General Motors - Do Not Buy Unless UAW Employee
Non Employees Gouged - Complaint
Having read ads for mid level vehicles in the newspapers for months, I decided to go over to a couple dealers and see what the prices for a P/U or similar small SUV would actually be. That asterisk next to the price in the newspaper ads has nothing to do whatsoever with what they will charge YOU if you are not a GM employee or family member.
In fact, the real price of a mid priced vehicle for a nonemployee is about....Get this! $5,000 to $7,000 over that advertised price that sucked you into the dealership. That's right folks. The TARP money that your kids will be paying off for their entire life wasn't enough. They will extort more money out of you by you essentially subsidizing employees' vehicle purchases, if you are sucker enough to pay the non-employee price for one of their vehicles. Chrysler does the same thing by the way.
Don't double your contribution to TARP a corporation that doesn't know how to run itself - or that loathesome union that is corrupt as they come and pays high school grads like they're rocket scientists. Just buy some other brand.
Of course if you are fortunate enough to be an employee of GM (or Chrysler) don't waste time with comments here - send Ron Gettlefinger a thank you card. Its a sweet deal, chump!
