A little birdie tell us GMC is raising its prices. Yes, raising.

GMC will announce revised 2009 model year prices effective for all Sierra and Yukon models produced on or after October 1, 2009. All model dealer discounts will be reduced. Dealer invoice amounts will increase accordingly.

Dealer price schedules will be available in GM Dealerworld under Sales &/Or F&I Tabs effective October 1, 2009. Reference administrative message (dated February 26,2004) for more information regarding this web site.

Sold order price protection eligibility dates are dictated by the customer and dealer order dates as follows:

-Customer order date must be prior to the date of the price increase.

-GM systems order date (date dealer enters in GM system) must be no more than one work day after date of the price increase.

These units will be invoiced at prices in effect at the date of production; however, the dealer open account will automatically be credited for the price increase once the unit has been delivered.

Fleet units ordered under the Bid Assistance or Cap Programs are price protected under the terms of those programs. Fleet units ordered with FVX, RFC, and VQ’s without VN9 or VX7 are order date price protected on the invoice and dealers have up to 4 work days (GM systems order date) after the day of the price increase to enter the order and the invoice will be priced before the price increase. Fleet units ordered with VN9 or VX7 are order date price protected on the invoice and dealers have up to 1 work day (GM systems order date) after the day of the price increase to enter the order and the invoice will be priced before the price increase. All other fleet orders will be price protected according to the bona fide sold retail price protection policy above. Refer to the price protection effective date on the invoice.

    It’s not 100% GM’s fault. Save some blame for our lousy politicians who are doing their best to rapidly destroy the little remaining value of the US dollar. This is the best thing that could happen to american industry, especially automotive, for 30-40 (especially the 80's) years the dollar was kept artificially overvalued as part of the cold war (Our dollar is strong, we are strong, and if we can buy everything everyone makes then they won't go commie) and just like England in 1919, that decision destroyed manufacturing through a competetive disadvantage that could only be made up by relocating (the other option, cutting cost of product, inevitably leads to cutting quality, which reduces purchases, which requires more cost cutting, etc. and we all know how that works out)

    jpcavanaugh : Excellent points- Malibu-Drove a previous version and you don't like the "look". Camaro- you prefer the heavier and less performing Dodge. (I guess it wasn't 5 years late). And you also point out a rumored trans problem that never seemed to exist. CTS- you almost give a thumbs up! You also erroneously cite resale problems for lack of a lease program (It's GMAC in case you didn't know) and of course you don't like the "look".

  • Mia Hey there!I recently stumbled upon the Crack Eraser DIY Windshield Repair Kit (check it out here: and decided to give it a shot on a small chip in my windshield. I have to say, it worked like a charm! Super easy to use, and it saved me a trip to the professionals. If you're dealing with a similar issue, this kit is definitely worth considering. 😊
  • Rust-MyEnemy Whoa, what the hell is wrong with Jalop1991 and his condescension? It's as if he's employed by Big Plug-In or something."I've seen plenty of your types on the forums....."Dunno what that means, but I'm not dead keen on being regarded as "A type" by a complete stranger"" I'm guessing you've never actually calculated by hand the miles you've driven against the quantity of gas used--which is your actual miles per gallon."Guess again. Why the hell would you even say that? Yes, I worked it out. Fill-to-fill, based on gas station receipts. And it showed me that a Vauxhall Astra PHEV, starting out with a fully charged PHEV battery, in Hybrid mode, on my long (234-mile) daily motorway daily commute, never, over several months, ever matched or beat the economy of the regular hybrid Honda Civic that I ran for a similar amount of time (circa 5000 miles)."You don't use gasoline at all for 30-40 miles as you use exclusively battery power, then your vehicle is a pure hybrid. Over 234 miles, you will have used whatever gas the engine used for 200 of those miles."At least you're right on that. In hybrid mode, though, the Astra was using battery power when it wasn't at all appropriate. The petrol engine very rarely chimed in when battery power was on tap, and as a result, the EV-mode range quickly disappeared. The regular hybrid Civic, though, deployed its very small electric reserves (which are used up quickly but restore themselves promptly), much more wisely. Such as when on a trailing throttle or on a downward grade, or when in stop-start traffic. As a result, at the end of my 234 miles, the Civic had used less gas than the Astra. Moreover, I hadn't had to pay for the electricity in its battery.I look forward to you arguing that what actually happened isn't what actually happened, but I was there and you were not."Regardless, that you don't understand it appears not to have stopped you from pontificating on it. Please, do us all a favor--don't vote."You really are quite unpleasant, aren't you. But thanks for the advice.
