Does anyone know whether you get an insurance break with Onstar? If so, how much?
I was watching the news just last week when a police officer being interviewed commented how nice it was that the vehicle which had been stolen had Onstar - catching the crook was a no-brainer. I had just dismissed the idea of ordering the package with Onstar, but am reconsidering now, especially if a chunk of the cost can be recouped in insurance savings.
03's have been in my area for a while now - but no 2500's anywhere, 02's or 03's. I'd really like to see one. I check one of the local lots every night on my way home from work. They think I'm insane.
If anyone has pictures of an 03 Victory Red (1500 or 2500), please post or give me the link (sorry - I've tried searching but I can't seem to use that function very efficiently). I do have a few pics of the Z66 and of the red 03 (taken at the lot with the SOM).
I was going to order an 03 for delivery in mid-December but the salesguy wouldn't (or couldn't) give me a straight answer as to what financing/lease rate would apply (assuming that they vary between ordering and delivery). I decided to take my chances in December and see what's available then, given the motivation of most dealers to sell in volume to hit year end sales incentives, or so I've been told (I've always had good luck in mid-December). The problem is that in my area, there are no 2500's anywhere, which is what I want. Hopefully things will change by x-mas. It's too late to order now anyway.
I noticed the Canadian site up as well. When are they going to acknowledge gray as an available colour? And why is it that the U.S. site is about a trillion times nicer (eg. colours)? I know that you can now price an Av in Cdn dollars which is handy for us northerners, but I had a complete printout of the 03 pricing August 16 (including every option) - anyone could have got this by calling any dealer.
Also, the "offers" link at the Canadian site hasn't provided any info for a while now. I used to be able to track all the 03's (and 02's) available in my area using this function. It hasn't worked for a while - it says the info is being updated.
It's great having a Canadian site, but I think it's a little shoddy, quite frankly. I wonder if GM realizes how many people research online these days (I'm sure they must know that).
Please forgive the wandering message. My enthisiasm at this site always gets the better of me.
