The best car i've ever

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan

This car is great except it leaks in the back floor board.When we bought this car we were not aware of the leaks. We have tried to figure out where it is coming from.If you buy this car ask the owners if it has had problems with leaking.

A keeper until it dies

Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan

We bought this car in 1999, with 5,000 miles on it and I knew it would be a keeper. We have had absolutely no serious problems with this vehicle in the 10 years we have owned it. Was considering trading it in until I realized that there was nothing really wrong with it except a leak from someone putting a new front window in badly. That could be fixed, and it would not cost 25,000 like a new vehicle would. I would miss all the room we have in it if I bought a new vehicle. So we will keep her till she just lays down and dies. She is still pretty, fast, clean, and people still notice this type of car. Sorry they are not making any more. A shame indeed.

This was our second Bonneville. The '99 was a big improvement over the '91 which we kept 8 years. We spent very little on it for repairs. We did maintain it as recommended. The ride is a bit stiff, but it has good handling and control in evasive maneuvering. It has good road feel and takes curves and corners extremely well. The seats are very comfortable. We had the optional 60/40 split bench seat and were the only ones of our friends who could take two other couples out to dinner in the same car. We averaged about 25mpg highway (65mph) with the overdrive (auto) transmission. Not shifting into OD would lower gas mileage considerably. We averaged around 20mpg around town.




Needs improvement

Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan

My wife bought this car before we met. It gets good gas mileage for a car of its size and I like the way it drives. However, she has had a lot of problems with it. There has been 3 recalls for her car. The security light used to come on and the car wouldn't start. The check gauges light comes on and off and the suspension is poor. I've had major repair done to her car twice in the past two years. Neither of us will buy another one due to the poor quality of the one we now have.




Leaking manifold on both 99

Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan

I have had 2 Bonneville's. A 94 & 99. I like the overall performance, and exterior, but I have put 3 manifolds on each car. The 3rd one of each being "out of warranty". I sure wish GM would spend the $2-3.00 to fix the problem, rather than just hide behind the "we can't warranty them forever" line. Breaks - like all of the 6 GM cars I have owned, are undersized, and warp very easy. I will admit that I have become a better break mechanic because of owning a GM. Unfortunetly for GM, they have lost my respect, and I would find it difficult to ever buy a GM product again, and that's a shame.




Good car!

Vehicle: 1999 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan

I just got my bonneville last year, and I already have about 95,000 trouble-free miles on it. At times the transmission acts a little strange, but I don't think it's a major problem. I'm a college student and love this car because it combines all the room I need with an engine and design that I can have fun with.
