2001 Pontiac Bonneville Owner Comments

problem #3

May 162008


  • 52,000 miles


First incident happened when I was just driving to work I went to lower the rear window heard a noise and the window fell down. I tried to shut it, but it would not close, the motor did not work and I only had 52,000 miles on the car. Second incident happened last week when I was driving to the store with my baby granddaughter and the window on the other side did the same thing. Difference here it was a cold day in Maine and my 16 month old granddaughter was in her car seat in the back. Tried to get it closed but it would fall right back down. I had to get the parents to come get the baby because it would have been to cold for me to drive her home with the wind coming through the window I now have 62,331 miles on this car. This is very unsafe, all 2001 Bonneville should be recalled, and have the windows fixed.

When the rear window motor of 2001 Bonneville fails, it causes the window to lower even though it is in the fully raised position. The window position was not being changed at the time. It was just a sudden clunk sound from the back seat and the window went down. This happened when driving at night in very heavy rain, on the interstate with infant in the rear seat. This may seem like a minor item, but if we had been in a North Dakota snow storm, temp. Of 5 degrees and wind chills even worse.. the situation would have been life threatening. The window should be designed remain in it's selected position in the event of motor failure. The second rear window failed in the exact same manner about 4 months after the first..no baby on board this time.

All windows except drivers stopped working, all door locks except drivers stopped working. Car was stored for part of winter. I put in a new battery and now I have no climate control. Drivers side is hot, pass is cold. Pass heated seat does not work at all. Sun roof just broke! steering is making lots of noise, transmission seems to be slipping. Wtf why no recall. How can you purchase a car for 35,000 & it is "!@#$% before it hits 100,000? my Ford has 196,000 no problem, my Honda has 235,000 barely a problem. I have owned 4 Pontiac and now im paying thousands to fix the piece of ?!@#$%! why in the ?!@#$% do my windows not work!! all of them in one day? no door locks, at all? same day! now with a new battery, I have 90 deg air on the drivers side & 60 deg air on the passenger side. You try to drive this piece of ?!@#$%!! now my back passenger side window just fell down!! I have to use a magic marker to pry & hold it up!! we need a major recall on these faulty vehicles. Im a Pontiac fan, but ill never buy another one if you cant try and fix this ?!@#$%. my car looks like new but works like it was built by a bunch of idiots!! I am embarrassed to drive this car. It looks better than most 525 B-mirs but I have to tell all my friends that I have no door locks, no air, no windows or anything. Nothing like sitting inside a 135 degree leather bound flagship sweating your ?!@#$% off!! by the time I get to work im a big ball of sweat!! please stand behind your product. Im seriously looking to spend some of my money to promote a campaign to do nothing but talk ?!@#$%about your products. Get on line for a minute and see how many Bonneville owners are really having a hard time with the issues I have listed above! there are thousands!! time for a recall! don't U think? get your "!@#$% straight GM! my family works for you! we buy you please help!
