I'm going to hold on to my ssei at least for a few more years. Sure gas costs are important, but not having a car payment is as well, lol. Maybe in 2-4 more years I'll get a new or off- lease car, but for now I'm enjoying having no car payments!

Edit* I'm also a little loathe to give up my whine for a slow eco-friendly car. That said, the Malibu hybrid looks kinda nice.

I'll get rid of it eventually, but not anytime soon. I foresee a Nissan Maxima in my future about retirement time (four years).

Wink ponchoone 92

Hi:
I am new to this site and looks great.
I bought my first 92 bonny (SSEI) 6 years ago and found it to be a great holiday car. On a 500 mile trip that is basicly flat road have got as much as 35 miles per gallon. (Canadain Gal) Running around town better than most cars.
Recently left a new Honda high end in the dust up hill. When we got on the flat he roared by me, I just laughted.
Bought a second 92 bonny for $500 and fixed it up. I am into electronics and found bad sensors and front wheel sensors open. Runs great, Like a V8

Never give it up! Never had anything so reliable and fun to drive. Would only upgrade to Supercharged. Girlfriend has a GP GTP coupe. I love the 2 door but the interior is lackluster and very plasticy.

I have an 05 GXP and dont drive it much (less than 20K since new) but drive it even less now as it is terrible on gas (14.6 MPG Avg City Highway Mix) But I will NOT Give this awesome machine up!
Just bought my son an imacculate 2000 SE Loaded with 33K 1 owner miles (9/22/0 and it is clean clean clean.
Looked at a G8 GT When I was picking up my sons SE - G8 - Engine Mexico - Trans? Final Assy St Elizibeth Australia, how is this a Pontiac or an american car for that matter?

The motorcycle route works. I use mine as much as possible and the GXP Comes out when needed. I get over 64MPG on my motorcycle so I do not care the GXP is a gasaholic!
