Review of the 2001 Pontiac Bonneville

  • Pontiac bills the Bonneville as "Luxury with Attitude." That's an accurate description, given its basis on Cadillac's Seville platform and available 240-horse supercharged V6 engine. If traditional Pontiac styling twists your crank, and you want a large sedan packed with performance and features, the Bonneville is your kind of ride.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Loads of gee-whiz features, head-turning styling.

  • Cons

    Stout V6 in a segment that demands a V8, nameplate lacks snob appeal of luxury imports.

  • What's New for 2001

    Heated seats are available on the SE and SLE, and Ivory White is a new color for the year. OnStar telematics with a one-year membership is optional on the SE but comes standard with the SLE and SSEi.

Bonneville's are the best

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

This is my third Bonneville. I love them. The SLE model with leather and heated seats and moonroof and remote start and the list goes on. I have owned it since 149,000 miles and now have 190,000 4 years later. GREAT car. Now I finally need valve cover gaskets. Not too shabby. I would buy another in a heartbeat. If you are considering one just do carfax and see what problems "it" has had. If it looks clean, then buy it , you wont regret it!!!!!!!!!!

Worst car i've ever owned!!

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car used with low miles. LOVED the power and pep of the engine. but in a little over 30 days both back window motors broke at the same time. Then my gas and oil gauges quit working, the gas compartment hinge got stuck all the time, constantly replaced head/taillights, trunk leaked, transmission started shifting hard, had problems with front end alignment alot so new tires were needed more often than they shouldve been, front cv joint/axle replaced twice, and bc the gas gauge didnt work it constantly made the "warning" ringing sound. Was embarrased to be seen driving this. . .worst piece of crap ever!




Very happy!

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Bought this car used and have been very satisfied. Gets great gas mileage. Had the transmission rebuilt, but was worth it to me because I wanted to keep the car. Other small, fairly inexpensive mechanical problems but its a used car and things go wrong.




Not even 45 days

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this used car about a month ago and have had nothing but problems. The car have been more in the dealerships presents than mine. I've had 4 speed senors & fuel injectors put in, a new dash cluster which part of the lighting is burned out, a new radiator not to mention the master switch for the windows doesn't work, nor does the passenger mirror & driver side seat warmer. Hear comes the big one the engine is finished, over. But I love the car, what it stays for if that makes any sense. Otherwise, the car runs very well much power.




Great car

Vehicle: 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have used this car primarily for work and put between 30,000 to 40,000 miles per year. My 2001 Bonneville currently has 157,000 and still drives like it is new.
