Previous page

Introductory Year. As with most first year GM products, some flaws were present and improvements needed. Coupe, Sport Coupe, and SE models offered. 2.5-liter 4-cylinder only engine option. 4-speed manual or 3-speed automatic with locking torque converter were available transmissions, 4-speed manual was available with optional "performance" final drive ratio which improved 0-60 times from about 12.5 seconds to around 11. Optional Indy edition featured white paint with red trim, red on gray interior, performance final drive ratio, and "aero" body work (nearly identical to an '85 GT's). Most common year for engine fire problems. Causes were insufficient oil capacity, flawed connecting rods shipped from the Saginaw factory, and improper placement of some engine bay components. Recall issued, all '84 Fieros have been serviced and corrected according to Pontiac Motor Division.
