Hyundai and Nissan Still Offering Cash Back Rebates
Nearly every car maker has reduced incentives this month - and they know they can get away with it because demand is high while supply is limited.
Despite the circumstances, Hyundai and Nissan have continued offering cash back incentives this month.
Nissan is the only Japanese manufacturer offering these incentives, even while being affected by supply shortages.
Hyundai, on the other hand, has continued offering good incentives in an effort to chip away at their competitor's market share - and they're doing a damn fine job at it.
