NOW thats the kind of response I have been looking to get. The opinions of every car from every person. I appreciate that.
Now I do love the 00-03 SSEi, but I do know of their problems. And they have quite a few.
I do know the GXP is cheap. Very cheap. But on the otherhand they do look amazing. But I'm definitely ore concerned with quality than looks.
As for the SS, if I had one, I want a real one. I don't want to convert anything, I want the real deal. But they are a bit pricey AND their 4L60e transmissions bite the dust at around 100k and I know I might not have the money to buy a new trans at that time, so I think I will stick to a more reliable car.
AURORAS, those are just amazing IMO, they look amazing, the quality does not look too shabby and the L47 really shows some potential. Personally I like the exterior style of the Second Gen Aurora over the gen I by alot. These are DEFINITELY on the top of the list if i can find a low mileage one for the right price. Personally I don't REALLY care about power that much, I am just looking for something that won't be constantly taking a crap on me and that will really pass the test of time.
Now for the Grand Prix, those really do look cool, kinda like a long thin bullet. They are smaller and lighter than the bonneville, AND have the 3800. But they are just so COMMON, I mean I can turn around every minute and find SOME GP of some model and year. They're everywhere. Thats one of the reasons that I like the Aurora, they aren't exactly easy to find.
Hah, the mustang. Those mustangs. Now I know they are a ford and all, and well I know mine was REALLY terrible as far as reliablity goes, but then again, I have never given the 5.0 a chance. And yes, I know about how they get stomped on, and truth is, thats exactly the reason I kinda shyed away from it....But if I can ever find a nice low mileage one, I certainly will jump on it, as long as the price is not completely insane.
Custom: Thank you for the clarification on that. That helps me alot with my Aurora/Intrigue decision. I kinda wanted an Aurora more than an Intrigue, basically just because they are alot more luxurious, plus they look alot better.
. I will definitely say, that my dream car (for a daily) would be a 2002-03 Aurora 4.0 with Navigation. I think if I did end up owning one I would go into shock :P
. But anyways. We'll see how it ends up.
I appreciate everyone helping me with this decision. And will appreciate anything more that can be added. Car buying is always a very important decision, and apparently I have not always made the best ones as far as getting and getting rid of cars.
