2009 Chevrolet Uplander mini-van $14,998 cash - HOT

Saw in the Toronto Star today, GM is advertising the Uplander at a new cash price of $14,998.

Includes:

3.9L 240hp V6
Full traction control
StabiliTrak stability control
4-wheel disc brakes with ABS
Power windows/ locks/ mirrors
Keyless entry
Air conditioning
CD stereo
On Star Communications
7 passenger seating
5 year power train warranty, roadside assist and courtesy transportation

Mileage 8.5L/100km highway or 33 MPG. 13.1L/100 city or 22 MPG.

It says "Limited Time Offer"... for whatever it's worth.

Pretty hot deal for a basic van!! My wife has one for her business and it's been great, zero problems so far.

Won't happen, U.S. government won't let it.

That said, even if it did the warranty would be valid as bankruptcy just affects creditors, not customers.

Geeez, even at 9,995$ people would mention the warranty factor. You can put the whole family and more in a new 2009 car for only 15000$.
Great deal if you ask me.

I heard a news story (The National) the other night about GM going bankrupt and would owners warranty still be valid if they filed. I was surprised to find out the warranty is handled by an insurance policy and that all owners would still be covered.

I would do more research prior to buying to get the details though.

A warranty is only as good as the ability to take advantage of it. If to many GM dealerships close, you could be looking at traveling a very long way to a dealership who is at overcapacity since there is no where else to go.

Most dealerships are profitable, they make all their money in the back at the garage.

You can speculate on the doom gloom scenario but GM is not going away and most dealers will survive.

Remember: Freight/PDI, Admission Fee, Gas Tax, and PPSA (unless vehicle has to be paid in full prior to delivery). Not to mention PST and GST (no PST if the deal is available in Alberta.)


How much would this deal be then :?:

Is it possible for a GM and Chrysler merge? Will the US Government allow this to happen?

You have to remember that these advertised prices never include all the additional fees and taxes, such as freight & PDI, admin fee, AC tax, silly charges like VIN etching and locking wheel nuts and nitrogen gas tires, registration fees and of course GST+PST.

Just keep in mind that your on-the-road price is likely going be at least $19,000.

We were charged tax, $1250 freight, $100 air tax, $75 federal gas tax, and our admin fee of $350 (included etching). That's it.

So ya.. $19K max but any new car has these charges.

It'll be the same deal, as these fees apply to EVERY new car.
