97BonnieSSE is on a distinguished road
Default Possible new car

The other day my father and i were cruising around, and at this small lot a way up from my house they have a 97-99 Bonneville SSEi, not positive on the year. Its dark cherry metallic and has the chrome wheels, sunroof, and everything on it. After losing my Bonnie around christmas last year i've been out on the hunt for another. I just have some questions that need to be answered before i'd consider getting the car. They take premium fuel am i correct? Could you possibly run regular or would that cause problems. Along the same topic, do they get decent gas mileage, i know with a supercharger and a lead foot you can't get that great of mileage, but if you were sensible are they some-what economical. Lastly, are there any promblem that may arise from this car. What would i look at replacing right away after buying it. Any response that would help me in my slight delema would be great. thanks

I would guess 97 because of the color. If it'* a supercharged engine ya, premium. You will get a few extra miles per gallon and that off sets the extra cost. Figure millage in the low 20s, high 20s on the high way.

i was thinking 97 as well but wasn't positive. My Bonnie was a 97 40th anniversery SSE, and i loved that color. I just thought that they continued the color after that. Are there any problems with the supercharged series II? any tips on what to check out when i test drive it?
