Default 2004 Bonneville GXP

Hi all...

I have been a Bonneville Lover since I had a 94 SSEI a few years ago, The days of that car have come and gone. Recently I had the plesure of purchaseing a 2004 GXP, and now the old feelings of being in a bonneville are back. Any one got any good info on any concerns that i should look for???. I verry rarely get a wiff of burning comming thru my vents...any info will help

Welcome to the site. I'm sure a few GXP owners will chime in soon.

As for the wiff of burning smell, is there a chance some leaves got in to the vent system?

Welcome to the forum!

I find that if you don't do as many burnouts you won't that smell through the vents
