven those cars. In europe it's hard to get an older automatic car, and most people are very envious of it. Having to constantly shift that shit on a car that has a hard time getting to 50mph is not FUN. Especially when you are spending 90% of the time in traffic jams. Now let's think whats better, that twingo which rattles and shaked and you have to drop the clutch and hit the gear and release the clutch and all that shit for that shitbox to jsut move, or that boat which just whoofs if you dont push the accelerator too much?
