Default Love and Hate

What do you love about your Bonnie and what do you Hate?? I love the gas mileage I get for a full sizecar, the stying is or was different than anything out there. Now you look and and there'* the same shape on cars large and small. I hate the lack of power, 205 hp is decent but with 275 to 300 it would be a top luxury sedan. Suspension promising but inadequate with a full load. and on and on and on!!!!! What do you think?

In the daytime.. it'* hardly noticeable because I also have a film of tint on the outside to keep the debris and salt out of the hole. I have it rigged to my tailights ( not stoplights ) so whenever it gets dark enough for the sentinel to kick in.. so does the neon light. I think I did a quick write up on it here somewhere... I will find it for you later..

It'* a GM.

Reliable powertrain but the rest of the car falls apart.

Stupid stuff, at that. My driver'* side seltbelt is broken. My passenger rear power door lock is bad. My turn signal stalk mount on the steering column snapped off. My trunk has a leak. My gas door'* little holding spring broke and now the door flops back and forth. My climate control display refuses to light up with the rest of the dash (well, once in a great while it will). Sometimes, my dash dimmer doesn't work. The handle on my glovebox broke. Umm, I can think of a bunch of other stuff having to do with the interior, but I might as well stop now. It'* no Toyota, that'* for sure.
