Default Biggest Bonneville Gripe??

Anyone have a gripe about their Bonneville? Personally, on my 96- the front cupholders. Put an open can of pop in the car door and shut the door, what a mess. What were the engineers thinking there?

I have the same gripe. Those can holders are useless.

The door pockets are too narrow to be much of use for anything.

the car display in the dash,(mine is digital) constantly goes out then randomly come back on like there is nothing wrong with it, also lost of sensors are broken like the rear light sensor is broken and the coolant sensor is broken so every time i start the car it tells me they are either out or broken

My gripe is the window regulators on the 2000+. A metal cable held in by a little plastic tab? Really? Its absurd

OOOhhhhh, thought of another one-

No power window locks. Never fails whenever the kids are in the backseat- at least one of them starts messing with their windows

Front cupholders, Plastic intake manifold, to much plastic where metal should be, crappy set up for spark plugs, plus power steering pump. Trunk hinges...

I'm gonna have to go with the flow.
The cupholders are AWFUL. Back when mine was still alive, I spilled countless drinks.

Also, not that this is a problem with everyone'*, but mine literally ate tires.
I think the frame might have been bent :[

And, last but most important, mine had a CONSTANT dinging from the "Check Gauges" light.
When I say constant, I mean as soon as it heated up, it would ding until I turned it off or floored it haha.

Despite all that, I loved that car :[
