I purchased it for $11,000. I am hoping to have about $1500 into it. I feel I got a good deal. My bank told me they thought it is worth about $19,000 in good shape. It has 49000 miles and from what I can tell is fully loaded. I have the window sticker and new it was over $39,000. What do you guys think? At first I thought I could fix it up and sell it but now we decided to keep it. We have baby #2 being born on tuesday the 18th and though it would be a good family car.

Once you get it right it will make a good family car..

we have seen a few of them totaled and in a bad way... And the occupants walked away every time... These cars hold up well and do their job in accidents... In my eyes with the youngsters that will be in the car.... This will make the perfect family car...

Just remember when they aren't in the car its " Luxury With Attitude "

imo the bonneville is not very roomy, especially for new borns. I have a 10 month old who is in a rear facing car seat and unless your short you couldnt ride when his pumpkin seat was in the car now his car seat is still rear facing but it doubles as a front facing one so its bigger and there is no way anyone can sit in the front with him in there (not even my wife and she is 5'1 )

ps nice gxp and welcome to the club!

and congrats on the new edition! (the baby that is )
