I'm thinking maybe they were trying to get you to check out something similar size wise and such that might have been a few more bucks.

yea, they tried to get me into 3 cars before the SLE all silver, PA, STS, and 300M

I liked all three, the 300M was an 02 but didn't ride like the SLE, it had about 53k on it. Interior wise the 300M was much better than the bonnie, but the SLE just rode better (I don't know if it was cause it was just a drop of gas in the 300 and a full tank on the SLE ) I wish the two could have borrowed features to make an smashing combination.

oh, and the SLE wasn't his it was another dealerships out there that might have something to do with it (fair ground tent sale)
How much of a difference is there between a 93 SLE and a 01? My mom has a 01 300M, and it rides a lot better than my Bonnie, but it has a lot more body roll and my car handles a lot better.

check out the Aurora 3.5 if your'e looking for something similar to the Bonneville, but want a nicer interior/stiffer ride. They have FE3 suspension standard and handle/ride very nicely. The steering is also very tight. (tighter than the SSEi'*.) The performance isn't as good as an SSEi, but it'* very close to the SLE, just a little bit quicker once you're underway.

that was one of my 3 choices actually Custom, I wanted a full size car and I was only interested in a PA 97+, Bonnie 01 SLE+, and Aurora v6 cause of gas prices.

I can't compare the 92-95'* cause I only know how mine drives, Only thing I can tell U is they ride very similar to the 98-99'* (I've driven these two SSE 98 and SE 99) the ride on the series 2 is less stiff than the 92-95'* as far as I know. The Chrysler wasn't a bad ride, if you compare it to the SLE I drove well...... yea it drove a little stiffer than the SLE. The 300 was an 02 I believe and 4k more. IMO you won't go wrong with either one if you like chryslers.

Question, I drove an PA Ultra and I thought they were all supercharged? I didn't look under the hood but I didn't feel like it if so,

You must have drove a 300 with the Sport Package on it. My mom has the 01 w/out the Sport, and my aunt has a 04 w/ the sport, and the Sport rides very stiff.

I went to a stealership once after they told me they had a Park Avenue Ultra on their lot. I went, but it wasn't an ultra as promised but N/A.

"Yea, but I hate to see you turn down a BEAUTIFUL car..." Oh **** off. To this day I have never met one salesman which I even moderately liked, and I think I never will.

I drove a 02 SLE yesterday. 99K and they're asking 9995. But you know it'* the end of the month, and it'* been on the lot for quite a while and....... Yea, he could go as low as 9000. I told him to keep it and call me the day before it goes to the auction. He called me today and asked what I thought it was worth, I said I'd give him 6000, he'* "checking with the sales manager" even as I type.
