Great used car!

Most any GM car with a 3800 engine makes a great used car. Many people complain about resale value, but if you're on the buying side of one of these cars, its a great opportunity. The 3800 engine is well refined and quite reliable. Performance is great with some real torque muscle at your disposal. Since the Bonneville is such a large car, things are nice and spread out under the hood, making it easy to do a lot of your own maintenance. Plenty of room for the family and very reliable. I drove my 91 Bonneville to 186000 miles. I'm currently driving a 99 Bonneville and have about 100000 on it and still going. No major problems. Just typical wear items.

I'm quite disappointed

I bought my Bonneville used with 76,000 miles on it three years ago. I just traded it in yesterday when I had every intention of keeping that car for many years to come. The reason? The transmission is going kaput. And the fuel pump is following close behind in needing to be replaced. I wasn't aware when I bought this car that transmissions in this style of car rarely last beyond 100,000. I was at 97,300. If it would cost less than $2,400 to replace, I'd keep it, but that's too pricey of an item to fix. I'm just really disappointed because in the past three years, this car has been very dependable.
