    May the best car win

    GM will allow buyers of new GM vehicles to return them, no questions asked, for a full refund within 31 to 60 days.

    What's to stop someone that has no intention of "permanently" buying one of GM's vehicles to take advantage of this marketing campaign?

    Re: May the best car win

    Well if you are going to go through the 4 hours of negoiating and filling out paperwork for a new car, you are probably going to keep it after 30 days. Plus I am sure there is going to be another 4 hours of paperwork and phone calls to return the car then try to get your taxes and licensce fees back.

    sounds like a big pain in the ***.

    One of those deals that's "easier said than done." I doubt GM really expects many people to really take them up on this deal.

    Right. This isn't going to be like returning a Craftsman wrench. There will be some paperwork, hemming and hawwing, as well as pulling of teeth to get that refund.

    Wish they would have had this when I bought my Saturn Aura I currently have. Would not have kept it, that is for sure.

    Re: May the best car win

    Is this 'guarantee' backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Treasury too ?

    Or is that just warranties for prebankrupt GM automobiles ?
