Default I have a question!

Did the 2000 and newer Bonnevilles come with a DVD System option?
How rare is it to find Leather in an SE?
Is 75,600 Miles High for a 2000?


I would sooo love the help....

No on the DVD.

Semi-rare. Maybe not so uncommon on a 00+, but on a 92-99 it isn't common, that'* for sure.

75k for an 00 is pretty high IMO. Put this in perspective. I have 150k on an '89. That car is 5 years old, and my car is 16. I am a little low in the mileage dept. however. But, 15k/yr on that car seems a little high to me.

Use the mileage for haggling.

Well, the system must be aftermarket. DVD Players were not an option, tv'* were never supposed to be in our cars. You must keep in mind, that with high mileage, is the care that was taken of the car. The car could have been beaten up, and just not well maintained, and then you are going to have a lot of problems down the line.

I am guessing you aren't mechanically inclined? You may want to bring along a friend who is, to give the car a good looksy. I have gone car shopping with a lot of my friends, and I have turned down about four cars total, for two people. And I haggled the **** out of some cars. Trust me, having someone mechanically inclined along will help you great deals. Like saying x is wrong [when it could really be nothing], and using that to bring the price down.

The DVD was not an option. You should find out what kind of DVD. Is it for a navagation system or a movie system ?
Either one would have been aftermarket.

Leather would be somewhat rare, as it was only standard in the SSEi and optional with other models.

Normal average mileage for autos is 15K per year. Much higher if it was driven by a salesperson.

Happy hunting.

.....find a whiner. You'll be much happier.

I'm not exactly stupid when It comes to cars. I just realize that what I am looking to spend isnt gonna get me a car with 25k for miles. And that doesn;t bother me. My father and occasionally Matt go with me when I look at cars...so I don't go alone I know how they treat females.

I'm not sure whta sort of dvd thing it has I didnt get to look at it becuase I had to work all day my mom and dad looked at it. I think we may go back and look at the car after I get outta Surgery on Monday.

My mom called me and said she found me a Bonneville in which my reply was "eh" then she said it was an SE and I said "eh I don't want it" but then she rattled off it had leather and such and I was a tad suprised. I hafta have a car that has leather, cd player and I would like it to have a power sun/moonroof. Se isn't relaly what I want if i had my choice I'd got for an SSEi but who knows...I'm still gonna try to find my Lincoln. My parents also found a 98 GTP with 49k on it for like $11,8xx but its dark green

I duno we'll see...I'll let everyone know...hell I've never even drove a damn bonneville before...hahah
