Suzuki Offers Free Gas After Sales Plummet 78%
Suzuki had the worst US sales of any manufacturer last month, posting a 78% drop compared to the year ago period.
So what do they offer to increase sales? A measly $300 in free gas if you buy the Suzuki SX4 compact car.
They're promoting it as free gas for the summer (3 months' worth). It's not a bad deal if you buy the SX4 Manual Transmission, which comes with $2,000 cash back.
With Suzuki posting the worst sales, you would think they would offer something better, especially since the competition is offering lots of incentives.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
