knock on wood.

Apart from one recall (OnStar recall), I've experienced none of the issues reported in some of the posts.
Mind you I purchased my car in late August 2000; so most of the bugs may have been ironed out already by then.

This link will work for all Bonnevilles from 1993 to 2003. Just chage the year in the file name (use all four digits).

At over 160,000kms I have had great 'luck with my car too
Some problems I've had;
seat element...twice
rear power window....still not fixed
wierd trunk misalignment......real pita to fix
several SES alarms...untill I taught my wife to tighten the fuel cap
2 winshields.......dang winter
2 sets of tires......need another set come spring

I'm a tradesmen (electrician) and have always done my own services. Plus I have a friend who won the gm good wrench north american competition a few years back to turn too when I have any tough questions.
