Well this is the last post I'm going to make about a new car. I went back to Heintz Pontiac and I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy from them. Here'* the final lineup:
1. 2003 Ford Escape XLT black/grey $16,995 22,000 mi
2. 2004 Grand Prix GT white $15,995 23,000 mi
3. 2005 Toyota Carolla * blue $18,100 10 mi

And with that, I also say goodbye, becuase you'll notice Bonneville is no where to be seen. Thanks for the good times and good advice guys. Catch ya on the flip side.

in the long run I don't think that you'll really be happy with any of those cars...
..But good luck!

Okay, no deal has been done yet and I'm still open to other'* advice, ideas, etc. So why don't you think I would be happy with any of them? FYI- The Ford is priced to sell becuase Pontiac doesn't like Ford'* being on their lot, but it is an XLT and it is loaded. It has two tone paint and absolutely no plastic cladding.

I think that just over time you're going to miss the "luxury" feel you had before with cars like a Bonneville. The corolla is decent for their price range but there'* no comparision at all. Out of them all the Grand Prix would be my choice..

Now for my .02.....

Personally I would rather have the GP GT and besides there are still alot of things similar about both cars.
Most of the mods will work on the GP w/a little modification

Besides,where else can you get car advice in such a family atmosphere :o
