It does not give me a headache like previous cars I owned.
I am not ashamed to pick up my girl in it. (Like i cared anways )
The size is deceiving. It does not look like it has all that room from the outside, but it does.
Easy to wash and parallel park, compared to other sedans at least.
Not a popular car to modify (respectively speaking) so it stands out more around town.

At first i fell in Love with Bonnevilles was when i saw my friends brothers 91 SSE fully loaded with sunroof and such, at that time i was around 17, and then when i took a ride and saw all the pretty buttons and displays i said to myslef thats gonna be my first car. And it was, altough not sse but a 91 SE. After two years when i started to look for a new car a i knew that my second car will be a bonneville and it is a 92 SSEi. And i love it!

9-way adjustable power seats(driver and passenger)
8-speaker stereo
Digital compass right next to the tach
Driver info center that actually makes sense
BOOST GUAGE!!!
Auto-dimming rear-view mirror
Huge trunk

Not to mention the fact that I'm 6', 280lbs, and finding a car that I fit in, that goes this fast is a glory you little people will never understand
Would you believe that I drove from Columbus to Zanesville(about 55 miles) and my RPM never once went over 2k?! THAT'* low-end torque for you! Oh, yeah, 31mpg fuel!

Pontiac'* slogan for the Bonny is as accurate as I could be:



I too fell in love with someone else'* Bonneville when I was 17-18, a brand-new white 1992 SSEi... although it had those hideous same-body-color wheels, I was hooked nontheless. I don't think there has EVER been a sedan body style as unique as the 92-99 (especially when accented with chrome torque stars ), and I am thrilled with the 1998 SLE I now own!

SSEI rules !! I agree.

Another reason to love the Bonnie, all the gadgets and toys to play with. Our cars come with standard toys that are not even options on a lot of other cars.
