Yup, and it only had 2.83 gearing which made it seem slower yet.

Anyone with an FSM can look it up too. Granted I do think the 05 Lesabre that I think he'* talking about seeing that it was his rental out west is going to be really different from our 95'*, and we're force fed vs natuarlly aspirated.
Well..I know you don't have a manual you putz... otherwise this putz wouldn't have had to crawl in his trunk...lol

Jealously gets you nowhere....
Bah......

Anyways.....Doesn't the '05'* have the 3.9 or 3.6 liter or whatever?? Or are they still 3.8'*?

Any way you look at it, forced induction is the way to go when you're driving at high elevations.

I agree, I really wished I had taken the Bonne....but how cool is it that I can say I drove the same Pikes Peak that the rally guys do, and I did it in a Suburu......I just wish it was a WRX like the guy I parked next to at the top LOL
