296,000 trouble free miles and still going! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/09/2008. Trim: 1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: I bought this car in 1997 with 17,000 miles. It had been a leased car previous. It now has 296,000 miles. It has been an incredible car with very few repairs. It needs a new fuel pump now after 190,000 miles which I am thinking about replacing. It still runs although not as smooth due to the need of a fuel pump. Just wondering how many more miles this engine/transmission will do. I have to admit I have not been great about anything such as transmission oil changes, flushing the radiator or any of those types of services. However, I do change the engine oil every 5000 miles. I also change the fuel filter after 50,000 miles.
Cons: There is only one thing I would change on this car and it is the arm rest. We had only had it a short time when it would no longer latch. The whole arm rest eventually fell right off. My mechanic did tell me the plenum is leaking and should be replaced. Just have to decide if I've maxed out my miles or if I should fix it since it has been an absolute gem of a car!
Overall review: It is a fantastic car and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a nice, comfortable ride with no problems.
