One of the possible causes of a Pontiac Bonneville to jerk during acceleration is that the car needs a tune up. The engine misfiring can lead it to jerk as you accelerate.

What causes the transmission in a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville to feel like it is not engaged during a quick takeoff from dead stop?

I had this problem with my 1994 Bonneville SE. would try checking the transmission fluid level(that was the problem with mine). If the transmission fluid level is where it's supposed to be then it could be that the transmission is going out or you may need to check the torque converter. I think that can also cause the problem.

The vibration at speed is more than likely a tire out of balance or a tire with a broken belt. Have this checked ASAP. The pulsation during acceleration can be many things, from a vacuum leak to a clogged fuel filter. Take it to a tech for service.
