1992 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3.8L V6 from North America
Not your average run-of-the-mill sedan
Door locks failed.
The driver's side door lock likes to jam up, so you have to jam the key in. It got replaced once under warranty, then when it started doing it again, I went out and spent $50 on keyless entry. Problem solved.
Also the tranny stumbles going up hills, you have to either let off the gas or push down to downshift. Not as big a deal as it sounds.
All in all, this is a great car. The 3.8L V6 has oodles of power, even though mine's only rated at 170hp (!). The supercharged version is even better. Let's just say that I'm 18 and have raced quite a few people with their Civics and Celicas and whatnot. The Pontiac kills their 4-bangers all the way up to the governor at 108mph.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hey, I was wondering about the sound system. Maybe you would know about it. I was told I could keep the head unit and hook up a changer to it with only purchasing an adapter cable (not using RF). If you know anything about the system, I would appreciate the advice.
If you could recommend any other sites for accessories on this particular car, that would also be helpful thanks.

For connecting a changer without using an FM modulator, I have no idea. I had the crappy tape deck and four speaker system; it was pretty bad.
Hope this helps.
