I'm 17 and this is my first car. I worked hard and saved my money and 850 dollars later I was driving home in a 1990 Pontiac Bonneville. Now after owning this car for almost a year it has done nothing but been good and preformed great I put in probably 300 bucks into it and another 400 "nitpickiness" and Ill have myself a car that'll get me going for a while. The ignition module box went bad but after a 130 dollar replacement I was driving again with no worries of my car randomly dieing on the road when i stopped. This car is great, very roomy, good sound and speakers, just not an average car a teen looks at but none the less I couldn't ask for more.

I bought this bonneville back in December used from a friend who owns a used car lot.
Car is Rather reliable, getting almost 31 mph on highway (covered 300 miles on a half tank of gas). Idles very quiet, and one of the few old cars that cold-starts well.
I have had to replace the rear brake lines, fuel pump and ignition control module and the paint is fading.
Very clean w/no viewable rust and undercarriage has held up well.
Transmission shifts very well, and at 70 mph, the transmission holds the engine to a modest 1900 rpm, great for highway travel.
Overall a great car.

1990 LE, bought it in 94 with 40k. its now 2010 with 173k. always dependable and a sharp looker. wish I could post pics. Looks as good as it did when if came off the showroom floor. have put money into it repaint and sound system, but mechanically very sound. They have plenty of get up and go. very smooth, quiet and sexy design, one of their best. I swear by this car. Old enough to handle most of repairs/maintenance yourself and mileage is fantastic; with mods (simple ones) I'm getting 35 highway. Hard to beat that. But it does seem to eat up power antennas for some reason. With the sound system and new paint I wont let it go for under $5K.
Front body/frame structure is redesigned. SSE gets new grille. LE and SE get new taillights. Remote keyless entry is new option. Power windows come with driver's express-down window. SE gets rear spoiler, fog lights and power trunk release standard. Alloy wheels are new. Bench seat is replaced by a 55/45 split bench.
