#240 of 344 GM Service Centers
Mar 12, 2002 (12:17 pm)
To answer your question Ken, yes and no. A high line import service center is obviously dealing with a different demographic than say a Chevrolet store. I would compare most MB and BMW centers to a stand alone Cadillac store in terms of customer service. It seems that all of these franchises are willing and able to assist with there customers problems no matter what they are as long as the customer is reasonable with the franchise.
As far as service for your Bonneville I would recommend finding a Pontiac store that is a GSP facility, (Goodwrench Service Plus). These are dealers who have committed to GM's higher standards of service and customer satisfaction. They will be the dealers with the most up to date service equipment an most lienieant SPOM's, (Service Parts Operations Manager). GM has an acronym for everything, for instance I work for GMDE, General Motors Dealer Equipment and Services.
So in short Ken there are good service centers and there are better service centers, just try to go to a GSP dealer whenever you can.

Tim, if you happen to see a light bronzemist 2000 SSEi with a Notre Dame sticker in the back window, that's me. We live in Morris and I was just through Oswego this afternoon.

That is the color I wanted, but the only one I found was at a Dealer I know in Merriville, IN and he had to much money in it.
You probably past my subdivision driving through, we live in Mill Race Creek, the one with the ponds and water falls out front on Rt43 across from the new Home Depot.

Hi! I'm Glenn and the proud new owner of a 2002 SSEi. Maple red w/taupe interior. First time I ever bought a car for personal reasons and not those darned "practical" reasons! I'm sure I will love it.
#247 of 344 Welcome Glenn

You'll find the Bonneville practical as well. Make sure you subscribe to the other Bonneville boards under Bonneville Owners Club. There are a lot of good guys there.

Welcome to the club. We hope to hear lots from you here about your experiences and ownership thoughts.
What equipment do you have on your SSEi?
What other cars did you consider before buying it and what factors influenced your decision?

Nice to have a new owner join the "family".
Next July will be my 1st year Anniversary and I have enjoyed driving the Bonnie very much.
I also have the Red Maple color for my 2001 SE Bonneville and enjoy the way the car handles and its performance (FYI: my last car was a faithful 1989 Escort LX with a 5 spd).
Enjoy your car and keep in touch...
