I like my GXP because it'* unique. It never had but one Bonneville emblem on the rear and that got shaved when the custom paint went on. I've had it for 3 years now since new and I still get "what kind of car is that" at the stores and gas stations. Looks and performs sporty, lots of room, and a rides like a Cadillac.

I like the room and luxury, and the look on the faces of little ricers when they see what it can do.

I like it because it'* like riding a Lazy Boy down the freeway! I also like the visibility, the style and the fact that it has much more potential that can be coaxed out of her.

I like that it is very comfortable and rides nice, and when shes all clean and shiny people never guess she is 9 years old

I'm with you guys. The comfort and room and yet the feel of a '4 door Sports Car'

As one great member once said:
Objects in mirror are losing!...or edit...ricers in mirror are losing

Very nice road car to for long distance trips to.

I like that my coworkers with their Toyotas, BMW'*, Lexus, and Mercedes spend thousands a year on minor repairs, yet I can rebuild / swap my entire drivetrain for less than $2k.

And I can still fit more people and stuff in my car than any of them.

Right on Andrew, cheap and easy to maintain (stock parts at least.) But I like my Bonne because it looks good and is comfortable car with lots of features.

Not to mention being able to blow peoples doors off, scare them with the supercharger whine.
