Default 200k bonneville

whats the possibility of a 93 bonny ssei with 160k like mine blowing the engine or a new trainy. im thankful i havent had to replace neither. i drive slow and gentle i do not like to hot rod the engine like most do. im hoping to go over 200k. i do change oil and give it a tune up often? does anybody know of a bonneville going over 200k with minumul problems. todd

with the way I drove the first week I had the car...yeah highly likely the drivetrain would not make it thru the year.


93 is a good year..one of the best they say.

some go to 300k+

Its not a bonnie, but my '99 Grand Prix GT has 206k miles on it. It runs and drives as good as or better than new. It has a good 206k+ miles left IMO.

94 Bonne, 255,6xx miles. The MN guys can attest to the fact that it'* beat on, fairly hard.

That thing is crazy for a fairly stock NA, let alone a L27. Mileage is a non issue for these engines. Neither is hard driving.
