What is this discussion about?

I used GMBuyPower to get my Tahoe in January also and, I agree, it is a useful tool and saved me a lot of time.
My main point was that Ford's version (Ok, I admit it, I was actually thinking of an Expedition until my sanity took hold) is much better.
I liked that on Ford's, it would bring up a list that compared them to the one I had "built". It would then note the differences, where applicable. The GM site is just so time consuming since you have to actually look at the sticker to see how it compares.

I had a great experience with GM Buypower when buying my Aveo, I was in and out of the dealership in 2 hours, with $3000+ off sticker to boot.
The big problem I have with the service is the way the search works. Searching one dealership at a time for one specific model? Very slow! If I search for a car, I should be able to choose how specific my search is, and define a searchable radius of dealerships.
And I would also like if dealerships would post sale prices on the site rather than automatic sticker, but that's just wishful thinking.
#75 of 75 GM, look in the past for your great designs

I've read some praises of the 1st generation Monte Carlos of the 1970's...and like these people, I love them too. I also love the bigger 2nd generation Monte Carlos of which I own 2 of them..a 1974 and a 1976 model. To GM: Why is it you can't learn from companies like Daimler-Chrysler and Ford when they will bring back a very pleasing car design of the past and incorporate modern technology into it. Like the Challenger that is suppose to come out in a few years or so..looks outwardly just like the early 70's version and has plenty of go power and a manual transmission to go with it!! Fords retro styling of the Mustang is beautiful too. Why will GM and Chevrolet not listen and learn from these people??? I've heard the 'so-called Monte Carlo' of today is on the chopping block for another year. To me, there hasn't been a 'real Monte Carlo' since 1988...Monte Carlos are only!! V-8 powered, rear wheel drive cars!! Thet are not supercharged V-6's with automatic O/D transmissions that are basically run of the mill GM junk..cookie cutter cars for the masses and with a brilliant paint job...No No No..Hey GM..How about looking at building a 1971 Monte Carlo for the consumer nowadays and incorporate modern technology into it...I bet it would be a good seller!! I know, I know...the damn EPA and full framed, heavy cars are a thing of the past...but look at the behemouth trucks and SUVs out there!!! No, it wouldn't be a gas sipper and the person that is so ignorant to think it would be doesn't need to keep their eyes off of the Honda or Toyota.....GM should look into this suggestion and consider it carefully...either that or throw their arms up in exasperation and give up to the Japanese autos...lets bring back 'real' American automobiles again....why not??? There are already too many dually pickups and large SUVs carrying peoples lazy butts around and not serving their intended purpose!!!
