I'll miss this car

1998 Pontiac Bonneville SE 4dr Sedan


I bought this car with 44,000 miles on it and will be selling it at over 203,000. This car has provided me with safety (through 2 deer accidents), reliability (only one major engine problem- a gasket recall) and comfort (the a/c went but everything else still works fine). The performance was never top notch but it could more than get out of its own way (and past the occasional highway fool). Some rust here and there but I still walk out, stop and admire the way it looks; the lines of the car never get old. Unfortunately, the signs of old age have arrived all at once. Problems with the gas tank and filler and some big maintenance hurdles. Don't know what to buy now. Too bad GM axed Pontiac.

Best Features

The metallic deep red paint and the curved body style. Oh, and the rear spoiler.

Worst Features

If I ever meet the person who designed the trunk lid (the one that drains all the water directly into the trunk when opened), I will sock him or her right in the nose.
