Default Getting Rid of the 94

Well its pretty much decided we are getting rid of my 1994 bonneville. I will be sad to see it go, but very happy as to what i will possibly get. My parents said that since I will be paying for a lot of the car they will let me decide. I'm thinking about a 2000 and above SSEi or a Grand Prix GTP with my first option being a 2000 SSEi. I really like this year(somethin about the rims). But anyways just thought I would see what you guys think, or if you see any really good deals on the cars I mentioned.

I think a 2000 SSEi would be a good reason to upgrade. Good luck on your search.

I'd get a 99' SSEi. 00+ seem kinda questionable reliability wise.

yea, I've never drove an 96-99 SSEi but I have been in a 94 it rode pretty good, Questionable no doubt they are after all the first year for the re-design, but so was 87-88(SSE), 92, and 96! just hope you don't get a lemon

You have an 03. All the bugs have been worked out by 03'. And the ride I also agree with. I'd suggest for the 00+ body style to get an 02 or newer.

Definitely spend some time searching around here and have a look at some of the issues that members have had with their '00 bonnevilles. Seems like it took a year or two to work out some of the bugs.

You will miss your pre-'00 bonneville
