Default Am I lucky, or are you unlucky?

Reading the posts about things that have gone wrong with the 2k+ Bonnies...i'm wondering if I got lucky or if some of you just got unlucky. At 156k kms - YES, that many - just a heated seat has gone wrong And a whiny sounds from the vents but that'* small.
knock on wood.

I have always stood by the fact that any first year redesign car will have its bugs and minor issues.

Guess you are lucky I still can't believe that you have 20K more on your car its its 4 years younger then mine and I have had rear shocks, ELC sensor and the rad go on me

It does seem like the 00+ people have more problems then 92-99 people sometimes, did they move the plan or something?

The 92 had its problems...EGR? but thats another story, don't want to get off topic. Also, I wouldn't rush out for a GXP, might wait for the 05 :P

Tam, I'd bet all your issues were addressed by the previous owner, saving you the headache.

I don't know Tamara...I'm at 53,000 miles now and nothing so far (other than the ceaseless TCC issue , but that'* not that bad).

Maybe the 2000+ Bonnies just like women better than men.

I just know I am going to walk out to the car and find it won't start or something just for saying that :P

I'd check your power steering fluid level (when the car is warm, and off). And while you're at it, check your brake fluid also. Always check them all if you're gonna check one.
