Default Red Tag Sale

So what do you guys think the next sale will be after the red tag sale. I am thinking that GM will discount the remaining Bonnevilles more after the sale ends Jan 3rd. Has anyone heard anything or what are you opinions about the sale.

I have no idea. But a dealer will after Jan 3rd discount it a ton. But will still have a (magic) price he needs to fetch in order to sell it and not get his pants taken off. On a loaded SLE lets call it 23-24 ish... I would guess that is ONLY a guess. But I am sure if you wait long enough and risk not finding the SLE you want the will get that low. Its a game trust me. I waited to long to find a cheap 04 and so I got an 05. Personally act now call whomever has the SLE loaded that you want if they didn't quote you and get it before it sells to someone different. You and your mom deserve that car!

They are already offering massive discounts on Bonnevilles.

Gotta clear out that stock I guess.

Funny, I NEVER EVER EVER see an ad on TV for a Bonneville...in fact I havent since the 90'*. Did GM ever produce a marketing plan for the 00+?

I think the last Bonneville ad i remember was 11 years ago when my mom was looking for her 95. It was the Luxury with attitude ad that compared an SSEI to a 525 or 540. No one in the ad could believe a Bonneville let alone a GM could be better and cheaper than a BMW.

Yeah they had a spirit of Bonneville on in late 00-01 at least I saw it. The other one I can recall was the famous salt flats on in a ruby red SSE. I posted it here once. That was a great ad!

yea, there was a bonneville 00 ad on t.v all featuring an all black SSEi, sort ah like the new body styled TA t.v ad.

I'm glad sales are going on now for the bonnie, this is a great chance to cop an fully loaded SLE (pre 05) I'm hoping to catch one of those SLE limited'* with that tri-coat paint.
