We all obviously love our cars, we wouldnt be members of this forum if we didnt right? Unless of course you just joined cause your car has nothing but problems.

Anyway. What dont you like about the Bonneville?

I think the 108 top speed is extremely lame. My moms Dodge Durango goes 115+, My moms Corolla goes 110+ my friends Civic can hit 115+, All those cars feel like total crap at those speeds, Bonneville feels great then bang limiter. I know its not safe but It would be nice to have a better top speed. At least intense could fix that.

Stupid Plastic intake on non supercharged cars.

Super Charger kit by zzp taking forever

I wish It had a better trunk design. 1 water leaks inside if it rains and 2 I wish they designed the back to look good without a spoiler.

- Cupholder location and design in 87-91 was lame. The two in the front are small and are positioned perfectly to be hit by both passengers elbows. The cupholders in the back aren't deep enough to hold anything.
- Weak window motors.
- Clearcoat peeling (bad in this gen).
- De-lamination in the tail lights.
- Not great on gas.
- The fact that you can't pick the direction of the airflow on the ECC in this gen is incredibly annoying. I think that lasted until '95 or something like that?
- Water gets into my trunk.

TOO MANY BLIND SPOTS!!! SMALL Side view mirrors, ALL the bonnevilles that i owned and all the driver seat butt cushion are so sunken in so low it feel like i am sitting on the floor. No heated seat option and they waited too late to bring the V-8 motor back.

cupholder and my water leak. Other than that, I am pretty pleased with the car and like it more and more each time I look at it.

my only complaint is the cup holders. Other than that I really like the features of my car. I've had her for almost 5 years now and she has been a wonderful, loyal, dependable car. I've only had minor maintenance issues. The only thing recently is the a/c problem but I know the cause of that and it was human error.
