2005 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

This is a large, safe, 4 door sedan built by the UAW in Michigan. It is based on GM's G platform which also underpins the Buick Lucerne and Cadillac DTS, and it is lighter than both of these cars. Most of the shortcomings of the Bonneville have been addressed in GM's newer models, but if you can live with them, the price is incredible.

Favorite Features

Old-school tires, rear seat air conditioning, bulletproof powertrain (GM 3800 series II and 4-speed transmission), decent mileage, orange dash lights, good acceleration and handling (especially low end torque), cup holder fits Big Gulp perfectly, big windows, good visibility, solid platform and ride

Suggested Improvements

Plasticky interior, dated wedge styling (still cool IMO), buzzing in door due to speaker vibrations, brakes squeal, unsupportive seats, 5-position non-telescoping steering wheel, no side airbags. When the Bonneville comes back I'd like to see it on a large RWD platform with a sexier engine, trans.
