Default Sold my Bonneville!

Thank God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry fellas, I know a lot of you love your Bonnie, but for as much as i loved mine, she didn't love me nearly enough.

During our 4 year marriage, I repaired Bonnie'* head gasket, transmission, water pump, power steering, three window regulators and the usual maintenance, brakes/tires. She was a wallet drain to say the least.

While it was strange to let her go, I know I'll be better off. I just hope her next owner is as good to her as I was. I jetisoned her for a Toyota. I need a break from GM for a while, maybe a long while. Good luck to the rest of you!

My wife and I are in the process of doing this right now. Keeping the Bonnie (since its depreciated like a rock), but buying a Honda.

It'* true. I bought a Toyota once as a dependable car for my wife and then on to my daughter. I spent more money repairing that car than my Bonnie, by far, and got rid of it with about 120,000 on the clock. I realize that it was a lemon for them. It happens to every manufacturer, like it or not.

Now my daughter has a G6 and loves it.

uirx2002, I've been there and understand your situation. Just don't run off from BC!
