the engine.

Cons

the color and the road noise

1998 Pontiac Bonneville — I only hate it because it's not the car that I really want. Overall, it's a good car, I just think it's ugly and has a lot of road noise. The engine is the 3800 v6 that GM has had a LOT of success. If price is your only concern, go with a Bonneville, but if you want a more luxurious car that is quieter as you drive it, spring for a Buick.

The Best Car To Own Ever. — This 1998 Pontiac Bonneville, reaches 0-60 in 8 seconds and with it's powerful 3800 Series II 3.8 Liter V6 engine it hardly has any competition. Stock with 205 horsepower you can easily upgrade to around 230 horsepower with 240 ft/lbs of torque. It's loads of fun to modify.

Sick Wit It — Its pretty sick. The biggest car the pontiac ever made. Its crazy comfy and is giant but still looks good. The back seats huge. It has a 3800 series II 3.8 liter and gets up pretty damn good. Its a sleeper for sure. A lot of people in my town have bonnes but no one had leather, a CD player and rims haha. She handles pretty good but you have to remember that it is still a massive care. I love it. Good car to have.

Not Your Average Grandma Car. — These cars have a classic 90's look and. They were not made with allot of steel so allot of them rotted out in the northern states. Pretty good on gas millage and comfortable ride. The general quality of the car was pretty poor though.

Pros

It's fast as hell...for as big as it is.

Cons

Electrical nightmare

I Would Reccomend It To A Lot Of People. It's Built Super Safe And It Has A Great 3800 Series Motor! — This car accelerates like no other! I love the perfomance of my car. It has it's electrical issues, but it's a Pontiac and it has at least 50 pounds of wire under each seat. Mileage kinda sucks but it is supercharged...it's going to be below average. It's a blast. I love to get on it...too bad it's snowy outside and I can't.
