I sorta agree with you. On the refinement, you're right on. But I don't think that should have too much of an effect on pricing. Looking at used prices, and comparing them to new prices, there's too much of a difference. The interior is decent, but it's merely ok at best. You get zero leather and there's not always a sunroof. Also, the depreciation in price is tremendous, where you'll find three year old gts' on sale with decent mileage for half price of a new one.
