Hmmmm.

thats 126,500...thats not to bad. Ive read some reviews on the Pre 92 SSE'*..all seem good....any re-occuring problems with this year? Besides the charging system, that is a problem on most, unless you upgrade the alt.

Code 41.... cam shaft sensor....
and brakes.... they are kinda hard on brakes....

Just curious.... why are you looking at older models?
You sold your 93 and now you're looking at a 90? Not that there is anything wrong with that, just curious.

For comparison, I'd probably be asking $2000-$2500 for my '91 with 305,000km, some quarterpanel rust on one side, no A/C, new Monroe rear air shocks, running like a champ, and the only interior malfunctions would be half of the power seat functions (you can still go forward/backward lol, no reclining!). Oh, and I've got hundreds of dollars (if new) worth of junkyard parts. Quite a few extra air suspension parts too, those are hard to come by in the boneyard.


As I'm looking at that AutoTrader ad... that'* essentially my car minus 100,000km, ghetto gold, and leather. I've got remote start too, but that means nothing, its a cheapy Bulldog unit

(how common are cloth-seat SSE'*?!)

Wow, i didnt realise how nice the pre 92 Bonnevilles are. This one had alot of power, low end, as I expected, it did hwy speeds no problem. It had a small vibration at speeds over 40 mph. It has the throaty GM sport exhaust dual outlet. The drivers seat has a rip in it, coverd by a black leather pad, the other seat is in alright condition. The Air Cond is in EVEN denominations, as opposed to my 93'* Odd denoms. It does 16 20, my old one went 15 degress right to 19 degrees.On MAX power the A/C seems weak, something has got to be clogged as you can hear the fan going like crazy. The steering controls for climate control work great, however it does have a cheap Pioneer deck in it, i was hoping for the stock one instead. The Gain control is much diffrent from the 92+, once its turned on, all you hear is static cackling from the rear speakers. The trans seems pretty strong, it leaks a very small ammount from the pan. The engine does not leak, as far as I can tell. Its dark navy blue in color, the previous owner painted it, as he owned a body shop. Nice rims too.
The power windows are slow, just like my Park Avenues, i can live with that, as long as the rest of the car is fine.
Also, the hood shocks are dead, you have to use a stick to hold it open. I think I might just keep looking, defintally want a '90 or 91 SSE now too lol!

Well considering I got mine for under 1,000$, LOL.

I think with that mileage it was a bit over priced anyhow. Keep looking. But if you wanna spend about 4,000 on a car might as well get as new of a car as you can. Not that I would trade my 90 SSE for a newer one unless it was a 2K+ SSEi, LOL.
