Default Hello all...

New member...

My first car was a 93 Bonny SLE, Loved it to death, literally, I went through 3 transmissions in almost 200K mi.

Getting ready to buy a 2000 SSE from my dad, wantedto know what you all thought of the deal...


2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSE

3.8L Pushrod V6
All Power
Moon Roof
Halogen Headlamps
Dual Zone Climate Controll
Leather Interior
Aluminum Wheels
AM/FM/CD
New Brakes/Rotors
New(er) Tires (Goodyear AquaTread'*)

Comes with a YAKIMA Roof bike rack that looks really nice on it.

He bought it new, and It'* been solid as a rock. One accident (rear end), completely fixed up, with no lingering effects.

145,000 miles

Only known problems:

1. Traction Controll isn't working (may be an easy fix, it'* a newer problem)

2. ABS goes in and out (Light is on sometimes, and off others... Not a false indicator, but I actually prefer not to have ABS, I guess I'm just old school like that)

(1 and 2 are definitly related)

3. Backlight on Raidio LCD is out

4. Minor cosmetic damage on roof (I pulled into a parking bay with a bike on the roof, popped the rack off... nothing I couldn't fix with a rubber mallet...

5. Gas Gauge no workey... Just use the Trip odometer, and fill up ~every 300 mi.

Grand total: $5000 + tax/title/licence/insurance

The thing that makes this a good deal for me, is that right now I'm unemployed, but my dad owes me about $1500. That will cover my first two payments of $500/mo (to my dad = no interest ) and also all the associated fees with getting insurance and title transfer.

And, I'll have time to find a job before I start making payments.

Also, It'* my dad, so he'* not gonna go crazy if I'm a few days late on a payment or something.

What do you all think??


I'll post this in Genreral chat just in case it will be better recieved there.
