Pros

I'm sure it was a great car when it was new. It still looks fairly nice but there are quite a few rust spots.  

Cons

Rust and leaks.

To Much Maintenance. — It is the best thing I have ever driven, but that doesn't say much. It leaks coolant, ATF, and oil. As long as you aren't low on any of the leaking fluids, it runs great! But I think its time for something new.

Sleek Domestic Sport Sedan — I love the way it handles and the power is more than adequate for a car this size and the MPG is great on the highway. The 3.8 liter is great and was one of GM's best 6-cylinder engines for many years.

Pros

This car is awesome in that it gets really great gas mileage.

Cons

The rattling and occasional squeaky brakes.

All Around Good Car — Despite one month where everything seemed to go wrong for this car, it's been very reliable. It gets from point A to B and only needs gas maybe once a week, depending on the demands. Usually it can average 300 miles before having to fill the tank. Acceleration is perfect for a car like this, especially when the need to 'gun it' really isn't necessary. Braking and handling are good too. It rattles some around 55-60 mph, but it's not too bad.

Love It. — Good acceleration for being such a heavy car. Car rides well and haven't had a problem with it yet. Gas milage is decent and overall is a blast to drive. I'm the third owner and the car has 110000 miles and is still running well.

01 Bonneville — Majority of parts are low quality, and all gm intake maifold gaskets on all new vehicles leak after so long. The tranny needs tune ups every once in a while i think too or just put high perforformance stuff in it. It looks great when i wash it. Ha ha I'm a detailer.

About My Pontiac Bonneville "bonne" Sle — Performance: Great! It really goes when you hammer down the gas pedal and it sounds AWESOME! Thank god for factory supercharged V6 engines! It handles great and it grips the road quite well! Build Quality: It is great! No problems with it so far! The leather seats are very comfortable and the dash board is cool looking! Except, what I don't like is the big ol' Traction Control button right between the cup holders and the automatic shifter. They could have put it somewhere else. Appearance: Looks aggressive and classy at the same time on the outside. Love the front and rear bumper with that wing on the back, along with the dual exhaust! :D The interior is great! Very comfortable to drive and it has 6 way power seats with a sunroof! Cost of Ownership: It cost me less than $30 to fill it up! I filled it up last week and I still don't have to fill it up yet! It gets great gas millage! It can go about 450 miles on a full tank! Fun Factor: Fun to drive! It handles very smooth for a FWD! I would recommend this car to a friend!
