Chevy No-Haggle Pricing and Money Back Guarantee Aim to Give Buyers Confidence
Been thinking about buying a new Chevy? The good news is that you’ve got another reason to consider one, now that Chevrolet has announced its new Chevy Confidence program, which began today, July 10.
Highlights of the program include a money-back guarantee on all 2012 and 2013 models. If you don’t like your new Chevy, return it for a refund, as long as it’s not damaged, has less than 4,000 miles on it, and you’ve owned it for at least 30 days but not more than 60 days. Additionally, all 2012 Chevy models get “Total Confidence Pricing,” a clearly-marked, no-haggle price against which additional rebates and incentives can be applied to further lower the cost of the vehicle.
The program runs through September 4, 2012, and you can read all of the fine print on Chevy’s website.
WHAT CHEVY MODELS ARE WORTHY OF CONSIDERATION?
Unfortunately, Chevrolet doesn’t sell very many models that are designed for Speedy Daddies. The Camaro seats four people, but isn’t really a family car. Plus, kids hate riding in its claustrophobic rear seat. The Sonic Turbo definitely qualifies, and maybe the Silverado Z71 Crew Cab, but otherwise, the Chevy lineup lacks family-friendly vehicles that are fun to drive on, or off, the pavement. And while we certainly wouldn’t steer anyone clear of the outgoing 2012 Malibu, which still looks good and drives decently, it’s nobody’s first choice for a thrilling driving experience. Besides, a whole bunch of Malibus are going to hit the Certified Pre-Owned lots in the next year or so, because GM has been dumping these into rental car fleets all over the country.
SPEEDY DADDY SAYS…
The Chevy Confidence program is appealing, especially for consumers who want a quick, easy buying experience with the option of returning the car if they decide they don’t like it. Too bad there are so few entertaining Chevrolet models from which to choose. Aside from the Corvette and Camaro, of course.
