Not sure how old the OP is but as someone in their mid-40's I have very little nostalgia for GM products of this era. The interiors were just fucking terrible.

The Lexus grill has gotten better over time I think.
He’s still alive, you moron.
They have religious or medical reasons not to return their carts.
