If one can believe the gushing review on thecarconnection.com this could
be the best new vehicle introduction from GM in many, many years.
Now if GM can figure out how to hit the ball out of the park with all of
it's models then perhaps there is some real hope.
Right now most of GM's lineup is merely competitive. The new Tahoe
looks like it will be a real contender for best-in-class.
And if history repeats itself, it will depreciate much faster than a Toyota
But all kidding aside, I really do hope GM starts to take engineering and
build quality issues seriously, I miss my Suburban, but not the repair

I personally don't care if a vehicle depreciates. I'll take the car,
truck, or van that lasts the longest. I put my money (my wife has
other ideas) on American made Iron.
Those who are worried about depreciation shouldn't be buying the
vehicle in the first place. Ever wonder why vehicles lose value so
quickly, may be that they aren't worth the cost to begin with.
Nor do I. I keep cars 8-12 years. The value of most are in the crapper
by that time. The only exception was a 1987 Caravan I once had. I
bought it new for ~$12K late in 1986 and sold it for $4K in early 1997.
A 8K depreciation in a little over 10 years wasn't bad! We put very few
$$$ into it in repairs. The people we sold it to drove it another 4
years! Got lucky on that one.
