Default rolled the odo back about 150k yesterday

my old monte was starting to feel its age lately and this winter was rough on it so i been think about a new car, was looking at cruze eco'*, jetta tdi'*, saturn aura'*, g6'*. but everything gave up alot of room and features on the car i had. then i came across this;

look at it this way the 06+ monte only ran til 08 there fore if GM new they wer going to kill it then why have another front end. it'* all the finacial and budget issues that cause these things. the interiors are different between his and mine as well as from the fender back neither one of us can use eachothers body parts. i've seen the monte bumper on and imp and and imp bumper on a monte the mirrors are slightly different. all in all it'* comes down to GM saving money
