    The spread of COVID-19 has very quickly disrupted daily life and General Motors is looking to cushion the blow, both for current owners and prospective buyers. The automaker has rolled out zero-interest loans for up to 84 months for customers in top credit tiers. GM said it will also work with current owners feeling financial effects of the pandemic, and one of the options will be delaying payments, a GM spokesperson told C/D. The program covers all GM brands.

    For prospective buyers, the first payment on a new loan can be deferred for up to 120 days. GM will also work with dealers to get them to utilize the automaker's online car purchasing tool, which will allow customers to buy and take delivery of a vehicle at home. For current owners, GM is making several subscription-based services available including in-car Wi-Fi—up to three gigabytes—as well as OnStar Crisis Assist, a service that connects drivers to first responders.

    Famous GM Marketing Tagline from Mid-September, 2001: "Keep America Moving."

    How true. Stay safe everyone!


    Autoweek: 09-03-2002

    Two days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, General Motors executives Roger Adams and Paul Ballew were leaving a meeting when Adams grabbed Ballew's arm.
    "We've gotta do this," Adams told Ballew. "We've gotta do this."

    Adams, Buick's boss, was pressing Ballew for an aggressive incentives campaign called "Let's Get America Moving." Ballew, a former Federal Reserve economist, crunches the numbers for GM's incentive programs.

    GM was under enormous pressure in the wake of the attacks on New York and the Pentagon. Auto sales screeched to a halt as the American public tried to fathom the tragedy.

    GM was the world's largest automaker, and actions would set the tone for the industry - and much of the United States' economy.

    But could GM - overly cautious and bureaucratic - lead?

    In an intense 10-day stretch, GM created an incentive program with a title much like the one Adams suggested: "Keep America Rolling." Its centerpiece, 0 percent auto loans, connected instantly with the public's need for confidence in the future. And it stimulated auto sales to an astonishing degree.

    Industry light-vehicle sales shot up. GM estimates that the program added about 1 million total U.S. sales by year end.

    Thanks for posting. S**t really going to start hitting the fan. Recession will be brutal to auto sales, looks like they are trying to get ahead of it to some extent.

    Hopefully if there is enough temporary relief from mortgages and car loans it can help keep the economy from going into a tailspin if this goes on to long.

    I think we'll rebound as quickly as we fell off the cliff on this media fueled nonsense (unless your over 70 years old, then shelter in place). So my prediction is this will be short lived, the consequences from years of cheap money, now that is going to be ugly. This is a teaser for when the plug decides to cut off the drug supply (cheap cash). There will be some real buying opportunities so now would be a good time to have saved a $100k + in cash.

    The US dollar will be worthless after this is all done. Stock market will be finished, get ready for a one world currency! If you have cash spend it now......

    Just my predictions. This is not going away anytime soon sadly.

    I like it...it says "Hey I know it's a pandemic and all, the market is taking a dump, and you have to homeschool your kid while simultaneously working from home, but hey now is a great time to buy a new car! We can handle all of the paperwork for you, screw you over on your trade and we'll even come to your home wearing rubber gloves to deliver your new car and to pickup our new moneymaker that we're going to turn around and sell for 20% more than what we gave you for it" sound about right?

    Get back to me when you sweeten the deal with 20% off MSRP. I'll pull the trigger.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    That's not what the Wheelers are thinking, Gold is taking a Hit also. If you have Cash, turn it into Toilet Paper, seems to be the only thing Sky Rocketing

    I couldn't have said it better. Especially the "screw you over your trade part".

    I would not argue it is bad and going to get worse. But somehow when I compare this to things either at the very beginnings of my lifetime or prior to, it is just bad. I mean would you say this is worse than polio?, WWII?, Spanish flu?, WWI, black plague? And yet somehow humanity survived. And in everything except black plague, which the US did not exist, the US came out ok.

    if your trade is a HIGH percentage of the NEW car then yes you will still get the "hose treatment"
    but if your trade is a LOW percentage and you're financing you will likely make out like bandits with BOTH super low rate financing AND BIG discounts once the economic toll kicks in
    I wish the Branco was going on sale THIS summer but maybe a Gladiator Diesel is in the cards (-:
