Is there any down side to buying a 2006 leftover vehicle?

With gas prices continuing to climb, I figure now is as good a time as any to get rid of my 10 year old gas guzzling SUV for something that is more economical at the pumps.
Normally I buy used, but it seems that there are some great warranties and incentives on new domestic cars right now. i was looking at '07 leftovers since there are some pretty aggressive deals to be had, stumbled accross a lot that still has a brand new '06 that they are willing to sell for about $11,000 below sticker. (Sticker is $38k)
I can't think of any downside to buying a 2006, except maybe that the fluids may all need to be replaced due to it sitting so long.
Have any of you ever bought a new veichle that was two or more years old? did you have problems? Is there a downside to doing this?
