I'm always surprised that we have relatively "low" (a very relative term) inflation since the late '70s/early '80s. We have most certainly "inflated" the currency. Why it hasn't translated into "run away" inflation always puzzles (but, so far pleases me.) YMMV
I apologize, my mistake, the purchase price was $5,200 while MSRP was $7,500.
