2005 Pontiac Bonneville GXP 4.6 V8 from North America
This car was plagued with problems from brand new, and they continue to this day. Do not purchase a GM product. After having several, I got disgusted and started buying Fords. After hearing that GM had fixed their problems, I bought this car brand new, and loved it. It did not take long to realize that this is the worst car that I have ever had! Complete junk! Now GM is claiming to have fixed their problems again, beware!
Starter went bad.
Intake crossover gaskets leak, that's what I think killed the starter.
Power steering lines developed a leak and were spraying fluid everywhere. The pump also went bad.
Front bearings and hubs went bad.
Water pump went bad.
Easily breaks engine & transmission mounts.
Oil cooler lines & valve cover gaskets leak.
Gauges do not work.
Interior floor in back seat fills with water.
Radio lights burned out.
Driver control center went bad.
Continuously blows fog lamps and headlights. Has been rewired with new upgraded harnesses and wiring by dealer, but lights continue to blow.
Seat heater fried.
Blower motor fried.
Side cladding pops loose. Is simply held on with two sided tape.
This car is very tempting. Very fast with Northstar V8. Looks sexy too.
Don't be fooled. You will regret your purchase.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Not everyone's experience is like yours. I have never had anything but GM products since '01, and they have all been very reliable. I have had 1 Chevy, and currently am on my 4th Buick (which I have only had for a few weeks). I will admit I don't put a lot of miles on my cars (usually under 35,000 miles), but the first 2 cars had over 100,000 miles when I got them. I have never had a major engine or transmission issue with any of them, and really like the styling and comfort of GM products, especially when compared to more popular import makes.
