Well the other day I took a bonnie out for a test drive with my friend and i didn't like it at all really I mean it was smooth and such but it had like NO options that I gota have like the center console shifter TC and stuff like that....they wanted 5995 for the car....I guess I am looking more twoards like another contour but I want a SVT those look amazing and have a decent engine with good gas mileage but if a bonne came along like my uncles for under 4 grand I would buy it his is so nice its a 1995 bonnie SLE it has everything tc all power options moonroof leather dual power seats its so amazing!!
1995 Ford contour GL 2.0l auto
Paid price: $130+$22 for strut assemblys
The Ups: None anymore
The Downs: No cruise, No tilt no power options minus the PM, needs front end alignment bad, the cv joint will go out soon cause of accident putting in strut assemblys
You can get decent Bonnevilles, you just have to hunt around. I got mine for $3500 back in December with 117k on it. Of course I'm not so sure you really need a Bonneville with your driving history....but you'll learn soon enough once the moeny tree dies up.
