    Since you guys can't buy new in the States and with GM's buyback going on will you be able to buy a new low mile truck as used. Just wondering if they will discount it enough to be worth it. Any thought?

    American trucks are backwards. Canadians don't use funny spedometers with mph!

    Nope. GM's new promotion. If you don't like your car/truck just return it for a full refund within 60 days or 3,000 miles. But then GM can't sell it as new must be sold as used. So that means Canadians can buy them and take them back.

    What kind of promo is that... are they not already in enough trouble...
    I guess most people are to lazy to return their trucks.

    They are figuring 2-4 % return.
