From September 1, 2003 through June 30, 2004, GLI spent 6 million dollars on Bus Parts alone. 

Why so much ?
1.  Part Swapping is the most popular means of troubleshooting.
2. Drivers have a tendency to hit every sign, parking stop, or other bus within ten feet.
3. G's are Junk.  Imagine if so many weren't under warranty during that time span.
