I would get the automatic because the manual isn't available on either of the Touring versions (which has amenities that I am dying to have). Also I'm not too worried about interior space as long as the driver seat area is comfortable but the trunk was the one thing I needed to check. The local dealer hasn't gotten them yet but I'll be checking it out as soon as they do. Hopefully since they redesigned the 2014 model it'll be larger than the one you rented jw.

it was a couple years ago so it was likely 09-10 model. i get use to our bonnies interior and trunk which is what we take shopping and when we have others with us and everything else seems small. but it you dont do that then it doesnt matter. thats why i always had wbody coupes for my drivers because im always in it by myself.

We take the Mazda 3 shopping. It'* a hatchback, and with the rear seats folded down it has way more capacity than the Bonneville.

We looked a the Mazda 3 a while ago, we really liked them. The one concern, and it was a big one, was that miles per gallon was not good when compared to other cars of the same size. The Bonneville SSEi and the Mazda 3 with optional engine were pretty close in MPG.

I went and looked at this GTP today. It was rusted out really bad. To the point where I wouldn't feel safe driving it.

1992 Pontiac Grand Prix, low price, nice interior, come take it for a spin!!!

The pictures made it look promising, cause I didn't see any rust on the body. The ground effects does a really good job at hiding all the major rust. When I saw this car in person it looked way worse than the pictures.

That price seemed really high. Someone needs to take that car and part it out and scrap it. I love my 3.4 DOHC engine.

I saw a white VR sedan at the gas station today. I talked to the owner and he said he is the second owner and he has owned the car since 91. The car was kind rusty, and needed work. I offered him cash on the spot. I thought he would take it, but he wouldn't sell. I offered a bit more and still no. I guess I'm still on the hunt for one of these rare cars.

You ever wonder if any GM engineers are sitting around thinking, "WTF was I thinking when I designed that car?!"

I know I would be after seeing that wagon.
