I've already put a deposit down on a Silver 2000 Bonneville SE with 78,xxx miles which I can get for around $7900. Surprisingly, the car has most all the SLE options...Leather, dual climate controls, sunroof, and dual power seats. My question remains, is this an alright deal and do I purchase the extended warranty through Guardian Warranty and if so 1, 2, or 3 years?
Also, are the sunroofs on these cars very problematic? And I can see oil on the engine (looking at the engine from the front grille its on the right front side), I can't tell if it'* coming from the valve cover or not. If it is the valve cover is this common and should it not be anything to worry about? The other thing I noticed was condensation on the oil cap which the dealer exclaimed is common with the 3800 motors.
I also am looking at a gold/bronze/beige (whatever you'd call it) 2000 Bonne SE with 54,xxx miles for $6900 but no more than basic options and I'm not really fond of that color or the lack of options, not sure if that'* the better deal or not?
Your experienced help is much appreciated. I'm planning on buying it in a couple days so the faster the responces the more it'll help me out. I look forward to hopefully becoming a Bonneville owner and participating more in thie forum!
