The Air Cond is in EVEN denominations, as opposed to my 93'* Odd denoms. It does 16 20, my old one went 15 degress right to 19 degrees.On MAX power the A/C seems weak, something has got to be clogged as you can hear the fan going like crazy. The steering controls for climate control work great, however it does have a cheap Pioneer deck in it, i was hoping for the stock one instead. The Gain control is much diffrent from the 92+, once its turned on, all you hear is static cackling from the rear speakers. The trans seems pretty strong, it leaks a very small ammount from the pan. The engine does not leak, as far as I can tell. Its dark navy blue in color, the previous owner painted it, as he owned a body shop. Nice rims too.
The power windows are slow, just like my Park Avenues, i can live with that, as long as the rest of the car is fine.
Also, the hood shocks are dead, you have to use a stick to hold it open. I think I might just keep looking, defintally want a '90 or 91 SSE now too lol!
Yeah, the climate control goes from 16 to 20.
There'* a "GM sporty dual-outlet exhaust"? Wouldn't all SSE'* be the same? I ask because my SSE seems louder than other 87-91 Bonnevilles out there, and my exhaust is in good shape.
There'* something wrong with the Gain function on the Bonneville you looked at. You're supposed to notice a distinctive increase in bass when it'* activated, I keep mine in the middle. The crackling you hear may be due to the aftermarket head unit?
... FYI, hood shocks from 1992+ models should work as well, as mine came from a '92 LeSabre at the junkyard, I also got my STB from the same car
