Can't Beat This Sedan! — I really can't complain to much about this car, especially comparing it to my 1993 Cadillac Eldorado. It may to have the power of that v-8 North Star but the maintenace cost are way less and it doesn't have the domino effect when it comes to breaking down that the Eldorado had. I wouldnt take the Bonneville to the strip but it has enough power and manuverability to get the job done out in the streets. The ergonomics inside are fantastic, especially when I can change the radio station from my steering wheel. When I roll down the street you know it's me with that exterior styling that is site for sore eyes!

Pros: Handles and drives as good as it looks!

Cons: Makes punk suckas hate you!

2001 Pontiac Bonneville — I've driven the car for 23,000 miles in the last year (120-143K) and I've only had to put a bearing on it. Acceleration is really close to that of my Trans Am. Gas mileage is around 22 city, 27 highway up to Fargo, and 31 highway down by St.Cloud/St.Paul.

Pros: Acceleration, Braking, Handling, Appearance, Fun

Cons: Heated seats - The seats bend too much and the heating coils break after about 5-10yrs of use.

Alot Of Power And Good Gas Mileage, Poor Handling. — I have had my bonne for 6 months and had a few small problems. Left rear window regulator, hard shift trans, and replaced both front hubs. The car has 135,000 on it and it still gets the gas mileage on the window sticker, 28 on highway and 18-20 in town. The car has alot of power to smoke the front tires stock but I am looking into some mods. But frist I have to solve the trans problem.

Luxury With Attitude! — Before we were married my wife worked at a car dealership. She saw this 2001 Bonneville come in on a trade and knew that I would want it. I did. The other sales peeps were not happy. I was. I had it a long New Years weekend to check out and test drive. It had everything I wanted; looks, amenities like heated seats, power everything, traction control, sun/moon roof, auto lights and OnStar. With 35k miles in 2 1/2 years the 3800 V6 engine ran smooth and had plenty of power. I had to have her. Car and wife. A very comfortable ride and has served me well for many of purpose and fun times. The car's definately a head turner. So's the wife.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty, fun to drive, roomy, a bit flashy. Love the sunroof!

Cons: Not seriously economical. Heated seat broke.
