Default New Bonneville owner and new Here too

Okay, after I blew my crappy little tech4 grand am I was using as a work car I just bought a Silver 96 Bonneville on impulse. I don't know why.....just felt right lol. It has the V6 3800 series II. The car Drives and rides real nice, all electronics work, interior looks good, can not see any rips. It has a few small scratches and a dime sized ding or two. I paid $3400 for it. So tell me.....am I going to regret this? I have owned a GM 3800 V6 in a buick and never had any trouble with it. I have never owned a 4 door before....this car is so "not me" but it just called my name....and when I drove it I knew I was taking it home.

Just so you have a clue who I am, I am 28. I have been in the army for 7yrs. I am a desiel mechinac. I can not spell to save my life (hooked on phonics never worked for me). I have been married for 8 yrs next month, we have 3 kids.

Thanks, hope I enjoy this car and this site.....wish me luck.

I am not sure what trim level this car has, I know it has power every thing, even seats and twilight sentenal headlights, not sure if they all came that way though...

No...you will not regret this! Luxury with an Attitude, among other things. You have a Virtual Mechanic at your fingertips here. Any question you have, someone will either have the answer, find the answer, or physically fix the problem for you.

Great car....great club....no regrets....ever. Besides, if you want to sport it up some, there are a ton of ideas and things you can do to it.

And the family fits in it nicely too!
