    Looking hard at a 2009 G8 GT, and the dealer has some very, VERY aggressive promotions on right now.

    I know the government has stated they will honour the vehicles warranties, but what would the real world experience be like if GM were to go bankrupt? Could I expect the resale value to drop through the floor? :noes:

    Why new? They can't have enough 'deals' to make it worthwhile to buy over a used one.

    I'd do it. I keep cars a long time though. Why worry? Just go indulge yourself.

    Why would you buy new if you already know resale values are trash? Buy a used 08.

    I totally want the HSV VE 20's, but $4K for the rims alone is a bit steep. :rofl:

    buying any new car is foolish. Luxury cars particularly are dropping value like crazy, Mercedes being some of the worst. However if you do your research and don't impulse buy you can get a ridiculous deal on GM products right now.

    What kind of deal are they offering on the G8? When I was looking last month I could get a GT for around 26k...
