GM Finally Leasing Cars Again
Last year, GM terminated its leasing program due to the credit crunch. This had cost them dearly since 17% of their sales had historically gone to leasing.
Now GM will be testing the waters again by introducing lease programs through the end of August in five states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Michigan, and Ohio.
The only cars available for leasing are:
- 2009 Cadillac CTS
- 2009 Chevrolet Malibu
- 2009 Chevrolet Traverse
- 2010 Cadillac SRX*
- 2010 Buick LaCrosse
- 2010 Buick Enclave
- 2010 GMC Acadia
- 2010 Chevrolet Equinox
Depending on how this leasing program goes, GM may decide to take it nationwide next month.
