My 2000 sls would get 17 city, and 26-30 hwy.
The elevation here is about 500. Looks too full to me. Drivers love the Bonneville's speed, handling, good cornering, and smooth comfortable ride. This was on more than one fill up, so It wasnt a tail wind that increased it. Now i know the gearing is slightly different in the gxp transmission. Show full review Vehicle Overview Pontiac's full-size front-wheel-drive sedan was last redesigned for the 2000 model year and received a face-lift for 2002. My radiator is full to the top.
I Have an 05 bonneville gxp, that gets poor fuel mileage. Was driving the car around town and everything was normal until I pulled into an apartment complex and started hearing a noise similar to a co. Found antifreeze on the ground under the car and heater barely warm. The 2005 Bonneville was a good compromise for drivers wanting the practicality of space, but the fun of a performance engine and the luxurious comfort of pricier imports. Only the performance trims of the Cadillac models got the 3.
Vehicle Overview Pontiac's full-size front-wheel-drive sedan was last redesigned for the 2000 model year and received a face-lift for 2002. This calculation reflects amounts in U. So ive always thought that it possibly was set up for a higher elevation? As such, few changes were made to the 2005 Pontiac Bonneville. Front head restraints move up and forward in a rear-end collision in order to be closer to the occupant's head. My gps recorded I hit 105 at one point, but who really believes a gps? Both engines team with a four-speed-automatic transmission. I actually got up to 26. The V6 performed well, and it came with many standard features.
Just like how they protected the Corvette for so many years. The rest of the kilometers were in the city 6 percent , in heavy traffic 4. Acceleration is instant and confident on the highway. Drivers are likely to feel a welcome burst of acceleration when they push the gas pedal to pass or merge in a hurry. Also if theres any things id need.
Handling on regular Bonnevilles fails to stand out, but these models steer with a light touch and respond capably to driver inputs and during cornering.

Apparently the logic is that if a car has as much power as a more upscale one, nobody will buy the more expensive one? It has always been known for roominess, and though the current batch of Bonnies sacrifice some rear head and legroom for its sportier styling, it still seats four comfortably and offers a spacious trunk. A small pass-thru from the interior to the trunk is present, but the rear seatback doesn't fold down.
