Pros: "Great gas milage, Fun to drive, Classy looking car"

Cons: "None!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Bought this car in Texas a year ago and have put almost 40,000 miles on it, with the exception of replacing tires and rear factory air shocks this car has been trouble free! Drives like a sports car, gets great gas milage and is a real joy to drive on long trips. This is the SLE model with all of the bells and whistles except for the heads up display option. This is the third front wheel drive pontiac i have owned including a 2006 Grand Prix GTP (which sits in my garage most of the time) Thanks Pontiac !!!! (i wish Pontiac was still being made)"

Pros: "Comfort and dependabliity"

Cons: "Typical GM "flaws"-LowerIntake gaskets-plenum-Dexc"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought the car used, 8/2013 with 58K miles on it. It had the "typical" GM problems. 1)failed Lower Intake Manifold Gaskets 2)DexCool coolant 3) Failed plenum due to poor EGR design. Had the failed parts replaced and the cooling system flushed. GM fixed the design flaws in the 3800 starting in 2007. We've put 17K miles on the car without a single problem after the "typical" GM problems were repaired. The car rides and drivers like a dream for an old man and an old car. I love my old Bonneville. I wish GM still made it. GM doesn't make anything in the 2015 models that my wife and I can easily enter or exit. The only reasons the car doesn't get 10's all the way across are the 3 design flaws and the lack of cup holders (petty complaint), small glove box (petty complaint), and the decrease in rear leg room from the 92-99 Bonneville. We put 305K original miles on the last Bonneville we bought new in 1991. It doesn't run any more because a "mechanic" "repaired" a bad throttle body."

"I purchased my dream car a year ago, my favorite feature is heads up displace which puts my speed and radio on the windshield, love this car and hate to sell it but i got medical bills and need to be driving a cheaper more fuel efficient vehicle. This car was well taken care of when i purchased it and i still have a case of oil filters and some censors that come with the car for anyone who would wanna work on the car them selves."
