2002 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Having been in a Grand Prix GTP I got used to the power of the supercharged 3800. This car is equally impressive and maintains 26+ MPG highway if I behave. Good traction ... 60K miles on original tires. Leaking spoiler (3 times to dealer)a nagging issue with no other quality issues. Brakes replaces after 24K and I am not hard on them. Dealer said it's normal for this car. Good stlying, comfortable on highway and a blast on side roads. Looks like Pontiac is moving to smaller sized cars so being a big guy this may be my last Pontiac unless they change their focus. High end stereo and all the goodies make this a fun car to own. Great tire wear ! Some balance issues as tire wear though.

Best Features

Head up display, premium radio and supercharged engine complete the driver experience.

Worst Features

Fix the leaking trunk spoiler problem! Cup holders should be better positioned to allow for driver AND passenger to use them at the same time. Add audio console for rear passengers to use headphones or other channel than driver ... other GM units offer this option. Add rain-sensing wipers too.
