I'd guess GM is hoping to unload a bunch of built cars the month of April.

I watched the news conference live. GM said their payment protection plan was for 08, 09 and 2010 models.

They'll continue it if it spurs sales. It's just like rebates, say it's going to expire to push people to buy ASAP. Now more than ever.

Dude...if GM did 0% on all vehicles, they would sell SOOOOO many more vehicles. ...and I'd love'em for it! I need to save every penny that I can (like most of you all here).

Heck, if GM is selling the car and getting "x" amount of dollars, you might as well offer 0% financing and sell a few more cars cutting out the middle man. GM would still be making the same amount of money on each car sold. They would just be selling more.

Add this plan to the total confidence plan and you've got a great selling point. Why buy elsewhere? Now THAT is total confidence!!!

Whuh? That's a pretty large interest rate there.

I'll take what I can get now

(Psst, I know you pressed the 9 by accident)

The "GM Total Confidence" plan is available for vehicles purchased April 1 through April 30, 2009. For more information, please visit gmconfidence.com.
i may be wrong, but it doesn't say "take delivery by april 30". it just says purchased by. so it might still apply.

Details:

The Payment Protection Program is provided by cynoSure Financial, Inc.

So the car costs less in the US, they get way more cars first than Canada, dealers in the US have way more info than cdn dealers, and they get help paying for the car if they lose their job and trade in values are helped? And yet the car is made by Canadians and we get the big fat shaft? one hit after the other against Canadians here. no perks.

with regards to us never getting the same incentives. Happens all the time, not just with GM.

Ummm....We gave them taxes payer's money. They better start doing a little more for us!

Not exactly. It says April 1 thru April 30. All of us who ordered allready, ordered before the effective date. But I'll bet you my deposit that the effective date will be the date financing is obtained.
