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.

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.
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!!!!!!!!!!

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!
