Overall,a Great American Sedan, Great Cruiser — I bought this car after my 02' Chrysler Concorde blew its motor at 66K. I have a friend who holds a auto dealers license and he had just came back from auction with a Bonneville. Artic white, loaded, and 72k on the clock . I could'nt ask for a better car for the 5k I paid for it. The only thing I don't care for is the air adj. shocks in the rear. I think they are shot for the ride is not as good as I think it could be. Replacements are'nt that much $ ,perhaps that will do it.

Great Beginner Car, With A Cult Following — It's a great car with gobs of power and plenty of modding potential. Great stopping power and stellar looks. Not much in the aftermarket for appearance, but creativity isn't stopping that. These cars make great sleepers since everyone thinks that it's a granny car because it's a Bonneville

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great All Around Full Size American Sedan — The car has a great feeling. it is my second bonneville and the performance is definitely acceptable. the bullet-proof 3800 can def pull this hefty car forward at a moderately brisk pace. the gas mileage isnt perfect, but its great for a big car. very sporty looking with a bit overdone inside, but its that excess i fell in love with with my first 95. if you want a big american car with a soul this is the way to go! it may not be as sporty as the europeans, but it also wont break the bank to repair.

Nice Ride — The only thing I don't like about this car is it's not a FORD I like it on trips it's comfortable and fun to drive. wish it had a super charger but it runs ok for a GM product. My wife fell in love with it when she seen it

Good Car To Own — Pretty good car. Has been pretty good. When you get over 100K , it can start to dig into the wallet for repairs. Problems with tire rods and wheel bearings are kinda prevalent. A word to the wise, do not use any other than GM catalytic converter b/c it will cause problems if you use aftermarket parts.

My Bonneville — Great car. Does everything from going to work, running errands to great road car to drive up north or anywhere else. Problem is that it's getting old. Is not made anymore which is too bad. Now I don't know what to buy

Overall This Is One Of My Foavorite Cars I Haved Owned. — I bought this car because of the engine in it. I have heard only good things about the 3.8 liter v-6. Between me and my family members we have owned 4 differnet bonnelvilles and love them. The only downfall to them is some electrical issues, but that seems to be the only problem I have experienced with them.

Owner for 3 years, 2 months
