I think that I would take the Bonne over the Acura and the Infinity any day IMO
If it is a good company they would have some product pride and want the car to be right and take care of the customer instead of trying to sweep it under the rug. As far as them at least offering a paint job I had to force them to do that, they wouldn't meet with me until I filed ! I don't think you understand the scope of the defect, the doors need to come off, the lower cladding removed and the glass has to come out. I have been to the top bodyshop in the area and they recomend the buyback even after I said I would want them to do it. They said it would be $5,000 to $6,000 to do the job right. Going back to the GM dealer he said the same thing as GM will not pay them to do the job right , they will make them cut corners so go for the buyback. I have been a good customer for 20 years, I did not create this problem and I am only asking what I paid for - no more - No less. You seem to think they are doing me a favor , at 37,000 msrp I shouldn't be able to see white primer all over my car. I did take the GXP over the TL and G35 but mine has a problem and the company first tried to make me go away, I sent two cert letters to pontiac and they still wouldn't meet with me so I filed. Now they want to try a repaint because they see I won't go away.
