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.

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

IMHO i would stay away from these cars as they are nothing but an electrical nightmare. The car is less then 9 years old and have spent ridiculous amounts of coin on it. The computer was replaced, and programed by dealer, with less then 120,000 km. and i still have the engine light going off. Dropped the transmission with less then 160, 000 mostly highway kms. Cracked the plastic plentum on the the engine with just over 130, 000km. Who thought of that, plastic on top of a hot engine! The design flaws are endless.

I have owned two Bonnevilles and 2001 and now and 04. My daughter owns an 04 also and my mom owns the 01. The cluster has stopped working on all three of them. My transmission fell out at 42,000 miles. I have had other problems as well. I paid a lot of money for my car and feel like I was cheated. Other than all of the problems, the car is beautiful and rides nice.

Car has plenty of power whenever needed. Gas mileage is consistantly at 28 MPG highway & 22 MPG city. Would recommend if steering problem fixed.




A seville by any other

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

A Seville by any other name... still rides as sweet - after removing the stock Firestone tires and replacing with Goodyear Assurance ComfortTreads. After driving 2005 Impalas, Park Avenues, and Honda Accord EX, I chose the 04 Bonneville for it's comfort, gadgets, moonroof, XM stereo, wide stance stability and heavy car feel. I drive a very curvy road at freeway speeds to and from work. The car sticks like glue now that I installed the new tires. The Firestones only had 12,000 miles on them and were down to 7/32 all the way around (they were noisey and slippery) the difference is like night and day. I drove this car on a 2,000 mile trip to Oregon and back with absolute comfort.




Great fun!!!

What a blast to drive! I traded an 02 Monte Carlo in for this car and quite honestly wasn't expecting to have the super fun that the MC afforded me but after driving this car for the last two weeks, let me assure you that it is MORE fun than MC, the longer wheel base must be the difference. Great acceleration, nice cornering, comfortable seating and my family of four fits in very nicely. Had a 92 Grand Prix for years and loved it, but I don't think I'll buy anything but Bonneville's from here on out!
