We have the GM extended warranty and we've been taken very good care of,
just had a condenser replaced and we didn't have to pay a penny. They've
also replaced the CD player and have gone out of their way to even take care
of things that aren't covered, believe it or not.

A coworker of mine just moved her family to New Brunswick and they're going
to start over. I'm not that adventurous ;-)

Air conditioning ? I'm still shivering from this morning, as the wife likes
to have the windows open. Brr.

have fun
