Yeah, especially recently. One problem hits after another, you just wanna sell it and go to something that doesn't have any problems.... but you just can't do that all the time.

your damn righ tim bored with it, its got a few problems that ive been unable to trace the cause to or are not worth fixing, and its just so damn big, i would much prefer something small that can handle, on the othe rhand i love the engine, the engine has been nothing but reliable and the power compared to the fuel economy? 35mpg hwy with 240hp and 280tq, not gonna do much better than that

guys,

i have been in a unique position lately where i had the opportunity to drive a 99 nissan altima, 91 toyota camry, and 97 buick lesabre whilst owning and driving the bonnie. after getting out of any one of those cars, i absolutely felt a fresh renewal of love and pride for the bonnie. nothing like her...nothing ever will be like her. unique...fun...spacious...not perfect...but definitely has character. i'll miss being in a bonneville. michael picks mine up on wed. (7 days from today).

atleast I am not the only one.

I admit I beat the living sh*t out of my car. I do love the bonne but she is getting older and starting to show it.

I hate her/myself even more now that I flat spotted one or both of my front tires when I went on a pissed off joy ride. (never reconnected that WSS after drags at CEBF so instead of ABS I leave large black streaks and clouds of smoke)

oh well, if I can manage to be nice enough to it for the next 4 years then I will be more than happy.

Sometimes I get bored when I drive it. I wish it was manual :( If it was like that, it would be the perfect car.

I can not say ever got bored with the car, but ever now then taken for granted. Yeah true the air doesn't work the best, but it has gone about 38,000 miles with out ever having problem.

If you ever get bored or tired of it, drive something else. All things considered, there'* quite alot to these cars in options, comfort and performance. I compare mine every now and then to what my friends drive, and even though all of them drive newer cars, they don't begin to compare to mine.
