GM Employee Pricing Returns

One more time! Maybe even literally. Strangely, GM's told its dealers that revealing the imminent arrival of "employee pricing for all" to the outside world would be a felony. So I guess you can call me Miss Demeanor (you know; if I wasn't a Silverado-loving man's man). Anyway, it's all over the damn web. Reuters reports [here and via Automotive News] that "the offer starts Wednesday, runs until Sept. 2 and applies to all 2008 model year Chevrolet vehicles, according to the dealer, who was not authorized to discuss the GM plan." See? The black ops are only a beat behind. So to speak. And if employee pricing isn't enough to pull in the punters, "the top-selling U.S. automaker will offer cash back on slower-selling light trucks, including the Silverado pickup, said the dealer, who had just been briefed by GM." Top selling? Slower-selling? Careful you don't hurt yourself pulling those punches. Anway, we now have confirmation that ALL GM brands are involved in the fire sale. Oh, and try and guess the Money Factor in a standard GM lease these days. It's 16 percent. Which will apply to the new Malibu on Wednesday.

    "... their histories with the Saturn and Sebring were enough to make them life long; “not” customers." I've been calling this Joining the Never Again Club for many years now. I should have trademarked the phrase :). I saw a local department store with a big banner out front declaring "Employee Pricing For All" last week. What once was a novel marketing idea is now so commonplace as to be silly. Ever since Lee Iaccoca admonished us to "Buy a Car, Get a Check" the US automakers have been falling all over themselves with pricing bs. Would someone please, please stop the noise? I am sick and tired of being yelled to/at by marketing messages every where I go. The desperation is sickening.

    Here's a plan for GM. If they are really worried about a shortage of parts in the near future and they have all these plants that aren't doing anything. Why not disassemble the 2008s at a shuttered factory with labor your paying to do nothing anyway and ship the parts to an operating factory to be reassembled as a 2009. They could say that it's their way of saving the planet by recycling cars.

    So who's complaining about employee pricing? I'm waiting to hear if I can get the EP along with substantial rebates on a certain GM economy car. If I can, I'm joining the GM clan. Toyota makes better cars but they don't make 'em with $5k total discounts!!

    GM Employee Pricing uh? I went to and they had me a killer price in minutes. That pricing is better than our regular GM Employee Pricing. I checked I think GM Employee Pricing rocks and plan on buying a new Tahoe with the $5,000.00 cash back. The delaer told me they might extend the GM Employee Pricing out thru the end of September. We'll see.
