I went from a 90 Eclipse to a Full Sized Bonne and it was what I was looking for. All of the options AND the power behind it.

Although I never have any money these days, if I were to have to buy another car, it would definately be another Bonne.

I agree..... My ideal would be a black 97 40th SSEi, but I'd take any 96 to 99 SSEi. 00 and up are growing on me and I like them but there'* something about the lines on the 92-95 I love.

Hell, might as well come out with it. I'm sniffing around some cars that may replace the Bonnie soon. It'* still undecided. Some cars involve the "F" word.

If I had the money to keep two cars, I would of kept my Bonne. It was a good car, definately a great second car. But, definately happy with the new Regal!

I'll never sell my Bonnie, it'* the one that I won't sell.

My other cars come and go pretty often, the other cars I have now I didn't have six months ago, and I'm sure at least one of them won't be in my name in another six months.

We have no intentions of selling our 99. It'* been an OK car for us (considering it has 155,000 miles and we bought it with 28,000 4 years ago). It has depreciated like a rock despite the fact it'* very well taken care of. In our area, we'd be lucky to get $2,000 for it. It'* worth more to us than it would be anyone else. We won't get rid of it unless we get into an accident or a cosly repair (that I can't perform) outweighs the value of the car.

We've talked about replacing it with a different daily driver. If we do, we won't sell the Bonnie--she'll stay in the family. It'* a decent spare car to have around...one that'* been paid off for a long time.

But, once it'* gone, it'* gone. This is our 4th Bonneville. It'll be time to move on.

SSEis are the sh**. There is still not a better car to be had for under $15,000. Period.




Ideally I would like a 99 and a 2002 SSEi in the garage along with a 2004 Comp-G that I will end up trading in for a 1 year old 15,000 mile G8..but thats in 2009. I'm gonna need a bigger garage. Perhaps I will find a wife soon and have an excuse for more of these cars.

It would be SO MUCh more wiser for me to sell the bonnie, she'* a money pit. But I can't, too much time and effort already and it was my grandpa'* car, who passed away. I want him ALWAYS to be with me
