Infiniti blasted emails saying you can buy an Infiniti for employee pricing if you were affected by Sandy. Is that tasteless, or what?

Why don't they donate some G3x's to the Red Cross instead? If the retail price totaled 1 mil., it would cost them far less than that. Or instead of G3x's, the largest suv's they make so they can do some good.

I just heard of a local business donating 9 truckloads of food to the cause. 9 truckloads is not nothing....
What you guys must understand also is how much these companies have lost also, example: dealerships by me, lost their ENTIRE inventory (lots and garages wen't underwater) new cars, used cars, lease returns, pretty much everything. HUGE blow.. but still

I was actually looking up stats to make your claim wrong.. but it actually supports your argument.. BMW mad 4.X Billion dollars in profit in 2011 while Nissan (Infiniti Parent Company) made 319.X billion dollars in profit... but to each their own..
