Woohoo! It's party time. Well, not for GM. Or Ford, really. Hell, all of Detroit isn't much up for partying. In fact, it's a pretty sad time. Crap. Jalopnik reports: Breaking! GM Returns To the Incentives Game: Announces Zero Percent Financing On Most Models. We mentioned this last week, but we figured we'd follow up that it actually happened. You can now buy almost every GM model with the no-interest loan. The only models excluded are the Corvette, Solstice, Pontiac G6 convertible, Hummer H1 and medium-duty trucks. The rest are good to go. What would we buy? Well, with no money down and a 72-month no-interest loan we'd have to say we'd probably drive right past the dealer and buy a Honda. Zing!
The few models we'd actually consider are being updated soon (Saab 9-3, Cadillac CTS*), so it doesn't make sense to buy the ones we've been making fun of. OK, if we have to pick, we'd consider the Buick Lucerne and Chevy Malibu Maxx. But that's it. We're never, ever buying a Monte Carlo. The Monte Carlo represents exactly what got GM into the pickle its in.
*We probably wouldn't ever buy a Cadillac, but we're going to continue to point out that GM turned Cadillac around and soon (2008) will have a real luxury interior in the CTS... so what are we saying? We think we're saying the 2007 Cadillac CTS will also have big incentives next year. Crap.
