Default Damn car lot people are full of it!!!

I went out looking for a new Bonneville when I stumbled across 3 I was liked and 2 I was very interested in.

1. 1995 Bonneville SE Supercharged. (White) 123,445 miles

Asking price $5995

It has gold wheels, sunroof, all the buttons Perf Shift, trac contol, norm shift, tour ride, perf ride (even though the last ones both lit up.) The car was clean. A/C works and has a 6 disc CD changer in trunk. The car was smoking by the manifold or was that the intale. I think it was just smoking cause they just cleaned the engine. Broken right side mirror which they said they would fix and the left fog light was not screwed in.

2. 1995 Bonneville SSEi (Red)

Asking price













Get this














$7,545



I must have looked at tthat price and was about to smack the damn dealer. told him this is a price for a series II like a 99 or 98. Not this 95. he air compressor pump buttons are missing on that thing too. 113,000miles on it. Nic ebut he lost his rabbit *** mind with the price. I just looked at the blue book and they said for what it has in it, $5901.00

3. 96 Bonneville SE (Black with black leather)

Asking price $5995

Everything except supercharger and Bose.
102,567 miles. Not to many scrathes a all. I just dont want to go back NA.


Out of all of these cars, the 96 had a factory CD player in it.

These dealers are crazy eexcept for the one with the black car. I will continue my search tomorow.

Holy Smokes, Steve! Some of those dealers are crazy with those inflated prices. Keep looking, you're bound to find something decent for a reasonable price. You also may have to dicker with them, thier job is to steal as much money as they can from you, your job is too get the best deal in your own mind that you are willing to pay.

Just tell them what you want to pay for it, and then leave them your phone number.

I'd say if your actaully dropp'n cash I'd go with the 95 SC SE, payments I'd go with the 96 cause those newer SE'* look better and who really want'* to make payments on something that old.
