Webchatting on the FastLane blog, GM Reinventor-in-Chief Fritz Henderson wanted the world to know GM dealers don’t need no stinkin’ reinvention.
[Comment From Alfred ]
Mr. Henderson: what changes can we expect to see when we walk into a New GM dealer? What guarantees can you give us that customers won’t be mistreated and abused as before?
I think our dealers do a fine job taking care of customers, and if you personally had a bad experience, you can let me know and I would ask that you look at another fine gm dealer. most research that we see indicate that gm dealers are by and large a real competitve advantage.

I took a look at the maroon one - 39k sticker, 52k market price. I know this behavior creates lots of controversy, but in my opinion it’s not a good long term type of thing to do. In search of a CGM bone stock V6, maybe I should just look for bigfoot instead. Now this is the kink of bullshit that really pisses me off. Only a fool would pay that. For $52k i’d rather look at an E Class coupe. Lee: How could ya look at a Camaro for $52g, some 15-20% in dealer markup and think about a E Class coupe for that money. The G8 in top performance trim.. is more equal to a 5 series.. than a Camaro for the money.
More good news for GM. The Camaro is going to be recalled.
Lee: Supposedly, if ya lookin at 39g for a Camaro.. and it hits 52g, I'd be comparing / lookin at a SL or SLK from MB, or a Z3 / M3 / coupe / sedan from BMW for that money and power.. not the CLK / E Class coupe. Power v weight v fun factor. And you are also right... The interior of a 40g car shouldn't be that cheap. One reason why I just cant get into it. That and I equate the test drive experience of a GM vehicle with PORK.. = Against my religion. LOL. And last I heard... BMW customer service isnt so hot either. At least if ya walk into a GM store and drop 40g they look at you and treat ya like shit. If ya walk into a BMW shop, they just look at you as if ya aren't good enough. So its a battle Stuck-up v Shit. LOL. Horrible.. but funny and TRUE.
