1999 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan
Bought this car August 2009 w/ 127k miles as my first car.
Now has 145k and still purrs like a kitten.
Ride is amazing; like driving on a cross between a couch and a cloud. Power is great - I do a lot of highway driving and this car is way better than my mother's old Stratus. Really nice looking too - paint has held up well for being outside its whole life and the chrome rims make it look really sharp. Seats are very comfortable and the leather has held up really well considering the age.
Awesome sound system.
Replaced EGR valve and fuel pump, but we expected that one when we bought it (really common on these), but other than that it's only been regular maintenance.
Gets great gas mileage w/o sacrificing power
Has held up really well for 13 years/145k miles
Great ride and really sharp, yet classy looking car - drives like a Buick but looks like a high end Pontiac
Comfy for long drives
Steering wheel audio controls
Digital climate control
Great sound system
Extremely reliable - we bought this used and have only done regular maintenance (besides fuel pump). My father is meticulous about his cars, yet the '02 Dodge Stratus my parents have owned since new has problems every 10K miles
Great for someone 6ft1 - lots of legroom/headroom front and back
Glass headlights (no fogging)
Mean looking front end
Very big, safe car yet nimble
Storage console on ceiling
Really nothing major - the car is fantastic...just a few little things.
Cup holders are weird.
The ones in the doors are too large so when you close the door your drink goes flying.
The two in the pull down armrest in the back seat are too shallow to hold anything while turning.
Fuel pump goes on all of them
There was a leak onto the driver's side floor (after windshield was replaced, leak stopped)
Plastic is kind of cheap (very brittle ~ can't tell if it's from age or just the way it is)
Really nice car!!
