Default Why?

All you Bonneville owners, I just want to know one thing... why? What is it about the Bonneville you love, why do you have such a passion for them (if you do, of course)? I'm sorry, don't mean to be prejudice, all you non Bonneville owners.

It was between Impala SS, GP GTP, or Bonne SSEi. Found the Bonne for the best price.

I can't answer for the SSE SLE or SSEI guys... But I can say that the GXP while at first look wasn't for me... I could not get over the Ride, Comfort,Feel, Control... Sound, Looks and Sleeperisms of it.

like someone said here... The GXP is just plain SeX

Well i love my bonneville because it stands out. Great gas mileage, great engine, Extremely reliable for an american car, safe, Exceptional seats, lots of trunk room, Comfortable ride, never left us stranded, appeals to everybody, and superb satisfaction.

I love the bonneville and i'm very excited to drive it. It has done me well, my dad well, and my family well when we needed it. All that for only $2500. no other car can match the great quality of the bonneville. I'm sure there are more reasons, many many more, but i'm just gonna say this.


Bonnevilles 4 LIFE

When I was looking to buy a new car around the time of my 18th bday, it came down between an 06 Grand Prix SE or and 03 Bonneville SE. The price of the Grand Prix was 12K which was double that of the Bonneville and it didn't ride as nice. Guess I got lucky by buying the Bonne because over the next few months I just found more and more that I loved about it. Smooth ride, lots of room, and looks great (well with the new bumper covers that is lol)
