Default is this to much?

Just for the heck of it, I stopped and looked at a Bonneville at a local dealer. It'* a 2005 SE, white, blue-ish cloth buckets, 5-spoke wheels, CD player, spotless. Salesman said it has about 20K on it, and they want $16K for it. That sounds kinda steep to me, no?

I typed in the info you gave on Kelly Blue Book'* sight and it said retail on an 2005 Bonneville SE with 20,000 miles is $17,575 , so it sounds like a good deal. http://www.kbb.com/KBB/Default.aspx

that sounds about right. i bought my 04 SE last year for 16,900, approx same miles.

05 SE a year later with similar miles, sounds about right.

I bought my 02 SSEi for $13k back in august with 57,000 miles on it. Sounds like a alright deal to me, but I'd try to get them down to $15k or so.

OH, I'm not buying the car, lord knows I couldn't afford it. I was just curious b/c not many Bonnevilles go for sale around here. The only other one for sale around here is an 03 SE.
