1998 Pontiac Bonneville

very enjoyable ride
While i loved the looks of this car and the comfort it fails hard on reliability as it has intake gasket problems.This is because GM decided to be cheap and make the whole intake system plastic.It can fail at anytime and leave you on the side if the road thinking it s your head gaskets.

1994 Pontiac Bonneville

Trim: SE
by Esmond on 10-16-2012
comfortable full-size sedan
- comfortable and spacious interior
- base model suspension is soft and provides a good ride, but handling is compromised with the base suspension (SSEi model significantly improves handling while still providing good ride/handling balance)
- decent on gas for a big car
- interior and exterior styling were strong points for the Bonnevilles
- was very reliable; cannot go wrong with the bulletproof 3800 series V6 engines from GM
- the SE was not a bad car for basic big-car transportation, but if you wanted a bit more luxury and sport - you must opt for the SSEi, SSE, or even the SLE models

1995 Pontiac Bonneville

Trim: SSEi
by Esmond on 10-15-2012
Big car luxury and performance
The SSEi may have been a 'boat', but it was a boat with a powerful engine, aggressive/sporty styling, living room comfort and space, and enough features to make the most tech-savvy people from IT happy (based on standards in the mid-90's).

This car was comfortable, reliable, and fun to drive with the 3.8L supercharged V-6. The styling was not for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

And for a big car, it actually handled with some authority -- it didn't pitch and roll like a Buick or Oldsmobile did. Through curves and turns you could feel the weight of the vehicle, but the body roll was well controlled.

Very solid car - highly recommended.
