Default Now that I've had her a while! I LOVE this car!

I could not have picked a better car for my 10 year old beater go to work car. This is by far, the nicest, smoothest, coolest function packed car I've ever had.
I've spent some bucks fixing a few things, and with the help from all the guys here solved some problems and saved money doing it.
I found out how stability control works, and man-that is some neat stuff gong on. Heated leather-man-to die for! heated mirrors! wow- potential wiring electrical issues? WOWY ZOWY! lets hope it continues to be fairly trouble free.

It'* been a great car so far-so great in fact, it'* hard to keep the boost gauge down- man, lot of power that moves a lot of plush riding weight. Who would know how well they perform! and why in the world could a company that can build a car like this not survive? I just don't get it. I don't even care to see what comes out of Government Motors again.

Cheers! Len

It is a great car. But so many don't believe it, until they own one.

Yes i agree 110 Percent, I used to be a GP guy had owned 4 of them in the past, and was unaware of the bonneville even existed, until I saw my first one on CL, I immediately fell in love with the styling and when I drove one it was love at first Gas pedal. I love the interior styling much more then the GP now. I was looking for power and luxury both and found them both in the Pontiac Bonneville!!! I wouldn't go back to a GP after having owned a Bonnie. It is really ashame that Pontiac is no longer, they made the best of both worlds power and excitement in a car, RIP Pontiac!
