Do you think that the SE and SLE Bonnevilles are fast or do you think that they are slow?

I guess it depends upon what you are comparing it to...I think that mine is a dog out of the hole...but has good topend speed.

depends what you are used to driving, in my opinion most bonnevilles are too slow. not that I have ever drvin a seriously modded b-ville but stock they are slow ssei or not.


hower compared to older imports or dodge/ford of the same year the bonnevilles usually are faster.

It'* all relative. What are you comparing it against? I've always been very happy with the torque curve of a NA 3800.

Sure Toasted understands slow...he'* driven slow for Jim to keep up

Slow/Fast is all relative. Personally if I hadn't bout a supercharged car, i'd be perfectly happy with an NA car. There'* always something faster than you, and typically there'* always something slower than you.

Please try to post topics like this somewhere other than the mechanical sections. I'll move this one for you.
