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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

How wold you like me to answer that? ;~)
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

I am talking about equal, not a formula for equal. I pay a dollar you

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
