$40,000 Truck!

I was at the GM dealer getting an oil change on
my Buick LeSabre (old peoples car) and noticed a
sporty looking P/up for $40,000. It was sharp !

But I'll keep my used $20,000 MH for now. Can't
live too long in the back seat of a P/up if things
get realy tough, especialy at age 68.

Just a thought.

X2 on that $55,000+ price. I was at the dealer getting an oil change for Dave's Jeep the other day & spied a sweet lookin 3500 Laramie diesel dually with that price tag. It had all the bells & whistles anyone could want. They really are getting expensive, aren't they? For that price, it better come with a chauffeur!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

The sticker on my dually 1 ton diesel was $15,999 before dickering on it.

Of course, it was 3 months out of warrantee.

I like "paid for"

My '91 Dodge/Cummins was $18,000 out the door - my '02 was $32,000...

People today steadily resist and deny the clear signs of where our economy and the nation are headed - and cost of vehicles doesn't begin to cover it.

Bad times, worse than we can imagine, are just around the corner...

Sounds good - but dealers are not nearly as generous on the diesel trucks...

Sticker on our 2002 F-250 was a whopping $24,795. It has shift-yerself 4wd, an FM stereo, Cruise control and AC. And that's IT. Put some new tires & wheels on it last year. Still looks and runs like the day I got it... I've towed a 36' Challenger 5th wheel with it (among other things), still has the original battery in it even. The ONLY thing I've had to fix was a lower radiator hose clamp. (knock on my head!) --- Good bang for the buck.

I can't imagine dumping 50 large for a pickup truck. That's all I spent on our $178,000 motorhome!

My days of buying a lot of new vehicles are over as they have become rediculously overpriced. I believe dealers will be in for a rude awakening in the near future if prices don't start to become more affordable.
