I don't care who you are, that there is funny!

The Ecodiesel release fiasco, not so funny.

Couldn't agree more. I have some thinking to do on my situation.

Thanks Pat.... needed the comic relief....

Talk about poor communication. Who do they think they are GM. Crap I didn't say that.

QUOTE=chevyboy_711;839700]You know, I really hate to be the guy to say I told ya so, so I won't.. But if someone could help me find that post where I detailed what the CRDeal is, that'd be great.. I can't seem to locate it. And feel free to post it here if you like. [/QUOTE]

Yes, I know you told us. I did forget your explanation when I wrote my post. I just wish they would stop advertising this version of the GC like it is readily available because it is frustrating to those of us who would like to purchase it. Advertise the other versions like the a$$-kicking SRT but don't get customers hyped up for something they cannot buy. That is just bad marketing in my opinion.

I'm going to dwell on this overnight... But at this point I'm still going to stick it out.

Not happy.

With you there but I drove by the dealer's place and he still has my Mercedes on his lot so I may just wind back the whole thing and give back the loaner. He told me I would have it this summer and that was what we wrote the deal on.

No, this is brilliant marketing ... deceiving but brilliant. Next year? Hybrid with 50MPG. Is it going to happen? Who cares, as long as it exists on paper (just like diesel this year) you can advertise it.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Could it be that other markets are paying more for all the diesels they can produce ? When in doubt, follow the money.


OTOH anyone remember the 1973 Super Duty Grand Prixs ?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I'm starting to think the guy that posted about slamming the Facebook page is on the mark.
