The lemon law is supposed to give you all your money back from the Blazer minus a usage fee called the Song Beverly Act. GM told me they wouldn't charge me a usage fee and give me a full refund including tax, license, registration, etc OR allow me to shop at the GM "Wholesale Store" which basically is build a vehicle and they would cover tax, license, registration, etc. If I choose another Blazer, chances are I would get back some cash with a new blazer. I didn't want a front wheel drive again, so I built a Tahoe. It took a while to get an out of pocket cost. The Tahoe was built and delivered to the host dealership by the time I got my "Offer". They didn't give me a breakdown of the offer. They just said $19.6K Non Negotiable and I had 5 days to accept. My Blazer was $43.5K out the door, so the Tahoe would be out of my pocket $63K out the door. I accepted the offer. When I signed the contract, I finally saw the breakdown and they only gave me $41K for the Blazer which means they did deduct a usage fee, so the out the door cost for the Tahoe would be closer to $61K. I think I got it for about 5K less and that doesn't include a potential dealer market-demand mark-up of 5K on the 5.3L and 10K on the 6.2L. So far, I'm happy with the deal I got. I just am leery about the 10 Speed tranny. I bought an extended warranty for 3K. Since I don't drive much, I got the 15 year or 75K Miles bumper to bumper. So, if the tranny breaks, they cover it.How much did you pay for the vehicle?
