i may be wrong, but it doesn't say "take delivery by april 30". it just says purchased by. so it might still apply.

So the car costs less in the US, they get way more cars first than Canada, dealers in the US have way more info than cdn dealers, and they get help paying for the car if they lose their job and trade in values are helped? And yet the car is made by Canadians and we get the big fat shaft? one hit after the other against Canadians here. no perks.

with regards to us never getting the same incentives. Happens all the time, not just with GM.

GM needs to do 0% for 72 months on ALL vehicles. If they do that, they will sell cars. I may just sell my G8 to by a Camaro if they do that.
Ummm....We gave them taxes payer's money. They better start doing a little more for us!

Not exactly. It says April 1 thru April 30. All of us who ordered allready, ordered before the effective date. But I'll bet you my deposit that the effective date will be the date financing is obtained.

Well then I guess I'm confused. The press release says;
The "GM Total Confidence" plan is available for vehicles purchased April 1 through April 30, 2009. For more information, please visit gmconfidence.com

So is it June 1st, or April 30th ?

"You are not eligible if you are an active GM employee, a seasonal worker, are self-employed, retired or receiving a severance."

GM, WTF is that?! Basically this writes everybody off. Why bother to offer this plan then? I'm screwed because I'm self-employed? Absolutely retarded. I think GM needs to focus more on accomodating Americans that do more than their fair share of making this nation great, offering this plan and then giving them rewards for their loyalty and dedication to GM products. Does GM realize how many entreprenuers that are in this country? They need to stop being so damn selective. Otherwise, why bother to offer this plan in the first place?! I would think that at least three of the five qualifications listed for ineligibility would actually have steady income. Doesn't sound like GM has much "Total Confidence" in their customers and that is insulting. Retarded.

I'm mixed on this one. I can see how it will get people into showrooms, but more than likely it will get people into showrooms that have no business there to begin with.

Think about who this will 'protect' - the people without a sufficient emergency fund in place in case they lose their jobs in the first place. If you do not have at least 6-9 months CASH on hand to get yourself through something like this, you have NO business taking on a new car note.

This is a vicious circle for the automakers. While people are doing worse overall financially, GM needs more people to buy new cars, see the cycle? :(

I do not understand the GM employee aspect (although they will more than likely be putting many more people out of work very soon), but I can easily see this for the seasonal worker as well as the self employed. If you are self-employed, think how easy it would be to 'fire yourself' on the books and get 9 months worth of car payments for free
