i would ike to be able tolock the windows
i wouldlikethe vents to be in a less retarded place tna right behind the steering wheel where mostof the air wont reach you
they shouldve used thicker guage wire or something forthe headlights cause i always find them t be dim so i rigged up direct switches for them battery-switch-light and they get alot brighter
i also dont like the fact that the a/c HAS to be on if you select defog,it wastes energy and sometimes air circulation is enough
ive got no complaints about the brake but better ones could never hurt
i would alsolike a folding rear seat
and i know its kind of frivilous but a voltmeter wouldve been nice, i mean they already made the dashgigantic, whats one more gauge?

I'll have to agree with the lack of 60-40 split, fold down seats. Case in point, today I had to pick up a 6' pantry for my condo. I have this huge 94 SSEi and the damn box (no more then 7" high by 14" wide and 6' high was not going to fit in my car. I had to resort to using my girlfriends' sisters husbands 03 Alero GLS, with..ya you guessed it...60-40 seats.

The cabinet fit like a charm.

Why should I have to use a smaller car to transport furniture?

Cars are for riding, trucks are for hauling. I wouldn't want to haul something in my car that might scratch the leather or rip it.

I don't really see the need for the pass through to the trunk except when I was younger my friends would drink and hide the cooler in the trunk and could reach through for another one and put the empties in the trunk in case we got pulled over.

I'm aware of wear advantages of drum brakes, but rear discs, in my opinion, should have happened by the 1988 SSE. It is a flagship performance sedan, and should be equipped accordingly.

But no, even a 1999 SSEi has drums out back. Way to go GM

The only thing I wish my car had was an extra warning label. The passenger door needs a label thats says "Hey dumbass, take your full drink out of the cup holder before you slam the door and get it all over everything." I also wish my car had HUD and AL7s, but those can be added.

Oh yeah I definitely agree with you guys that the location of the driver side AC vents are dumb, in the summer I'm very hot initally when I start the car and it takes a while for me to adjust the vents so I get some air, usually I have to use the passenger AC vents to cool me down.

More cupholders in the front? No way, I'm sufficient. window locks would have been nice, and the cupholders on the door panels was dumb, I found out the hard way

the cupholder problem you have is the 96+ doors...they are worthless....the 92-95 are a Far superior design and hold the drinks better

Oh I'm sure you're right Pat, I've never seen the interior of a 92-95 Bonnie. The door cupholders can't even contain a large drink or a xl drink like a 44 oz without you freaking out if it would fall out.
