Default my new bonneville ssei

just picked up a 02 SSEI with 80k miles. i like it alot. has some bubbly rust under the gas filler door which im having a hard time finding a body shop that can fix it for me. other than that i love the car. much nicer all around than the escalade i traded for it.

Ride quality, rides nicer, dont ride like a truck
Handling, dont handle like a truck
acceleration its fast and not a slow clunky truck
Gas milage, 25mpg+ compared to 12mpg tops!
ammenities such as the computer with the gas milage and and tire pressure monitors ect., digital dual zone climate control

honestly the only thing i miss about the escalade is being able to haul a full sheet of drywall. lol but i can always rent a home depot truck.

Great looking, Dadillac! I can seen the hesitancy of a body shop wanting to fix just the area around the gas cap filler. Matching the paint around it and blending it into the quarter panel isnt easy. Car is now 7 years old and faded from new for sure.
