Unimpressed convert by Midwestern 20-Something on 03/05/2010. Trim: 2002 Pontiac Bonneville SLE, Owned 2 years.
Pros: There's 125,000 miles on our car, and it purrs going down the highway. It's got a relatively smooth and quiet ride, so all of the driving we do in a year has us appreciating that (about 20,000/year) We added a sub to go along with the factory sound system, and music really thumps in it. Those are about the only pluses I can think aside from the fact that it's all paid off.
Cons: Sitting in the driver's seat you'd think you're in a cockpit because there are so many gauges and switches (most of them unnecessary). For the size of car that it is, it really lacks leg room in all seats aside from the driver's seat (I'm 6'3"). We're at the stage where things are starting to go seriously wrong. The service engine light has been on consistently for the last few months, and after several fixes, we're looking at a new transmission. The gas mileage leaves quite a bit to be desired. It really drives like a boat, too. It would be a satisfactory car if you did a lot of highway driving, but if you drive mostly in the city, I would look for something else.
Overall review: It's an alright car, but be prepared to have to do more than a regular oil change. I've traditionally always driven foreign cars, so the "having to take it into the shop every few months" has gotten old. While most of the fixes aren't super expensive, they still cost money and that adds up. The likelihood of a long life for this car are pretty minimal. We also have a Ford SUV, so we're not anti-domestic, but I've owned several Toyota's that were closer to 300,000 than 200,000 (without any major issues), so it's a little frustrating to be seeing the end of the road happening with only 125,000 on this Bonneville.
