I am looking at a 95 Bonneville with the SLE option and have a few questions.
1. Tranny shudder when cruising at about 50 mph. I read another post on this board that discussed it. My question is this.....the dealer said he could fix the problem by changing a sensor, true?
2. A/C system is frequently cycling, like every 5 to 10 seconds or so. It still blows cold, but isn't running right from what I understand. My question is, where are the frequent leaks, what parts frequently go out and how expensive are they to replace?
3. It doesn't appear there is a thermostat in the car. It runs very cold, all of the time. (Possibly having an affect on the lock up?) Why would someone remove the stat?
There are a handful of very minor cosmetic issues. The car is white with gray interior. The carpet along the passenger'* side door is coming up (easy fix), the interior light covers on the doors, the ones that are 5 or 6 inches long and 1/2" tall, are missing, the rubber moulding between the rear bumper and the passenger'* side fender is coming up.
Other than that, and a few small cracks in the driver'* seat, its seems about perfect, cosmetically. I ran a carfax on it, it'* a one owner, Arizona car and shows no problems what-so-ever. The dealer is asking $3350, but said, "He'll make me a special price" because it needs tires and maybe an alignment.
Anything else I need to pay particular attention to?
Thanks for your help.
