GM's inspired Chevy money-back guarantee
Other automakers will no doubt come up with similar programs.
Chevrolet sales rose 6% during the first half of the year, below the overall rate for the industry. They should have been stronger, especially since Chevrolet, which accounts for more than 73% of GM's sales, is making good cars. Consider what Edmunds.com said about the 2013 Malibu: "The fully redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu, . . . with its added refinement, feature content and efficiency, finally becomes a top-tier model." U.S. News and World Report called the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze the "Best Compact Car For The Money."
All of the automakers should adopt similar policies, with some sensible limits. Buying a car is a stressful experience. If a company can make the process a little easier on consumers, maybe those who are hesitant to incur thousands of dollars in debt -- on an asset that depreciates as soon as it leaves the dealer lot -- will be more inclined to make a purchase.
LOL... GM Chevy's reliable? Now that's funny! Of the 3 'domestic' car companies, Ii am sure GM comes in dead last, and any of the foreign/import name plates for my money, would be more reliable.
No one associates Chevy with reliable...
Yes you get your money back, but not your trade in. They will make money on it, and be sure to bring someone with you so you don't have to walk home.
GM should be thanking consumers for keeping them in buisness, instead of going back to there old way's of sticking it to people.
