who would do this?? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Well, remember when 87 hit $2.07 a gallon and **** like that, then diesel was still cheap....I think they're left overs from when a shitton of people traded in their gas cars for the Golfs and Jettas that had the diesel'* in them that get 40 some MPG driving like a nutty escaped convict.

They were probably disappointed in the performance. I was. I think I'd buy a 2003 SSEi instead.

For just over $30 large you can get into something like a Jag X-type, Acuras, Subbie Legacy GT, all much better performers that really lick it to the Bonneville in every way.
