Want an easy way to earn £500? Buy a new Vauxhall this weekend: it’s giving a monkey to everyone buying a new car between 13-16 September.
Why the generosity? Because it’s Vauxhall’s 110th year, says the firm. “Our retailers are hosting this event to mark this special occasion,” said Vauxhall chairman and MD Duncan Aldred.
That’s not the only reason though, surely. At the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Aldred told us Vauxhall wants to not only be Britain’s oldest surviving car manufacturer, but also its biggest: by 2016, he is aiming to have toppled Ford.
As September is a key sales month, what better way to incentivise sales than with the promise of an easy £500?
It won’t even affect other incentives, meaning 0 per cent APR remains available, as does a Vauxhall deposit contribution of up to £2000. It’s willing to give even more money to if you buy one of its cars.
MR says: Bargain-hunters may not immediately think of buying a Vauxhall, but with this weekend’s Vauxhall 110-Year £500 cash boost, plus the ongoing Lifetime Warranty, it could certainly be worth getting that Vauxhall monkey off your back.
