I sent the dealer an email on this one... I doubt they will honor it though...

Legally and reasonably they don't have to (even if there's not a disclaimer). If gas had stayed at $4/gallon you might have a chance that they'd do it for the publicity.

Yeah, even though I have purchased my current truck from them, its a small town dealer, not likely to eat the cost of a truck for publicity.

Well, while on their site, I saw another truck I just love. Oh, if only I had an extra $20,000 just lying around...

Thoe Denalis seem really nice. Too bad you can't get Quadrasteer anymore (since MY2005 or so).

They don't make that anymore? Either there wasn't much demand for it, or it was problematic so they dropped it.

According to reports from owners, it's pretty much trouble-free. I think people just weren't willing to pay the $5000 (IIRC) for it. If I could have afforded it, I definitely would have it, I'd love it.
