Review of the 2004 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 275-horsepower Northstar V8. 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, solid handling, powerful V8 in GXP, excellent crash test scores, large trunk.

  • Cons

    Average interior materials, overly complicated controls, poor resale value.

  • What's New for 2004

    The supercharged SSEi version of Pontiac's luxury tourer is no more, but a V8-powered GXP model makes its debut later in the model year. This most performance-oriented of Bonnevilles, the GXP, gets more streamlined styling (less cladding, that is) and comes with 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, leather/suede seats and a Monsoon sound system. Aside from that, chrome wheels are now available on the SE model.

Long live the bonneville!

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned this vehicle for less than 2 months (42,000 miles at purchase) and have already put 5,000 miles on it. (I have a '95 LeSabre that has 173,000 miles on it, and it is still running well.) I purchased it for less than half its original invoice, and it was virtually brand new. I'm no engineer, but the 3800 Series II engine is the best GM auto engine around. This sled drives like a go kart! Road feel and steering reponsiveness is incredible compared to the Buick. (Reminds me of the old Tiger Paw commercials.) Pontiac is winning me over every time I drive the Bonneville. Should the G- 8 live up to expectations, I will be ordering one as the '12 models arrive in about 4 years.




Judy's bonneville

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

My 2004 Bonneville is a dream car! It just seems to float over bumps in the road, yet corners very flatly. The crimson tintcoat paint is a sure winner, and the leathe rinterior is extremely comfortable and spacious.

Great car. No complaints.




A great value

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

This is my fourth Bonneville (1992, 1995, 2000, and 2004), which is the best yet. New sping and shock rates have made the ride as stiff an my 1999 MB C280 Sport. Great chassis, with good overall braking and straight-line numbers enable this offering to be a value class leader. My dealer (Perrine) is oustanding, which makes me want to buy from them. All in all, a great value in the $30,000 price range.




Fun car to drive

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I love to drive this car. It hugs corners and is super comfort on the inside. I have two kids so the child safety locks are a big plus. Has alot of extras that the grand prix doesn't. So do a comparison and see for yourself!




No big suv for this

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Bonneville SLE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I had a 1994 Bonneville and loved it. I thought I should go to an SUV because everybody else did, but I missed the sportiness of my Bonneville. The car is beautiful, sporty, and much better on gas than my SUV was. I will never go back! Who says when you are a mom you have to drive a boring sedan or a mammoth SUV?
