He has already learned that lesson by proxy........I have a Chrysler LHS! Thanks for all the great replies. I picked it up yesterday, and it seems to be a very nice car. I was much more in favor of the Audi A-4, but when I saw the Saab financing, I was won over. What a difference a few percentage points make. I was a tiny bit disappointed when I had to pay 1/2 hour labor on the armrest installation, but the did the wheel upgrade at cost (it's funny how much of a difference the wheels make in how the overall car looks) and didn't charge installation on them. They said we should change wheels in the winter when we put snow tires on. Does this sound right?
