Look deep for the messed up things, If I has been able to see that all three plastic wheel well inserts wer broken I probably could have gotten mine cheaper..

Check the wheel wells! That'* a chronic rot spot for the Bonneville. Every Bonneville we have owned rotted there. (except for the 00 SSEi. It'* too young for that)This causes trunk leaks, and sometimes water to enter the passenger cabin behind the back seat.

Well, just got back from the bank, took out 4G cash, damned wallet wont close now, me and dad are going to head up there in an hour or so. Leaks are something ive delt with before, the trunk and spare tire compartment are something im gunna look at. We are going to have it pre purchase inspected too.
