"As far as handling and drive-ability and economy.....the Bonneville can't be beat....I have owned several new cars over the years....and they could not compare to the ride and quality of this auto that I purchased two years ago with around 100k miles for only $700.00 from the original owner.....Other than normal maintenance the only part I have replaced is a belt tensioner and water pump"
Cons: "Cup holders in front doors, no place to add more"

"This car is reliable, and handles well. The only downside is the cup holders in the FRONT DOORS. Not convenient. Too many beverage spills. If you forget your drink in the door cup holder, and shut the door, you'll have a BIG mess to deal with! There is no place to put additional after-market cup holders, either. Annoying, but I've gotten used to moving my beverage to the BACK cup holders (in fold-down middle sit). Most of the time."
Pros: "Runs solid. Used same mechanic since I bought it"
Cons: "No CD player"

"I have had good service with this car. No major problems. Regular oil changes, new tires when needed and general maintenance regularly. The spoiler is oxidized but other than that the paint job is good for a car this age. Interior has been taken care of. A good cleaning and it will look like new. Mileage has historicaly been 26-28 hiway and about 22 city. Mostly driven by myself so interior is not abused. Very good car."
"I've owned this car for 20 years and it's required very few repairs of consequence. [I had to replace the AC a few years ago, but that's about it.] It has been highly reliable for 2 decades. I've always gotten 30-31 mpg on the highway -- better than most cars made today. Leather interior is critical to keep the car looking like new. I wish Pontiac was still in business. I would buy another."
"The only flaw I've found in this car is that when they designed it, they forgot how much power this car has and when it accelerates, it can throw rocks...which end up scraping the paint off the undersides near the rear tires.
It is the most comfortable car I've ever owned; I'll keep it until it (or I) drop. Six-way power driver and front passenger leather seats, heads-up display, front-wheel drive, independent wheel power for ease in snow and ice and don't forget the compressor in the trunk!"
