I've owned one for several years before and I'd have to disagree with that statement.

I dunno man, I'm gonna disagree with yer disagreement, my 1989 Bonneville is still running like a champ. Paul cant say enough good things about that engine. Its going on 16 years now...no engine issues whatsoever, heater core issues now, but even when I had it, the only engine problem was the FPR and the timing chain cam sprocket.

Damn good engine, probably the best we'll see in a LONG time.
