    the bailout was actually a bankruptcy so the dealer contracts were nullified (basically)
    corporate does have more power than before so wouldn't be surprised if they could

    here's some good info about the new dealer agreement (and the one that almost was)

    I do know that if asked by the upper management at the car dealer Cadillac will get involved and as the general manager told me at my dealership they generally do offer to help out in paying the difference for a new car, I believe they split it with the dealer. Although in this case I don't know because there was real negligence on the dealers part so the dealer may be responsible for 100 percent of this claim. Probably the dealer is hesitant to get Cadillac involved because they know they really screwed up and don't want to look bad to GM.

    My dealer repainted my black coupe four times because of what they did on their sealant and buff job. First they burned the clear coat, then they burnt some edges, then they clipped off a bunch of pock marks in the orange peal, then they holographed the clear coat. It was a mess, but finally got it right. Four months and only 1000 miles on the car in that time because of how much it spent at the paint shop.

    WOW, That's the reason no one but me details my car. I've owned 9 Vette's and all have been hand detailed by me using ZAINO products.

    I feel sorry for you and wish you luck in getting restitution.
