not a graduate (me anyway...my honey is)

So I guess I don't fit, but my hubby does...funny, 'cause I was the one who wanted it first. :P
I believe they may have been talking about household income

I see mostly younger people driving these cars...not the stated 50 and + range. hehe..yea, granny cars. That'* what you would call it too if you had to settle for the next model down... or worse...
Congratulations Tamara on your new purchase of a 3 year old Bonne.
You probably got it for around $25,000 Cdn.
Bet you wouldn't have been able to afford a new one at $44,000 + Tax.

I think that GM was referring mostly to people who buy the new ones, not used ones that are much less expensive.

Doesn't everyone like eating Rice.
Good point Bullet I was think'n tha same thing, there'* noo way I'd be able to afford a "Same year" Bonne unless I saved for a couple of years, good thing they drop in price soon as they leave tha lot.

Thanks...Actually, I paid $14,500 for it before tax. An SSEi....i got it at a STEAL (steal, crime, get it, haha) Because someone went to an auction for me and got it at wholesale instead of resale price. In the end though, after auction fees, compensation fees, and financing fees, it came to like $19,030 or something like that. I don't knw the EXACT price off hand but it'* 19 something
you're right though...couldn't have coughed up the $900 a month for the new one, or the $400 for insurance for it either.

Tamara and Hailey, you both made a great choice and got an even better deal.
Enjoy.
With those savings, you should be able to afford some delicious mods.

I can't wait to make a few modifications...and I must say, it'* so great having you here with basically the same car paving the road ahead of us, so to speak (you've made or want to make pretty much all the mods I want).
