My newly purchased 99 so far...
Well I knew I wanted a another Bonneville after the old one died, so I found a 99 SE and got it for $2800, with 124K on in. It'* BARE, about as base as it gets, also an ex-rental car (didn't have the luxury of knowing that when I bought it...) but it was the only Bonne that I could afford. There didn't APPEAR to be too much wrong with it, it drove fine...
But so much crap has shown up, I just don't even know if it'* worth it to keep on fixing it.
Wheel cylinders leaking, replaced.
Brakes worn to nothing, replaced
Wheel hub assembly replaced
Rear tires replaced
Fluids flushed (tranny fluid BROWN)
That'* all I thought was wrong until...
A week after I got it, decided to quit starting. Took a new cam sensor, crank sensor, coil pack, starter to get it to run
Got an engine light and- the cat is clogged, bad 02 sensor, bad t-stat.
Tranny recently started shifting rough, has had a few bad slips
Surely the UIM and LIM gaskets need replacing
Am I just a fool to keep fixing it, or is this a normal amount of problems? I wish I was better with cars, I probably would have been able to see this stuff before I bought it
