    My friends grandpa just died, so he got his car, a 04 Pontiac Bonneville GXP. The car is practically brand new and spotless. I rode in it today, and the Northstar engine pulls the car hard...its plenty fast for a sedan. His had suede/leather interior, which was pretty nice. It came with factory 18" wheels which are pretty nice as well. Overall, its not a bad car.

    me too....but i think this is a sport sedan geared towards the older buyers.....even though they dont produce the bonneville anymore.

    :mamoru: its true though, although i do like the front end and the wheels. and the car is a huge improvement over the super plastic armor pontiacs of the last few years

    Its rated appropriately.

    Shitty interior, crappy fit and finish, and finishes basically bottom of its class.

    Oh, and FWD + V8 is the worst idea ever!

    Where are these ratings at? because i did somewhat of an inspection on the car.......and it seemed to be fine....yet i do agree, GM shouldnt have ever or continue to work with some similar interiors and materials in their top and bottom end cars.

    I'd consider that or the Grand Prix GXP if they weren't FWD.

    For those that have never owned a Pontiac, might I say I have a 96 Grand Prix sittin in the driveway, currently not used, with plenty of miles on the odometer. Car has been a BEAST. Runs with next to no coolant in the FL summers, has been absolutely beat on, and still starts right up when I get into it.

    There is some type of unknown hatred of Pontiacs on OT and dunno why. BTW, that Bonneville looks sharp. I would drive it, and I bet most people I know would too.

    The GXP does indeed look pretty good, but when you realize it's packing a FWD V8 with an automatic, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
