General Motors has expanded low 3.9-percent financing on Certified Used models to include the Chevrolet Malibu.
In February and March, GM was offering the deal on 2005-2010 Pontiac G6 models; now 2005-2010 Chevrolet Malibu models are also covered. The 3.9-percent APR financing applies for a term of 60 months.
The Malibu has maintained a solid reputation now for many years, though the current, larger version that made its debut for 2008 is a big step ahead in roominess and refinement. You'll find a summary of all the changes in our model page on the Malibu.
Certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles already make a lot of sense. You get a late-model used car—and in general, a lot more car than you would be able to afford new—that's been meticulously inspected and given a warranty that's comparable to that of a new car.
To qualify for GM's Certified Used program, vehicles must be six years old or newer and have 75,000 miles or less. Although they tend to go by different names depending on the automaker, CPO programs typically offer a full vehicle inspection, covering many very specific inspection points that might typically be glossed over with a typical used car at the dealership. Many of these programs provide new brake pads, for instance, even if they're only somewhat worn.
GM Certified Used vehicles come with a fully transferable 100,000-mile/five-year powertrain warranty, 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage, 24-hour roadside assistance, and three months of OnStar and XM Satellite Radio. A free vehicle history report is included, and a three-day/150-mile customer satisfaction guarantee applies.
The offer runs through June 1, 2010.
