Four year old ride brother Sid - putting everything else about GM aside - their biz model doesn't revolve around long term resale value for any product line. It does revolve around you getting another one from them at the end of the lease. Fair enough - your machine will still last the life of the extended financing and perhaps beyond if you keep it up. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Glen Frey - All She Wants to Do Is Dance http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/045.RAM
