1983 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8L V6 from North America
Underrated GM Classic
Gas tank needed replacement.
Exhaust needed replacement.
Power lock and rear defrost switches needed replacement.
Vinyl top is just starting to crack.
Great car, another underrated old GM automobile!
Almost as comfortable as my Caprice, rides nearly as smooth and seats are as comfortable.
V6 has surprisingly good acceleration, but has a tough time on hills.
Nice styling, proportions are just right.
It's like a better appointed version of the 78-83 Chevrolet Malibu.
Analog tuning on stock AM/FM stereo is just as precise as a digital radio; I can receive stations right next to one another without interference.
Sound system is very good too.
Just a nice little car, a good car if you like to do repairs yourself.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

August 2006- Still have the car and have been using it daily. Only problems seem to be with the brakes, I have had to have several of the lines replaced (which was surprising since the car hardly has any rust) and the rear wheel cylinders. This is the only problem I have had with it, it runs like a top otherwise. I plan on having the system completely redone and then I'm sure it'll be just as reliable as my Caprice. These cars are built to last, with timeless classy styling and smart engineering.
