Chevy Colorado

I left a deposit on a new 2018 Extended Cab z71 Colorado. Picking it up in Albany Saturday.

We'll see how I like the truck life.

PS Buying a GM vehicle is a pain in the ass with all the stupid rebates, etc.

PPS The Cayman and e91 are toast. Those interested, form a single file line, please

You know what's even better than buying a domestic vehicle? Service and warranty work.

Enjoy! (from one of the other few domestic vehicle owners here.)


Edit:
I'll start the bidding on the Cayman at $25k. Good? I can pick it up on Monday.

Iílll just say that my experience with GM service was not good, especially for warranty work (the screen issues were never fixed on my CTS - and kept getting worse).

My other domestic has had a great service experience though...
