Well, the Bonneville may actually be going soon. But not due to gas prices. An SUV is actually in consideration now. And before anyone asks, this is because, we can get an 06 TrailBlazer loaded with 10k miles on it for 11k. At four dollar a gallon gas, it would take approximately 150k miles to make up for the cost of a car. Because most cars in our area with this few miles cost around 16-17k. So the 4 cent difference per mile from 28 to 22 is not worth it. So take that. I will continue to enjoy driving something over powered, and nice even with gas prices.!!!
First off i don't have a Bonneville but I do have a Grand Prix.
I put less miles on my Grand Prix throught the year then I do during the WCBF week/*
The GTP only gets 16-ish city and 23~24-ish hwy in AZ, it gets 25 hwy in Cali & Oregon.
My daily driver is a 2000 C5 Corvette and it gets 17 to 19 city and that'* getting on it around twn (not breaking the speed limit) and the Vette gets 30 mpg on the hwy.
There is no way i'd trade my cars for an economy car, it doesn't make sense.
I can't believe anyone would give one up for gas pricing issues!
I've had several full size fwd & rwd GM'*...currently with two Buicks now...my FWD is a Park Avenue, with a 3800...I can easily get 29-30-31 MPG on the highway which is what my other fwd full sized units would get at minimum!
I would never ever give mine away. I feel like I'm driving a fast leather recliner to work. I love getting in it and hate getting out of it. When and if my wife ever leaves me, it will be my permanent residence. I just love to look at it. I don't know how to explain it but I'm sure you all know.
