Brian Eno OnStar Collaboration?

I was watching this OnStar commercial, the one with the the airbags and crash test dummies and detected some background music that sounded familiar,  something I used to listen to in college while studying.  Ambient music.  It sounds very much like Brian Eno.  Ambient Eno pitching OnStar?  Would he? Maybe OnStar will begin selling its system with the Complete Works of Eno. That’d be a deal that could get me back in a Chevy.

60 day $ back for GM – why not 60 weeks?

Chevy Camaro

I like Chevy’s.  I grew up with Chevys.  My parents bought Impalas in the 60’s and 70’s.  And in 78, my dad bought a Camaro, which became mine, and in 1981, my mom bought a 4 speed manual Chevy Vega.  The shifter was a little cranky and we had to practically stand up to get the clutch down, but I liked driving it.

Unfortunately, Chevy has gone downhill since the 80’s.  The only car in their lineup I would even consider buying today is a Malibu, but for the same price, I could drive home a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry.

So desperate is GM for new car sales, they are now offering a 60 day no questions asked money-back guarantee on new 2009 or 2010 cars.   If you don’t like your new car purchase within 60 days, bring it back for a full refund.

Here’s the problem.  60 days is not enough time for much to go wrong with a new car. If something were to go wrong, the car would be under warranty.  Instead of 60 days, GM should offer a 60 week guarantee.  Don’t like your car after a year or so, take it back for a full refund.   If you decide to keep it, get free routine maintenance for an additional year.  That would drum up sales… and probably sink the company.  What do I know?  I work for a non-profit.
