Okay.. to be more specific.. Canadian GM dealers will not honour US bought cars' warranties after they're registered in Canada. Of course a travelling US car in Canada will be honoured. You slap on DayTimeRunning lights and Canadian plates, the GM dealers and/or GM Canada will NOT honour the warranty.
In terms of brake parts pricing. Do an all-around brake job on a Ford Fusion and a Malibu, and you will see a $1000.00 difference...at least around here. Same deal with the OEM parts... I'm sure it is okay to put somebody else's wiper blades on

Can you blame them, mang?

I can understand that.

That is the dealer sticking it to you but I can get brakes done at my local chevy dealer for <$350. My son just had that quoted to him.

That's a totally different animal than replacing 4 rotors at $250+ a piece (OEM GM) of a latter day Malibu. Make some calls... a complete remake of the brake system GM Malibu vs Ford Fusion. GM is screwing us now...started after the bail out.

I have to ask, why replace everything. Do that on an 05 Cavaleir and you inflate the price to probably $800.
FWIW GM has always been screwing the consumers by turning out a marginal to bad product. Speaking from an ex service sales manager, parts department manager, multi franchise parts director, wholesale GM of AC Delco parts distributor point of view.
GM has had some especially stinkers, the Olds Aurora had composite disks that had to be replaced if slightly grooved or damaged, I suspect that they might be doing the same on late models again but if the rotors were in good shape there was no need to replace them during a routine brake job.

Interesting... Looking online for OEM parts front rotors for a 2009 Malibu is $67 each. Front rotors for a 2009 Fusion id $83.
NAPA wants $45 for the Chevy and $65 for the Ford.

That is interesting. I will get further info when I visit my friend in Toronto this weekend. I'm sure your numbers are correct and that would be one helluva good reason to do some cross-border shopping. Stay tuned.

If the car's still under warranty, have the work done under warranty. Then it won't cost you anything. If the car's not under warranty, shop around; there's no warranty left to "void".

Wear items are not covered by the manufacturer so if you wear the brakes wear out, wear the tires out, or run the tank out of gas, that is on you to maintain the vehicle.

Yeah, I paid them between $18-21, can't remember exactly, for a small knob for the radio. I took care of the installation myself. While, I stood there acting PO'ed, he just asked, "Well, do you want it or not?"...LOL

LOL, as seriously as you mentioned that the corporations can say the same.

Make every thing equitable by everyone paying the same amount of taxes. Pretty simple really. We all live here and none of is more special that the next guy. Why should some one pay more or less than your do.

If we just require everybody to pay $100,000 in federal taxes for just one year, and then most of our nationals current fiscal problems will be over? Simple as what is said above, no?

Right, but also note that those corporations don't pay tax anyway. It's a cost of doing business and necessarily gets passed onto the consumer. Might just as well put the tax there. It's more efficient, if nothing else.

Ultimately I think every one should pay equally for services that they are getting. Like going to the store and buying a new TV or going to a base ball game, no discounts or price hikes for income level or personal wealth.

Well,...
"Equality" means different things to different people. I'd prefer a flat (rate) income tax, likely because it's easier to understand (the ramifications of) than "The Fair Tax".

I am talking about equal, not a formula for equal. I pay a dollar you pay a dollar. As you mentioned Equality can include a formula to make your amount more or less than my amount. Government taxes should the same and affordable by every one. I think this would eventually be obtainable if every one had equal interest in how the government spends our money.
