There'* a mixed run there..

Flush out the Dex, yes..that'* a definate.

Fill with green only if you are postiive every drop of Dex is out.
Fill with the anycolor
Fill with Prestone long life.

Any of the above should work well.

switching shouldn't void anything. It should be viewed as servicing the system.

My father-in-law, who has owned MANY Bonnevilles, and Chieftans, Starchiefs, Parisiennes (sp?), Granvilles, and you name it, had an 05 SE for about a year and got rid of it because he had it back at the Dealer every few months. Now he has an 06 GP, but I think he would rather be driving a Bonnie.
But, I woudn't worry too mcuh about his probelms with his 05, any car model can have one or few slip through with problems.
And, I didn't see anything, so is this an SE, SSEi or what.
Oh yeah, and i can't believe no one else has sait it....







As far as buying the 03, I say as long as you are happy with it and the price you are getting it for, go for it. As mentoned, when and if any problems arise, you'll have plenty of help here getting them resolved.

I regret the aluminum control arms, hood and other weight savings measures by GM that removes weight from over the front wheels but other than that I like it....
