I am the proud new owner of an Av - picked it up a week ago yesterday. I've been lusting for one for some time and so far the reality is even better than the dream.
I agree this site is great - very helpful to consumed types like me. I certainly appreciate the time and shared experience from the folks who developed and maintain it.
By the way, anal type that I am, I researched and shopped around extensively before buying my AV 350 miles from my home at Kevin Whitaker Chevrolet-Cadillac in Greenville, SC. They jumped through hoops to get me just the options and trim I wanted and let me have it for invoice less the rebate. They did not charge me to pick it up from the dealer where they found it and did not tag on any after the negotiation "oh, by the way" fees that dealers love so much (their processing fee was $59 - fair enough). Ask for Mark Becker, their internet sales manager. And no, I never knew of him or the dealeaship before I contacted them. They are straight shooters.
Thanks again to all who keep this site going. You definitely add to the Av experience.
