Default 2001 Bonneville SLE...new to the forum

Hello all,I am Jim and I have just purchased a Bonneville.I had a 1997 GMC Jimmy but got tired of putting $ into it..So I traded it in a couple of days ago.I tell you what.This car is the most smoothest quietest ride I have ever owned.Thumbs up to Pontiac and GM for making an awesome car.I just have a couple questions..Does this car have any trouble areas?I know the Jimmys and Blazers had ball joint,cpi and fuel pump issues.I was just curious on what I should watch out for.Thank you for any replies and it is a pleasure to meet you. Jim

watch for the rear window regulators.. they may go down and never go back up...
and also, notorious for wheel bearing wear...

i have a 2000 SE with 87k on it, the only thing ive had to do is change the battery and the Right front wheel bearing is staring to develop a little play.. other than that the car has been perfect
