1996 Pontiac Bonneville SE 3.8 series 2 from North America
Great family car and even better sleeper..
The alternator went about a month and a half after I bought the car.
The mass air flow sensor died after 3 months of getting the car.
I love this car for many reasons.
The car is very roomy and Being 6'1" I definitely need the headroom and the leg room.
The radio could be better positioned though.
The car has good acceleration and handling characteristics.
The trunk is OK, but it gets soggy when it rains.
Transmission has a hiccup in it shifting from 1-2 but it is still strong and doesn't slip at all... its the original transmission.
The motor is starting to ping, but for and original block and heads I'd say that it has had a good run. I can still romp on it when those sub compact rice burners try to take me at the light.
After learning them about a big cars style and handling I continue onto the store to get the milk my wife asked for.
I love the car and its abilities. I bought a second salvage one just for the parts I plan on getting 300 thousand out of this car and have every confidence in doing that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
