Review of the 1997 Pontiac Bonneville

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Full-size comfort, good value, excellent powertrains, can equip SE like go-faster SSEi for less

  • Cons

    Dated overdone styling

  • What's New for 1997

    Changes for 1997 are few. Supercharged Bonnevilles get a new transmission, a new Delco/Bose premium sound system is optional on the SSE, and the EYE CUE heads-up display has a new motorized adjustment feature. Two new exterior colors, a new interior color and a new interior fabric visually liven up the aging Bonneville.

Love my bonneville ssei

Vehicle: 1997 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi 4dr Sedan

Have had my 1997 Bonneville SSEi for 8 years. Have had six Corvettes and was a fighter pilot so tend to like fast cars. The supercharged six is simply amazing. Great mileage (30 MPG + on highway)plus more than enough power for everyday driving. At 7 seconds 0-60 MPH according to the magazines, it is actually faster than some of my mid- 70's Corvettes. The car seems faster since the power band is broad and instantaneous due to the supercharger. Engine has been flawless since owned. A nice daily driver, I like the real Heads-up Display and good instrumentation. The 8 Bose-speakered stereo is the best factory car stereo I have ever heard. Nothing has even come close. Great car.

This car was great and fun to drive. It was one of the most comfortable cars to drive and had a lot of power.

Great car to drive! Powerful and still good fuel mileage! With a few Mods, Upgraded exhaust, Cold air intake, upgraded Supercharger pulley and PCM upgrade, Car is even more powerful ( up to about 290 HP.) And driving normal still gets great MPG. Love it !

keep the boost gauge at -5 and the gas mileage is pretty good. also ease the power on into boost for the best launch of the start.

FUEL GUAGE NEEDED REPLACING. ALWAYS SHOWED FULL UNTIL IT WAS FINALLY EMPTY. PERFORMANCE IS OUTSTANDING. FUEL ECONOMY IS FANTASTIC FOR THE POWER RATIO. VERY STAISFIED.
