1998 Pontiac Bonneville SLE
If 60 is the new 50, then granny car is the new sports car, as the
Pontiac Bonneville combines the energy of a supercharged engine
with the comfort of a roomy full-size car, and the luxury features
of a high-end sedan. More sports sedan than fuddy-duddy old-timer,
the 1998 Pontiac Bonneville is here for the taking.
For consignment a 1998 Bonneville from Pontiac, in SLE trim. This
means a 3.8 liter V6, EFI 4-Speed automatic and all the creature
comforts one could want in a 1998 4-door sedan including leather
seats, performance suspension, traction control, and steering wheel
All bathed in black and ready to be the belle of the ball, we can
still see a hint of the Pontiac beak in front on the black thing
small front grille. Now integrated headlights with side turn
signals wrapping around the front quarters give this car a much
more aero look than its dual stacked headlight predecessors. Some
black vinyl accenting is adding a 3D look to the slab sides and
black trimmings for the glass and handles. Nicely rounded panels
and well minded gaps are noted throughout. Paint is fair with some
dulling, staining, and oxidation throughout.
Inside futuristic Michelin Man-esque leather buckets with vertical
stitched inserts and integrated headrests flank a center rounded
design gray console. A gray leather bench is in back and of the
same pattern. Undulating lines abound for the dash design which
seamlessly integrates to the center console. Even door panels are
utilizing this round flowing style...gone is the 80's square and
rectangle design, (thank goodness!). All clean and nicely preserved
Some patina one the 3.8-liter V6 engine. It is fed by EFI and has a
4T60E 4-speed automatic transmission on back with a 2.84 final
Heavy surface rust is on the exhaust system, and it does leak, so
it will need to be attended to on a priority basis. Otherwise,
spotty surface rust is noted and plenty of oxidized and slightly
corroded parts for the floor pans and other undercarriage
structural parts. The bottom ends of the shock towers are a bit
rusted and should also be checked for stability. Independent
suspension is all around, and power disc brakes are upfront, and
power drums on the rear.
A quick starter and the 6 cylinders all came immediately to life.
On the test track it performed as expected. There was an airbag
light on, the A/C system has a leak and will not cool, and as noted
earlier that exhaust leak.
A 1998 Pontiac Bonneville SLE in fair condition with the paint, and
mechanically sound with a nice interior and a few items needing
attention. One owner for its entire life which includes just a tick
under 66K miles. Come and get it!
