Then I stand corrected! I now see that there is not an actual law, and
I am not going to try to defend it since it obviously doesn't exist. I
wasn't trying to pedal crap, I honestly believed that the law existed.
I was not put under the impression by a salesman. I know better than
to believe a salesman. I was put under the impression by the owner of
the dealership, who was a friend's brother. My friend is an honest
person, so I extended the belief of honesty to his brother. Oops. I
guess in reality he is the head salesman, but I would hold him a
little more accountable, thus hope more honest. As Edward Ohare stated
on here a few hours ago, he believes that GM did promise parts for the
oldsmobile. So apparently around the time that Olds was dissolving,
they were making some promises, which I can see how the owner may have
embelished by adding some legal claims to it.
I really don't want to argue about this any more. I've already said
that I was mistaken twice. If this is really supposed to be a forum
about helping people, why don't we get to that...
As I stated in my first posting, freightliner also sells the Sprinter.
I am not sure if that is gong to change after DC divorces, but I think
it would be a viable idea to check with a freightliner dealer to see
what they have as far as plans for parts. Even though the Sprinter
hasn't been a huge success on a small business or personal use level,
both UPS and DHL use them. Even though it is possible that these large
companies might have their own supliers, I would imagine that if one
tried hard enough, they could find a supplier for the parts well into
the future. Car companies stop making models all the time, and
continue to have parts for them.
I really don't think that finding parts is something worth worrying
about. If it does become a problem, I would imagine that some little
company would pop up to feed the market created by the shortage-
importing parts from Europe where Sprinters abound. It's the American
Have a good day,
