Surprise! GMAC Extends Free Money, Lowers Rates on CPO SUVs

surprise gmac extends free money lowers rates on cpo suvs

Is anyone surprised? Automotive News [sub] reports that GM is extending the 0% financing for everyone deal through July 7. The conditions are the same: 0 percent financing on most vehicles if you're able to make it through a dealership's door under your own power. Dealers who have increased floor traffic are happy because they're even selling SUVs and full-sized pickups. GM spokesman Pete Ternes said they'll "heavily advertise and promote the sale, especially over the July 4th weekend." With the problems GMAC is already having, giving away money for the next six years can't help their situation. And practically giving away the inventory can't be making GM much money, either. Hole. Digging. Stop. Meanwhile, GMAC is launching a "rate incentive program" on select GM Certified Used Vehicles, including the Chevrolet Impala and Malibu, but especially SUVs. "Well-qualified customers also can receive GMAC 4.9% APR financing for terms up to 60 months on 2003-2008 models of Chevrolet Trailblazer, Tahoe and Suburban; GMC Envoy, Yukon and Yukon XL; Pontiac G6; and Buick Lacrosse vehicles at participating GM Certified Used Vehicles dealers." Yeah, that'll work.

    You'll still be better off waiting for the going-out-of-business sale. The residuals already suck and the price can only go down.

    Its only zero % if you waive the vehicle rebates (ie finance your interest up front). Its not zero percent unless you can keep all the rebates and discounts. Its not rocket science.

    GM should retrofit their moribund CPO SUV's with the hybrid drivetrain; that'll move em!
