Default Video and Pictures of the Bonneville I want to get

Here you go comment away people.

2001 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SSEI TURBO CHARGED/ SUPER CLEAN

it has 156K on it and it is a 2001.

The check guage low oil pressure light is on but thats about it. Any ideas why this might be a sensor being bad or a oil control sensor?

Let me know

Nice looking car. Not sure about the description Super turbo charged and THE OVER HEAD HOLOGRAPHIC SPEED ODOMETER. Hmm, the car is supercharged and has a HUD, just like any other SSEi. Check out any SES lights the car may have. The oil pressure light is most likely a bad sensor. Easy fix.

Another thing dont know if u noticed in that video, but the hood is bein held open by a piece of wood, which means the actuators have gone bad. also the guy says "nothing seems to be leaking" yet he never takkes the enging cover off, and if anything is gonna be leaking, valve cover, LIM gasket, etc it would be under there. I'd really check this out before purchase.

So it seems it is just the oil sensor module might be bad. But my deep gut tells me to not do the deal with this car, I don't know why but I just don't feel right giving up a paid for mustang for a car with high mileage and problems like this one has. So I am still on the lookout for a better deal.
Thisquote is from your last post about trading your mustang in for it

I thought you decided against this car? What made you change your mind?

If I remember right it was listed as 2001 PONTIAC SSEI SUPER CHARGED BONNEVILLE 3995.00 and now it'* listed as a 2001 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE SSEI TURBO CHARGED/ SUPER CLEAN for 4995.00

Is this the same car? Why are they trying to get another 1000.00 for it?

It seems shady to me.

Check out ebay and our for sale section, I know a few new rides are up for sale

I would hate to see you get screwed over

OK, I watched the video, and it'* hard to tell for sure, but is the gap between the front and rear doors uneven? It looks wider at the bottom then the top. I suggest looking at that real close. He also had a passenger side door ajar, This leads me to think it'* been lifted wrong and is bent. Check this very close. $4000 is a bit high from what I'm seeing. Hood don't stay up, missing coolant over flow cap, bad oil sender? Not sure here, why does the DIC say low pressure, but the gauge is right where it should be.

Definately check the CARFAX, especially since that passenger door is not lined up right at all
