i am with you on this one!
i am still shopping (little delay for my purchase ) and the service I am getting in person or by email is important!
for example, i am still waiting for 2 reply to my email asking for a new car coming out next month..so 2 dealers, selling the same brand are not giving a very good impression so far..makes me wonder...
as for the scion/toyota/chevy dealer, he keeps in touch with me, in a very polite, non pushy manner, obviously, i know he wants my business and that is ok with me. there is a fine line between being pushy and business oriented and he is doing just the right thing.

I think the sales experience does reflect your potential service experience, definitely!!!
#26 of 50 Buying American Propoganda

Give it a rest. Making decisions about products being built in America is like refusing to shop at Wal-Mart, Target or any department store for that matter. Read the stats, the percentage of 100% American made products is insignificant enough to stop stressing those of us who don't care. Do you watch food labels for nitrite? Further, if you are so concerned about buying American...don't buy gas for your car. Where do you think the oil/gas comes from people?

Buying a 2006 or 2007 Aveo doesn't support an American company at all. The AVEO is a GMDAT product produced in Korea and sold in over 140 countries around the world. GM is a world-wide automotive company with PACAT (GM China), Holden (GM Australia), Opel/Vauxhall (GM of Europe) all involved in the development of the new '07 Aveo. GM USA was not part of the redesign of the new Aveo sedan.

"Buying a 2006 or 2007 Aveo doesn't support an American company at all."
How do you figure that. GM is an American company and they own the majority of Daewoo. So any Aveo sold is more money for them. Any Aveo sold in the U.S. makes GM and the dealer more $$$. Why would they sell it if there wasn't going to be a profit?

GM is not an American owned company - it's an international company with brands Holden, Daewoo, Opel, Vauxhall GMDAT, PACAT and others. Profit will go back to all of GM not just GM of USA with the majority of the profits going back to GMDAT in Korea and PACAT in China.

GM not an American company? Are you new to the automotive world? They are and have always been based in Detroit Michigan. Just because they have other divisions throughout the world and do business internationally doesn't change their nationality. One of their brands is Saab which is and was founded in Sweden. They are still a Swedish company though they share components with other divisions in other companies, countries. Toyota is a Japanese company and have always been based in Japan though they now build elsewhere and share parts with other companies. The name Toyota is Japanese just like Nissan, Mitsubishi, etc.

here in az it was 116 today
I own an 2007 aveo and my friend owns a 06 xA and we went to the movies. when we got out of the 2 hr movie.
my aveo always takes about 5 minutes in the summer to cool down even when it has been sitting outside all day during school.
his xA took and i'm NOT joking 15 minutes to get cool enough to drive that is appalling

"his xA took and i'm NOT joking 15 minutes to get cool enough to drive that is appalling."
It sounds like your friend should visit his local dealership to have it checked out. That would not be acceptible to me either.
