Default What year Bonneville?

If per say you had to replace your Bonneville, what year would you replace it with?? Reliability wise, not necessarily performance wise.

If it is not a Bonneville what would you buy. Keep this realistic. It is gonna have to be used, reliable, etc...

Either a similarly-equipped LOW KM 94/95 SSEi or a loaded low Km 98/99 SSEi.

In all seriousness, a Grand Prix is a good replacement. They are very affordable, very fun to drive, and very reliable, just like the Bonnies.

I don't regret my switch to the GP from the Bonnie. I love this car ... and so do the ladies (no joke).

Yeah Sol brings up a good point, I would switch to a 2 door 98+ GTP before going to another Bonne. Just for something that'* the same but different. :P

I actually really like the Anniversary edition GPs.

I'd stick with 99 and it would either be the same green I have or Black. It'* the last year for my favorite body style and Consumer Reports gave it the best rating for dependibility in Bonnes from 95-99. I'd step up to an SSEi though, if I HAD to replace my SE.

As fond as I am of the 99 I'd jump on an anniversary edition 97
