Default Re: outlook prices announced

In fact, he (the dealer) didn't even know that the prices had been announced in the U.S. I suppose there may be some reluctance by Saturn Canada to announce prices because they know we (potential Canadian buyers) are now looking at the U.S. prices and they don't want us to suffer cardiac arrest when we finally see the Canadian prices. As we all know in Canada, the base price is going to be at least 2-3 K more than it is in the U.S. and it only goes up from there. As I said yea these many weeks ago, an all up XR is going to go for over 50K in Canada. Too bad we are not allowed to by our cars in the U.S. Oh we can buy them in the U.S. but no Canadain dealer will honour the warranty. Gotcha.
More GM bureaucracy.....isn't that convenent! The car is built the U.S. and is sold in both Canada and the US yet they can't have the same warranty? I can assure you it has everything to do with cross-border shopping and fleecing Canadian buyers. All I can say is if the Canadian Outlook is pricing above the 12% present currency exchange, count me out. So long as buyers tolerate it, GM will tack on the present 30% exchange differential. I'll look elsewhere thanks.
