Default Arrogant thieves at GM

Arrogant thieves at GM

They think people should tattoo their name on their arms like they do with Harley.

Bad guy GM Canada. Quote me $1640.00 + tax for 1 auto locking hub and $449.00 for 1 brake drum on my 1997 Tracker 4 door.

Good guys. Suzuki Dealer in Detroit MI. Quoted me $330.00 US for the hub.
I bought the brake drums in Canada for$31.99 ea. They also charged me $250.00 for a vehicle recall clearance letter.

Any wonder why the big 3 are in so much trouble, and people don't want to deal with them any more.

Replacement Warn (manual) hubs are $49 each at Lordco, $140 at GM. Front rotor discs are $39 at Lordco, $150 at GM. Door lock cylinders are $105 at GM, $65 at Suzuki. It pays to shop around.

Angry

Interesting comment but it contains no validity.
You gave the price for parts at a gm dealer in canada, but you did not give a price for a suzuki dealer in canada.
Then you gave a price for a gm dealer in the united states, but did not give a price for a suzuki dealer in the united states.
Since you left out ( purposely or otherwise ) this prevents the ascertation of a valid argument because there is no comparative evidence to weigh against that which is otherwise obvious.
Without such data, this invalidates your ascertations.

Hardly
I was making a point about GM in general and then a comparison of GM Canada and GM USA.
Try to keep up now.
The Suzuki dealer in Ontario quotes $679.00 for the same part
That was about the equivalent of the US GM dealer, while the US Suzuki dealer quoted me about half that amount.
I cannot believe anyone would waste their time defending these arrogant thieving holes, unless they themselves were one on them.

I work for a GM dealer in their parts department. We have no control over the prices GM sets. Remember we are owned by the government now[remember those $400 hammers], it is hard to tell customers that a single bolt sells for $10 a piece when you can go to the hardware store and get 10 lbs of the same bolt! I also work part time at an Advance Auto Parts so I see the price difference all the time. I tell people to search the internet for hard to find parts. They are out there for a reasonable price but you have to hunt for them and be patient!

The prices are likely the result of bankruptcy. The US Govt is now the owner of GM. Fortunately the overseas makers of Trackers (India, etc) are still running on 4 cylinders and you can get Indian parts through jobbers. For a real shocker, check the price of a '98 Tracker ECM which used to be $700. After the gov took over they're now $3000 (none left at Suzuki)!

Default What a deal

How does an $18000. Chevy S box end up costing around $25,000.00 but in the same time period it is now only worth $9,000.

Then you add in the outrageous prices they charge for their parts and why in the " hell " would you ever buy a car from these accountants.

Used cars rule. go to hell GM
