Powerful and sporty, but small interior

This review is for the GXP trim. I love driving this car, its powerful, handles well, and looks really sharp. The car itself is very large, larger than most SUV's and minivans, however the interior is a bit cramped for how large it is. Overall it is mostly comfortable and fun to drive.

Never let me down! GMSHOUILD HAVE PHASED OUT BUICK

Solid car! GM should never had phased out Pontiac it should have been Buick!! Seriously ..AS far as styling and performance pontiac had hit it on the money. For an example look at Dodge very innovative creative they brought back oldies but goodies with a present twist run perform great.. but no..... GM HAS TO GO THE CHEAP WAY C'MON GENERAL MOTORS GET IT TOGETHER

Nice clean car. Great price.

It is very clean and the interior is great especially for a 12 year old car. Low mileage. Only difficulty is with the guages. They fluctuate between working and not working.

very good fast fun car

requires a smidge more maintenance but is well worth it in the long run. The engine is powerful and gets decent gas mileage. extra roomy interior, i mean come on its a bonneville.

A hidden gem that is expensive to repair

I have owned a 2005 Bonneville GXP since 2012 (its currently 2017) and have thoroughly enjoyed driving it on a daily basis. The Northstar V8 has a lot of power and makes interstate driving smooth and enjoyable. The heavy duty sport suspension makes it handle well without being to stiff. The styling is fantastic and looks even better with tinted windows. The biggest problem is that, due to all of the GM Performance parts, repairs tend to be expensive and parts can be hard to find.

4.7

Classic American style and comfort.

In my opinion one to the best looking sedans GM ever made. Twelve years of trouble free reliable service. Very comfortable. Good traction and driving mannerisms. Excellent interstate cruiser. The SE could have a little more power for my taste but is more than adequate.

Grand marquis

It was a great experience of going to the dealership. I was treated with respect and they tried to make sure I lifted satisfied.

Most reliable car EVER

I owned a 89 Bonneville. At 400+K miles, it started having transition problems. Only work during the 400+K miles was brakes. Now have the 2005. No problems or work yet with 176K miles. I had gone to a dealership in 2000 to look for a used Bonneville. They had a lot of Cadillacs and Chevys, but no Pontiacs. I asked why. The dealer said that few people trade them in as they are such a reliable car, they keep them for a second vehicle. Wish they still made the Pontiac. I think the reason they quit making them was that they were so reliable that people didn't need to buy as often. Two other dealers at different locations said it was the best engine ever built. Smoothest ride ever and easy to handle.

Very reliable. Great style.

Has given me 10 years of reliable, trouble free service. Comfortable, great for long highway cruises plus 29-30 mpg to boot. For me, nothing today comes close style wise.
