Default going to look at a GXP

hey guys whats up?, new here to the forum, and just have a couple questions, i am going to look at a 2004 bonneville GXP with 46K miles tomorrow, the price is 13900 with one owner and no accidents, the car is white with tan/brown interior....now i have never owned a GM vehichle before, i have had lincoln/jeep/bmw....are these bonnevilles reliable?, are they easy and strait forward to fix if something goes wrong, and most important are they a fun car to own??.. i really like the looks of the car, and have read plenty of reviews, and it seems they get a very good REP.. but is there any thing i should look for , or listen for when looking at this vehichle... any opionions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank You

Ryan, the Northstar is an icredibly put together engine. The car has some issues like any. I bought mine new, have no regrets and would do it agian and have no thoughts of trading. The next thread down has some things to look for when buying. And Welcome to the Forum !. Hope you get the GXP, I Love mine,

I just picked up a 2004 Bonnie GXP with a little over 13k on the clock. I am in love, this is the nicest car I have owned, and has plenty of power. I bought an extended warranty simply b/c of the electronics etc, but I am anxious to learn about the Northstar and everything else about the car.
