Insurance on a bonnie is CHEAP compared to a lot of rides.

Milage is good if you keep out of it, or do some mods, but good luck to you whatever u get.

Good luck finding another car that wont bust the pocket book. You probably would have found a N/A car easier on gas and insurance.

My sig pic says most of it right there.....202K miles and she still runs like a bat out of hell. Any car with that kinda mileage on it'* going to need some TLC and money. To be honest with ya, with my insurance it'* WAY cheaper for me to drive a */C'd V6 over my 94 Chevy 1500. And my car gets about 30 MPG avg on the freeway.

Bills and Lakeville'* SSEi Bonnie getting 30 Mpg, as compared to my 95 SE 3800 Series II nonblown V6 @ a best of 33MPG, 32 is the usuall... I'd say thats pretty good for an SC'd motor in a full size car...

Even the 3400 V6 is rated at 21 city and 32 Hwy( might do 35mpg Max )

Sorry to hear it tho, and good luck

Not when you're 19 and it has a power-adder. That combo=horrendous rates. Throw in a ticket or two, and you're spending more on insurance than gas.
