Is that the orginal warranty or an extended one? I based my comment on what I found on MSN Autos

If the Charger/300 was a huge hit, the G8 should be the same.

I have no idea why the constant comparisions to German sports or lux sedans. Its senseless to me.

BMW/Merc/Audi do what they do very well and the G8 in its own right will do fine as well. If the sheer number of GP'* I see on the road are any clue, I can imagine the G8 will be a success.

Unfortunately, we aren't getting them here, so, all my praddling is 100% baseless

Original. Car had so many bugs when it first came out they doubled the warranty.

When I talked to the GM guys at the Auto Show here the other night, they said they haven't even been told what options will be available. That just goes to show how far behind we are up here Pretty disappointing if they are already taking orders in the US.

All 2002 and 2003 models. So far I have not needed to use it but I Imagine the original owner had his share of problems to be corrected.
