Hey, I have narrowed my search down to a few cars and was wondering if I
could get some feedback on them. I'm looking for a "fast" FWD car that
could handle decent in the snow, as I live in NE MN. Feel Free to add some
recomendations, Under $4,000 or a little higher and I might be able to find
one. I know, but these cars except the Talon are at a dealer that has
incrediably cheap prices. Thanks Much.
1997 Bonneville SSEI 93k $3,300
1998 Bonneville SSE 95k $3,000
1997 Monte Carlo LS 120k $3,975
1999 Monte Carlo Z34 120k $3,975
1997 Chrysler LXI 109k $1,995
1997??? Dodge Avenger 120k Not Sure
1995 Eagle Talon TSI FWD 118k $4,100
Monte Carlo Z34
Okay, Thanks, the SSEI might be a 1998, I'm not sure. So even with the Supercharger in the Bonneville the Z34 would be just as fast? The Z34 doesn't have a Supercharger does it?
Alright, so nobody else has any input for me. I haven't just narrowed it down to those few but that's what I've found so far. So if you have some other models in mind let me know please. Thanks Much.
Talon TSI for sure. Thats the only worthwhile car on that list.
maybe if it was AWD.
Okay Thanks, Keep your opinions coming. Can you guys tell me how fast each of these cars are, like 0-60, 1/4 Mile and Top Speed. Thanks.
From a roll the FWD will beat on the AWD all day. AWD only helps with launching and in snow, otherwise its just a weight problem. FWD are still good. Everyone loves the SRT-poors and they're FWD. At least the Talon looks good.
Let's not forget about the main issue here guys lol.:thumbs:
I would go for the Talon or the Avenger, but thats mainly personal preference.
A Talon TSI, or an ugly non-turbo Talon wannabe. Right, hard choice.
I still say the Z34 over the bonneville, and especially, IMO, a Talon.
Personally, I like the SSEI. It's roomy, got some go to it, and IMHO it
looks good. The Talon is nice too, but since it is the oldest car, has 25K
more miles than the Bonny, and is the most expensive, I'm not too crazy
about it. Also, you should be able to google the performance #s for those
If you like those cars you might want to check out Taurus SHOs.
Why would you want a slow car instead of a not slow car?
Hondas run pretty well in the snow and I am pretty sure almost all of them
Look at this car. '98 civic sedan with 1 mile on it for 4k.

Don't know if that's a good deal, but maybe civics are cars to check out.
1 mile on the car in 8 years? Most likely an error, if it isn't, I'm not so sure I'd want a car that has been sitting 8 years. Plus it doesn't really match the other cars he said he liked.
If I was going to get a FWD with decent performance, I would probably be
looking at hondas.
And yeah the ad is probably errored. lol
I know people have different definitions of performance, but that's a new
low to me. That is about as slow as slow gets. Not saying it's a bad car,
but it should be right near the bottom of the list along with "tricycle"
when it comes to performance.
The Civic Si and S2000 are IMO performance oriented, but not a stock 1998 Civic.
You're right, sorry. I forgot that older civics are mad slow and have like
1.1 liter engines under the hood.
I had the newer civics in my mind for some reason.
and 1400's, 1600's and 1800's
It's also a sedan if I read that right :orglaugh: . If you want honda, get a civic hb or an si coupe.
Thanks everybody for all of your input. I'm going to go check out some on Monday and I'll let you know if I get one.
