Been looking for about 2 months. I was driving a 98 S-10 4x4 pickup and it had a lot of little things wrong with it. Had 155K miles and would have taken about $2K or more to put it in good shape and yet the third door was showing a little rust at the bottom. I was determined to get exactly what I wanted if I was going to spend $30K. Last Friday found one at a local dealer while surfing the web. Thought I would look at it since it was in the color I wanted and had the exact options I was looking for. Didn't plan to buy just look. Thought I would order a 2012 in August and use the next several months to save more for the downpayment. Anyway the dealer offered me $1K more for my truck then I thought I would get. He said since it was a 4x4 and it was in good shape. Made me re-evaluate my thinking. Called the saleman yesterday and told him the price I needed to put it on the road with my trade for me to be comfortable. Got the "your are really beating us down" but we'll do it. This thing has more bells and whistles then my 93 vette and Harley geezer glide combined, but I know I'm going to like it.

Congratulations! Nice colour combination.

And ANOTHER Corvette owner!??! It seems like the majority of Terrain owners on this board are also Corvette enthusiasts. Wonder why that is.

Maybe Corvettes are quite common in the US or maybe it's an age thing. We do seem to have a lot of retirees on this board. Personally I only know one person that owns one and it's from the 70s. My neighbours obviously aren't working hard enough to impress the rest of us!

Congrats....

I ordered mine about 5 weeks ago. Sales dude called this week to say it was built and he had a VIN # for me. Hopefully it will arrive in a week or so. Went all out on a v6 except for the rear intertainment. Gold.

Now if I can only figure out what to do about replacing the 18" wheels. The only thing I have a problem with.

Good luck with yours. ;D ;D

When I bought my vette used 12 years ago people told me I had a mid-life crisis. I said no, the kids are finally gone and I can afford one. Bought a new Harley when I turned 63. Got to believe some toys help you stay young.

KrisKaos, my first new car too. Driven a lot of new company cars over the years. Bought two new motorcycles and two new boats, but this is the first new car. Figure this one should last me well into retirement.

By the way..... the sales guy tells me mine was made in Canada. I'm thinking, whats wrong with this picture. Here we "donate" our tax dollars to bail them out and now I'm feeling all goo-goo gaa-gaa knowing thinking I'm contribiting to some poor American worker somewhere only to find that my American car is built in Canada. :mad:

Boo hoo for you. Should have bought an Acadia then.

I think of it as being built in North America with North American parts. Unlike my sister's Sorrento that was assembled in Georgia but with parts marked "Made in Korea".
