Default Thinking about buying a Bonnvile for 2nd car.

Hey guys, New to the forum and to this whole Bonneville thing. I am 17 yrs old and realizing after buying my 97 Chevy tahoe that i cant afford the gas anymore, Even with a well paying job. The 350 engine is just to much. So i was wondering a few things about the bonneville. A girl at my work is going to sell hers to me for $600. Needs nothing. Its a 1992. Good shape.

I am a shorter kid and in some cars i notice that i sit very low and i hate it. Does the Bonny sit higher over the dash? Also, Does It ride nice and is it reliable. For a 2nd car it doesnt have to be awesome, Just somethnig to get back and forth with. Its loaded with options though which i like

Thanks for any help guys, Shawn

What MODEL is she selling? You're going to probably want one with adjustble seat height. You need to go back and see if that seat is power (switches on the console or on the seat itself) or not.

They are very reliable if properly cared for, but we can't give you a 'general' blessing if we don't know details about the car you're looking at.
