Yesterday, we told you about the debut of General Motors' "Chevy Confidence" program, which offers Chevrolet shoppers no-haggle pricing and the opportunity to return their 2012 and 2013 model-year vehicles within 60 days of purchase.
Not to be outdone, Chrysler has announced a promotion of its own that allows new-car buyers to defer payments for up to 90 days after signing on the dotted line. Here are the major details:
1. The vehicle can be from any brand in the Chrysler family: Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, or Ram.
2. The vehicle has to be financed through Ally Financial.
3. The purchase has to be completed by August 31, 2012.
4. And the offer "may not be available" to shoppers in Maine, Pennsylvania, or Washington, D.C. (Contact your local dealer for details.)
It its press release touting the "No Payments for 90 Days" program, Chrysler also announced a couple of special deals -- namely, $3,000 in customer cash or 0% financing on the 2012 Chrysler 300C sedan, and $750 in trade-in bonus cash to folks who purchase a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country or a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan.
As you might expect, though, all of these deals -- including the deferred payments option -- are limited to "qualified customers". Call your dealer before you buy, just to ensure that you're in that number.
New-car shoppers: is this attractive to you? Is it enough to clinch the deal, or would you prefer an extended return policy like the one Chevy is offering? Drop us a line, or leave a note in the comments below.
