2002 Pontiac Bonneville Overview

Representing GM's sportier line of cars, Pontiac's stalwart has been the Bonneville, now over 40 years old and still going strong. The 2002 Pontiac Bonneville delivers minor changes, including a restyled front and rear end on the base SE trim, new 17-inch tires for the SE and SLE, a retooled center console and cupholders, and new badging and exhaust pipes for the SLE and SSEi.
Engine choices have not changed for the 2002 Bonneville. The SE and flashier SLE have a 3.8-liter, 205-hp V6 engine with 4-speed automatic transmission. The SSEi is the sportiest model with its supercharged 240-hp V6. All have dual front and side airbags and ABS brakes standard. A recent redesign in 2000 gave the 2002 Pontiac Bonneville a stiffer frame for better handling and control. Though just the base model, the SE comes nicely equipped with power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, remote entry, and a security system. The SSEi features self-leveling suspension, a digital information center that gives drivers warning, a heads-up display that allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road, anti-skid capability, power leather seats, and magnetic variable steering.

The 2002 Bonny seems to be a mixed bag. Owners love its expansive room for five, comfortable seats, peppy V6 engine (especially the supercharged) and its tight handling and responsive steering. Pickup and speed performance are excellent on the highway. Gas mileage is good for a full-size car and it drives like a much smaller sports car. The European-like styling is mentioned highly, as are the heated seats option and the convenient heads-up display feature. But the 2002 Bonneville seems to need a lot of repair work, including problems with the steering column and water leaks through the trunk and window seals. The cupholders are too close together and some owners find all the dash gadgetry too confusing. Less headroom than previous Bonnevilles is also bothersome. Drivers report wind noise and body shudder.
