Default Need New car suggestions please!

Well, Not a new car just a different car. I am selling my Beloved Bonnie, but I want to get another car similar to her, I liked her style/her ride, I would like to get another bonnie,
but I want it to have more options and be prone to less problems, I want to pay cash, so nothing over 5000.00 and not too may miles

It doesn't have to be a bonnie but has to be something in it'* class.

Just looking for suggestions..thanks

but "prone to less problems", a fellow H car shouldn't fare much better

*points at sig*

yes, its japanese, yes, the only ones you can find are older than '94, yes, its RWD, and yes, its reliable (after you take care of the famed Toyota I6 head gasket, of course). Though it'* not much of a good idea imo :P 190hp, 185 tq

Problems? For a 10 year old car, I've had relatively few problems. Yours is the exception, not the rule. I'd get another Bonneville in a heartbeat.

What issues have you had with your current Bonnie that make you want to sell it? I'm on the board everyday and I don't recall you having many issues.

I would definately get another bonnie. Thats what I did. I liked the first one so much I bought the second one. The two bonnies are different in looks but have everything I want in a ride and then some. I am totally satisfied with the cars.

I don't have a whole lot of issues... But the mileage is up there and i had the white flaking paint issue, I hsd thre intermitent start (crank sensor) door lock problems..drivers side does not engage when unlocking....window problems ( passenger window goes down when it wants ( I've changed the switches)..small things..etc.

OH slight tapping lifters/ valves

So I want another bonnie but i need to know the correct years/model to avid the problems the bonnies are prone to

like headgasket, paint problems,etc. i want to try and get one with all options..I am even thinking supercharger but i don't know if that causes a lot of problems or not.

SE SSE SSEI, which are supercharged and which are better all around supercharged or not.

thanks
