1992 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi 3.8L supercharged from North America
Smooth, fast luxury
I've gone through 5 alternators in 100,000 kilometers.
Stock stereo kicked the bucket after 60,000 kilometers. The CD player quit working. I sent it to DELCO to get fixed, and they estimated the repairs at $300, so I bought a stacker instead.
I just needed to replace the plug wires, ignition coils, and the ignition control module. All at 100,000 kilometers. Not that much though.
Other than the alternator problems, everything has been great. Tons of power, and fun to cruise in as well. I still love it after 100,000 kilometers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My first Bonneville SE, purchased new in 1988,suffered from a soft rear suspension. I installed overload springs and made it handle better than a Firebird! I now have a nice 92 SSEI and it needs the same. It seems GM does this to most of its larger cars. Otherwise I like it very much. Pete B. NORTH BAY ONTARIO CAN.

I've had alternator problems too. The mechanic said it was an intake manifold oil leak that was dripping on it and frying it or something, but once that was repaired, I've had no issues since.
