File for divorce.

Argue gas mileage, comfort factor, things like that. It'* not practical to get an SUV right now unless you have a lot of stuff to haul. Then you lose.

400 trade in? I'd say its worth keeping as a backup car depending on where you live and if its cheap to keep an extra car

(if you have inspections and stuff then it might not be a cost worthy decision)

Wow, if you could only get 400 for it, I say keep the Bonneville, and just buy whatever SUV she wants, if you end up having to buy the SUV.
