    GM Begins Holiday Sales Event for all Brands: Red Tag Sale is Back



    Quote Originally Posted by Autoblog
    The holidays are coming and everything must go! So says GM's VP of sales Susan Docherty. "All of our efforts will be to sell down our remaining 2009 inventory." Docherty is expecting all the 2009 cars to be cleared out by January, 2010. The big sales, starting this week, each get their own names. Chevy is having a "Red Tag Sale," Buick-GMC are going with "Holiday Event" and tip of the top Caddy is using, "Seasons Best."

    As it happens, that's right about the time that Pontiac and Saturn are set to wander off into the sunset -- for good. As of right now, there's only about 10,000 Pontiacs and 8,000 Saturns left on dealer lots. "We're actually winding down those products quicker than we had anticipated," said Docherty. Curiously, there's no mention of what GM will be calling the Pontiac and Saturn sales, though "Get 'Em While They're On Fire!" has a certain ring to it.

    How about "Get 'em before they're gone forever!". I seriously considered getting a Solistice coupe a few weeks ago, but they didn't have any manuals left, so no deal.

    A sale and a blow out are 2 different things. GM Canada currently have $1000 "holiday bonus" cash, no different than Honda Canada.

    Re: REPORT: All GM Brands to Go on Sale This Week

    Every automaker has a holiday season "sales event" to clear remaining stock... The last few years GM hosted the Red Tag event throughout its brands... The economy is still bad and car companies are wasting no time getting the sales out there. While watching an NFL game yesterday, we were bombarded with "Hyundai Holidays" commercials...

    On another note, I saw a "Seasons Best" Cadillac commercial tonight. It was well done and very reminiscent of recent Lexus "December to Remember" Holiday spots. The commercial features the CTS, CTS Sport Wagon, and SRX which are all owned by different family members who are "racing" to their holiday dinner... Sibling rivalry, upper middle class style.

    Everyone from Honda to BMW is doing it just like last year and the year before and the year before that. No big deal.

    Everyone's got a sale on now on the 2009s. A half hour doesn't go by that I don't see at least one dealer pitching their wares be it GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, BMW, ...

    Im happy that they're not all running the same red tag promotion. Perhaps we can thank Susan for that.

    November is always Death Valley for car sales...most people are busy shopping for Xmas and with this turmoil still around most likely pinching pennies for gifts.
