New, possibly may buy used 1999 SSEI, questions?
Hello, this is my first post. I registered because I am looking at a used 1999 Bonneville SSEI with a little over 106000 miles. I am hoping the good forum members here will have some good advice for me and what to look for.
I have driven it once and it feels solid...engine, turbo, transmission, suspension, etc. A few minor things wrong is the windshield has a crack horizontally. Will have to eventually be replaced but not now. The power antenna doesn't work. Power and motor run but the gears don't move it. The high beam switch doesn't turn on highs. And the button on the gear shifter to push has fallen out of its hole and is just kind of resting there still connected. It still allows you to shift and move it which is good.
Front brakes were replaced and back drums are good. Leather is good and surprisingly no cracks except on driver seat by seatbealt.
I listened for any rattles in the turbo and dindt hear any. Other than that I don't know anything about the turbo. I am familiar with the solid 3800 engine. We haved numerous bonneville se'*.
Is there anything I really need to look for or worry about? It is $3500 minus $300 for the windshield.
