vehicle, what's the maximum percent of the sticker you would be willing
to pay for a new Silverado or Colorado 4X4 truck?
Specifically: if you wanted to buy a Chevy truck with a sticker price of
$24,000 (plus 5% sales tax) what is the highest amount you would be
willing to pay on the road?
Any replies appreciated. I'll be interested to know what everyone thinks
is their idea of a good deal.

Sticker was $30,643. With the Chevrolet incentives, the dealer discount and
my add-ons, I paid $22,711.01 + T&T.
As I figure, that is 74% of list.
I have no idea what incentives and discounts there are now. I know that
dealer sells a huge volume.
