Default Had my car for 1 year now

Just thought I would make quick post I have now owned my 92 for one year now. Spent a total of 997.89 in the past yearin reapairs all of them were problems that car had when I got it. NOthing new has gone wrong it. Put total of about 18,000 miles on the machine. since I got her.Base on avearge fuel mileage got over the last year which about 25 it does about 27-28 now that is 720 gallons of gas. Assume I paid average of 2.20 that I put $1584 gas in the car. Take in account I pay about 500 every 6 months for plpd. I spent 3581.89 on machine. That comes to about 20 cent I mile it cost to run my car.
Also 18000 miles with anything new going wrong is record it for me. The previous record was held by my intrugie which had develop intake leak only going 12,000 miles with on think new that car had 67,000 on when I had to sell her.(i lost my job) It was sad day. But look back I am glad I did I love my bonneville. After I got married this year in juneI will be in the market for new 99 or high bonneville hopefully. Also hopeing the new will have boost.

Congrats man.I've had my '99 SE for a little over 2 years now. I bought her with 39k on the clock and now she'* just about to roll 116k. No problems with her so far, I ve just had to replace a couple sets of brake pads and rotors from pulling her back down to to "legal' speeds from over 100mph so many times. And I've gone through a couple sets of tires.
Here'* hoping you have many good years and memories with your Bonne.

I like the statistics, sounds like a real good machine you have there. Wish you continued good service from your Bonne.
