    You can't afford an Escalade unless you are a low to medium level drug dealer.

    High level dealers all drive Lamborgini's...

    This is my sticker shock. $420,000 for a four gun set. Even if they throw in the girl it's too much $$$$

    I looked at a Nissan GT-R at a dealer last month. The sticker on it was $91,000. The salesman said it was their second one. He said the first one was sold before they got it. Its 530 HP but i just can't see anyone paying that for a rice rocket. To each his own i guess.

    Recently leased my wife a new car. As we were in the GM dealer I walked over to one of the buicks on the showroom floor. The sticker was over 40k. My wife and I looked at each other and both shook our heads. Being 33 and my wife 30 we have never known a time when GM truly produced a well made and desirable car. My father has told me about GM's wonderfull past but I have only seen mediocraty during my life time. Add to this the facts that they just went bankrupt and Toyotas and Hondas run forever. Well, it just did not compute with me. My wife who knows nothing of cars, looked at me and said" 40+k for an ugly Buick!?! They have some nerve. Do they think it's a BMW?". Found myself at a Toyota dealer very shortly there after.

    Want sticker shock? Get sick and go to a hospital and have lots of tests done.

    With all the millions they stole from faithful GM bondholders with legal claims on assets, you wouldn't think they'd be trying to f#ck people on price like that.

    On second thought... any sucker who still buys GM deserves what they get.

    Does anyone even go off pavement in an Escalade?

    blkcloud, Obama get's 25%... It is "Government Motors" after all... I looked at GM dashboards for 20+ years... Blazer, Suburban's and then Denali's... Couldn't do it this time. X5 from the good people building BMW's at Spartanburg, SC. Haven't looked back... but if I did, all domestic SUV's would be in my rear view mirror... except possibly for the Jeep SRT8 (which I owned for 2 weeks), but I'd pass them at the gas station!
