Default Bonneville Or grand prix

I have a 97 Bonneville and would like to get a newer car in 2009. I really like my 97. I like the look, price and selction of the 04-07 Grand prixs. So is the 04-07 Grand prix a good car?

From what I understand, the GP has less inside room, so the car will be a bit more cramped. But it is also a smaller lighter car and therefore a bit quicker.

And thats basically it. The GP is just a midsized Bonne for all practical purposes. If you desire a little less room and ride comfort but better acceleration and gas mileage

the 04s have a wide variety of common problems, and 05'* fixed some of them

take a look at Club Grand Prix! Your online Grand Prix & G8 resource or gpona.com

I would get an 05 SLE, for the best combination of looks, mileage, and comfort.
