    I have a cherry 2001 Pontiac Bonneville I would like to sell. I am going to hesitate to post it in local classifieds. The reason being is that I would like to sell the car to fellow friends and acquaintances.
    This is a 1 owner car! Service has been immaculate! Every 3,000 since new.
    It has 148,xxx miles. Fresh oil change from my service department.
    Every thing works as it should. Heated seats, power windows, amazing cassette player, with compact disc option. I know, ground breaking stuff.
    It can be hard to find a quality vehicle for a son or daughter that hasn’t been beat to s***. That’s why I would like to offer it to you all first. Or he’ll, you can use it to run around town!
    I will post additional pictures when I get into work tomorrow. Clean Utah title in hand.
    $3,500 price can be negotiated with in reason. Again this is a super clean car!
    Send me a message here. Or call and text me 801-835-7844

    Amazing to me what these engines now do....I have owned since 1967.

    My 1994 Trans Am had around 155K miles on it, then failed.
    My 2007 Caddy is showing around 190K now and like you I change the oil exactly on schedule.

    I gave the Trans Am to a guy that works at Jasper Engines.
    It has a fresh LT1 now, a rare 6 speed manual.

    I could not save them all!
    I'll keep the Caddy forever with what a new one costs.

    The 3800 Series engine was a great V6

    My dream sedan as a kid was the early 90's SSEi. They should have axed Buick instead of Pontiac.

    Buick sells too well, in China.

    Oldsmobile was actually the earliest nameplate, and they trashed it first.

    And Saturn, I hoped that Penske would save it as the Saturn Sky is a hugely fun car.
    My daughter totaled hers before I could add it to my collection.

    The one I owned was a 1991, IIRC you really dodged a bullet.
    The early engine ECUs had issues and it stranded my wife in traffic more than once.
    The last time while travelling with the young kids, without me...

    I did not want to post that, as this is an entirely different much later series Bonneville.
    Totally different car!

    As the 1978 TransAm in our ads shows we have a lot of Pontiac guys in here.

    IMO carreaper is tops, he has owned more than I have!!!
    Any Chevy dealer can still access the Parts Books for Pontiac, they are easily maintained....

    damn, what a beauty, and what a history. I can't think of the last time i saw a one-owner anything with almost 150k miles. interior takes me back to my old supercharged grand prix. really excellent car and wasn't in the shop too much. only time was when the transmission blew - the old 4t65e-hd's you could set your watch by. 105k-120k every time. the 4t65e's (non- -hd) were quite a bit better since they weren't on the supercharged cars, but if you're hoping to get some leg out of that tranny at this mileage, it might not be the one for your boy racer 17y/o nephew. the non-supercharged trans' regularly got up to 170k-180k with proper attention, but a buyer should be aware these are not like honda/toyota automatics from a durability standpoint.

    still was an awesome car, and when mine went out just swapped in a lightly used trans and kept it a couple more years. unbelievably plush. even the grand prix (let alone a bonneville) could EASILY fit 5 for some high school mischeif. understeer more than anything else i've ever driven, but the 3800 is rightfully legendary and is happy to get out of its own way. glws, this car should definitely make someone very happy.

    Had one of these - a 2000 SSEi as I recall - was a really good car and the 3.8 V-6 can't be beat. Great used car for a younger driver. GLWS :)
