i would also like to take the time to bash the crap out of GM. the '05s are up to like $35k while the mustang gt is at around $25k and is barely .2 slower. also looks like a million bucks compared to the gto'* bland A$$ (sorry felt the need to say the "a" word) grand prix/sunflower looking body
Not to mention that one can get a fine performing, real sports sedan for cheaper. An Infiniti G35 sedan starts at what, $28-29k US? It'* faster than an SSEi/GXP (the G sedan should run high 14'* in automatic form), superior handling by what should be a longshot, better interior, RWD, the list goes on. The G is a shorter car, but the wheelbases are the same.




GM'* pricing logic wasn't too great. :(

Employee pricing seems to be working though, Ford and Daimler-C are picking up on that finally as well.

It is working, do you think its a good idea tho guys? Cause some people think its stupid and they will sell all stock out and not have anything to sell! I personally think its a nice idea and glad Ford and DCX followed!

I see the employee discount as a very short-term thing that might hurt GM.





After the deals are over, who would now want to pay full price for a GM?

Whatever sells and keeps gm from going under water is 'special' for gm. As for paying full price for a gm. Gm can keep the employee discount going for the long term and I wouldn't be suprised if they did because people are coming to the dealership as for gm they can tack on a few extra thousand to an asking price call it an employee discount and people will still come because they are getting an 'employee discount' I'm sure gm had this all plained out in the first place.
That'* my two cent plus a conspiracy theory mixed in for good measure

What'* wrong with the SE?

wondering the same...

When I drove the 2004 GA SE, I told my coworker if she didn't buy it I would... I am not a fan of smaller cars, But I really liked the way it rode and drove.... It had Keyless and Pwr everything
