Default General Motors Offering Saturn Owners Special Incentives to Test Drive Cars, Trade Up

A new story entry has been added:

General Motors Offering Saturn Owners Special Incentives to Test Drive Cars, Trade Up to a New GM Vehicle

Quote:

Are you in the market for a new vehicle? If so, General Motors would really like you to take a look at their refreshed lineup of vehicles. As a result GM is inviting Saturn owners to "kick off the new year with a new vehicle that's every bit as impressive as your Saturn." The offer comes in the form of a loyalty rebate that takes an additonal $500 to $2000 off the "purchase or lease an eligible, new 2014 or remaining 2013 Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac" now through February 28th.

2006 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: General Motors Offering Saturn Owners Special Incentives to Test Drive Cars, Trad

Does this seem like a "Let's get some of those pesky Saturns off the road" kind of promotion to anyone else?

Do they think I'll trade in my reliable, fuel efficient ride for large gas guzzling SUV? I'd spend the 2K in 'savings' in fuel in the first year if I traded my Vue for one, let alone the L200!

2004 VUE Red Line
Default Re: General Motors Offering Saturn Owners Special Incentives to Test Drive Cars, Trad

Actually, I think it's rather a nice gesture. It helps make up for the resale hit that closing the brand gave us.

If you got a vehicle below invoice, with decent money for your car, and then they added another $2000 on top of that, it could be a nice deal for someone looking to trade up. People with the Outlook or Vue looking to trade up into a more modern vehicle could really benefit from this.

I'm pleasantly surprised by GM with this. I'm not going to go out and buy a new car from them, but I am pleased by this.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It doesn't say you have to trade the car...

From the link:

"Eligible customers must provide proof of current ownership or lease of a 1999 or newer Saturn car or truck. The offer may be transferred to an individual residing in the same household (same address) as the eligible recipient. The transferee must provide proof of address. Additional restrictions may apply."



When we got the Ascender Isuzu did the same thing, even though I hadn't owned my Isuzu truck for 6 or 7 years. The dealership had a record of having done a service on the truck, and we got an additional $500 off the vehicle. It's actually a shame that Isuzu could treat people better with a promotion than GM, considering it was a GM designed and built vehicle.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
