Cadillac and Lincoln Offer Free Maintenance Programs
Summer time, and the maintenance is easy.
Thanks to Lincoln and Cadillac, both of which are offering free maintenance as a summer incentive.
Last week, Lincoln announced free scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 45,000 miles for all purchases between now and September 7. The program covers oil changes, tire rotation, inspections and wear-and-tear items like windshield wipers and brake linings.
Not to be outdone, Cadillac announced that it will begin a full-time free maintenance program for all 2011 models, covering all required maintenance for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first-including oil changes, tire rotations, air filters and multipoint inspections.
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.
