Avoid Costly Repairs

We were watching TV when a commercial came on for Doug Smith Dodge. Car dealerships must be pretty hard up for slogans or selling points. The new selling point that they have come up with is this...."Avoid costly repairs of your old truck, save $14,500 on a new one!" Are you kidding me? Avoid a costly repair and spend $35,000 instead on a new truck!? I wonder why they can't sell any cars.? It's okay, they could always get some more bailout money. I guess.
Korean Car Companies like Hyundai are offering specials like their "Assurance Program" that states if you buy a new car from them and you lose your job, you can bring your car back. Now this is desperate marketing people. Oh course they'd buy your car back at about half what you paid. Idiots.

I saw that Hyundai commercial {on our new TV that arrived today} tonight. Wow, it did seem desperate. Although, you're probably right. They'll buy it back for a ton less! Don't you love how the actions that caused all the problems were in currently just seem to keep happening? People don't seem to be learning from their mistakes.
