Bonneville - a poor man's BMW

by
May 2, 2002 - Updated Sep 8, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Huge inside, strong engine, good fuel mileage, looks like a BMW if you squint.
Cons: Large outside, not as easy to park as my Grand Am.
The Bottom Line: This car may not be appreciated by people used to driving compact cars, but it really is a great automotive value for those who can appreciate it.

My Bonneville has been a good car for me. The air doesn't work, and the paint is going bad, but those are all things that come with age. The air can be fixed i'm sure, but I've not looked into it yet. Visually, the car is downright boxy by ... read more

You may ask, why are you writing an epinion on an 11 year old car, and who cares anyway? But I like to praise those few things in life that live up to or exceed your expectations. This car is one of those. We bought it in 1997, and it had ... read more

I own a 1989 LE

by
Apr 7, 2000 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: durability, fuel efficiency
Cons: none of the typical "used car blues"

I bought this vehicle several years ago after my wife had totaled our Cutlass. At the time, it had 45,000 miles on it and my wife was concerned that we wouldn't get that many miles (thinking 100,000 is close to the lifetime of an automobile) before we ... read more
