    New Car Buyers...great buying times now

    Factory incentives are huge. Just got rid of the wife's Grand Am, traded in for a nice little sport ute. She had an insane car loan on the Grand Am with Wells Fargo, I hated it, insane interest rate that prevented ever having equity in the car (depreciated faster than could drop principle). Dealer allowed taking that huge balance onto purchase of a new one...and apply the rebate towards down payment, drove off the lot in her new toy with no money down.

    The insurance rate dropped a decent amount too..since new vehicle has full class 5 crash rating on all sides, with full airbag protection.

    um, someone asked - "is the new vehicle Japan/Korea or U.S./Canada made"?

    Yeah but basic point...some people stuck in a car loan right now...perhaps at a bad % rate, can get a new car, enjoy a full warranty, possibly enjoy a drop in insurance rates...and end up with pocket change more monthly payments than they currently have on their old car.
