These guys may very well have been told this stuff. They may not be intentionaly lieing. My salesman believes it's 60k and then get ready for the next MY. I just know better. They'll make them if we're buying them.

Yeah.... but think of how many MORE they would sell if every dealer told potential customers that they were going to stop making them any day now!!!! (And happened to have one in the showroom)

They sold 24K of them in 3 months and they were ramping up. They will have 60K by October.

I doubt the 2011 will be out in October.

Not that I would mind being able to finally get HUD and complete ABL by then, but I think they are not going to start the 2011 so soon.

More, no doubt but I wouldn't put my integrity on the line.

Hell, GM needs to sell a LOT more than 40k units this year to break even.

I doubt they break even on R&D for a while.
