GM Offers Free Oil Changes for Pontiac and Saturn Owners
With GM discontinuing its Pontiac and Saturn brands, there are now 1.6 million owners who won't be able to buy the same make next time they're shopping for a car.
GM wants them to consider buying one of their remaining brands so now they're offering free oil changes to all Pontiac and Saturn owners who bring in their cars to a Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC dealer.
The details of the plan have not been made public yet so we don't know if this is good for only one oil change or lifetime oil changes. Whatever the case, this is a welcome incentive for anyone considering buying one of these models.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, 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.
