1993 SLE is on a distinguished road
Default Im concerned

ok the new car for the wifey has been a long and hard road....I want her to get a Bonneville....(i even told her that i was going to break up with her if she didnt get a Bonneville :P )....N E way she is looking at a 02 GT with 40ish on the clock....ya its a based out model....no leather, no roof, no dual CC, NOTHING.....the car has had the front bumper repainted (its painted like the SE now) and it needs a new bumper cover in the rear (dealer taking care of that)

Here are the options....

fix here 97 Cavlier Z24 that only has 68K on it, needs New FPR, Strut mounts, new exhaust, and the TC wont lock untill its warmed up

Buy the 02 GT with 40K miles for $8,500, and she gets $3500 for her Z24, so she ends up paying around $6,000 for the GT out the door and then buy a new car (Bonneville) in a few years

opinions?

you'll dump alot less than $6K into the Z24 and have a nicer car until it'* Bonny time.

edit: I didn't mean nicer in a defaming way.

she needs a car that has no more that 50K and is at least a 00...thoes are the stipulations...for the simple face if anything goes wrong her dad refuses to help her with any car problems that might arise.

her dad wont even acknologe that the FPR is bad (its spraying out fuel, and you can see it, plus you cant use the heater cause it smells like gas) its a $30 dollar part and he wont replace it

her parents are selfish and wont help her at all

I like my gp but mines a 97 and Jeff really likes his 04 gp. I think Jeff like my gp more than his own because of the body style. It also looks a lot like his 99 gp gtp that he wrecked.
