I've noticed the increase of windnoise in all of our 2000+ cars. (Aurora and Bonnevilles.) Mine has a LOT more wind noise than my riv had, and my mom'* previous 95 Bonneville SSE had a lot less wind noise than her 2000 SSEi now has. I'm not sure what the cause is honestly. It'* kind of annoying at highway speeds though. I just got used to it now..

the depreciation on these cars is unbelievable though. My car was worth 16,000 when I bought it last year, and now this year, just one year later, it'* worth only $9,800. It'* depreciating a lot faster than I can even pay it off. Same is true for our 00 SSEi. It was 18,000 three years ago when we bought it, and now it'* worth around 8,000. It really is crazy how fast these cars depreciate!

My advice get one sitting on the lot new for cheap. They are still around but becoming harder to find. Finally someone realizes (that the GXP'* are great cars!), took a while!

see, now thats makes me mad. Why are 1992 designed GM cars quieter than the new ones? There'* no reason a 2004 $38k car shouldn't be as quiet as a 1992 car.

There are very few 04-05 SLE and Ive found 0 GXP Bonnes around GR so far. The Trade in value on my bonne, according to the Grand Pontiac dealer is still around 13,5 and some loose change.

Im hoping they have a better value when I come back, and am Looking for a car

Bonneville sales for 05 were 55% fleet, out of 10,000 meaning more than half were SE'* and 20% SLE'* and 25% GXP'*. The SLE'* seem harder to find. For Petes sakes the GP for 05 had 45% fleet sales! I thought it was way less!
