I'm not a big speeder, but I do go over, only because everyone else does. When a guy takes 25 seconds to get to 40 mph, its annoying.

I just memorized the headlights on the police cars(crown vic, impala, caprice) and when i see some that are similar i slow down! I hate cars that drive slow in the fast lane also. I took drivers-ed last year and in the book it specifically stated that the speed limit signs are the posted LIMIT(don't go faster) and it also stated that that was for appropriate conditions too. so if you are going 55 in a posted 55 when it is hailing or something a cop can legally pull you over and give you a ticket. Thats what it says anyway not that I obey traffic rules or anything. RULES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN!

I do know that it is a popular car for the older folk, but I think if they should own a car like that, they shouldn't drive it slow.
has it ever occured to you that a bonneville is NOT a performance car??? sure its a little quick, but its not like those sick type R'* j/k
u guys r just like those kids in their honda'*. all like "3800 Series II" like its all bad *** high performance or something. GIVE ME A BREAK! speading around town in ur HELLA quick economy car.

This is not intended for the SSEi owners, u guys actually DO have fast cars. if only they weren't front wheel drive, then they would be awesome.

I know they aren't the fastest cars, but they are quite perky. I'm just saying, use the torque to your advantage, and don't drive like an old granny.

Give me a break. There is NOT a huge *** difference between the SE 0-60s and the SSEi'* stock. Yes there is some, but not to the proportion some people blow it out to be!

has it ever occured to you that you may be slightly misinformed??!?
LUXURY SPORT SEDAN = PONTIAC'* PERFORMANCE SEDAN. And no i am not talking about the econo version.

Haha...type R? talk to Murdock...he'* got a Bonneville Type R LOL type ah, type ah, v tech vtech (lol) hang on...let me go out and spend like $20k on my type ah-vtech in one so i can go wrap myself around a tree

where is this coming from? lol

Theres always people that think something is dumb. I just ignore them, that'* their opinion and they are free to express it. Who cares if the Bonne is a family sedan not meant to be a "performance vehicle", but it'* fun when you can put down a true sports car while hauling the family or getting groceries!
