fold down seats never would have been an issue for me, but i do have them now if i ever need them i guess...

A think a "door ajar" light wouldve been a nice simple add-on...i know they lock automatically and stuff, but kids in the backseat can figure out how to unlock them fairly easily. I still remember the time my mom borrowed my car and had my little sis in the back and she jumped out and my mom still had intentions of moving...my mother almost ran over her! that wouldve been awful, and my mom had no idea the door was open...why? no chime, no light
Yeah It would have been a good idea if all bonnies had it... A friends 87 Bonnie had the door Ajar... Showed what door was open...

We had a 90 accord EX, and my Friend had a 90 Accord DX.... Both of them had the Door Ajar on the pic of the car...

Just out of curiousity, did your 96 have the child lock saftey feature? I have used mine a few times to keep kids from escaping the back seat..

Bonnes with the DIC have the door ajar displayness. And my 94 has child locks so I assume a 96 would.

Yeah, I have child locks too. I don't use them because I don't haul kids or have any kids.

My '94 has a voltmeter.

This thread is funny, except 60/40'* and disc brakes...the options were pretty much found in some trim level some year.
Someone doesn't have a Volt meter?

Even me base LE has a volt meter... Hmmmm
the SSEi has the Boost thingy instead of the Volt Gague
I didn't know that.

I never have a problem with my cupholders, for drinks that big I use the ones that flip out of the center armrest.

I don't have kids but the locks are still fun to use, watch people try to get out.

There'* an easy solution for that one. Don't drink 32oz of Coke!!

Seriously though, that'* a lot of VERY bad-for-you coke...

But anyways, I could understand the frustration of spilling such a large amount of liquid in your car.

these are just some things that irritate me when I drive either of the Bonnevilles and because I'm used to driving my car...

The Bonnevilles don't have rain-sensing windsheild wipers
You cannot turn the headlights off (like others have mentioned.) I don't know why pontiac didn't use the stalk that had AUTO.HEADLAMPS.PARKING.OFF. instead they left the auto off.
To turn the dome lights on, you have to push the dash dimmer **** in so it pops out, then you have to twist it. On the rora, the switch is next to the sunroof buttons and you slide it to the right to turn the dome lights on, leave it in the center for normal operation, or slide it to the left to turn the dome lights off if the doors are opened. (only the floor lights will turn on, instead of all of them.)

I hate the cruise control on the Bonneville. Even more so, it doesn't have a CANCEL button!!!

Yeah Jack, that'* the fun part, is watching people trying to get out. I just say, "You'll have to jiggle it a bit and say Open Sesame!" then it'lll open.

I don't mind the Cruise control not having a cancel button, why do you need that if you're coming up to some one really fast and you need to slow down, surely you're not going to push cancel and hope the car slow down enough.

I don't even mind not having some stuff that Custom 88 mentioned.

You know what, AWD should have been available on all models of Bonnevilles, if GM spent the time and the bucks to develop a rear steer for Bonnevilles, why not AWD. Now with supercharger and a AWD, that means a quicker cleaner launch.
