If you’re in the market to buy a new car, Chevrolet has a limited time incentive program that may be hard to pass up.
General Motors has initiated a bold plan to lure new buyers to their most popular brand. Under its new “Chevy Confidence” program, consumers can return any new 2012 or 2013 Chevrolet car or truck within 60 days –if they’re not-for whatever reason- satisfied with their purchase and get a full refund. GM calls it, “The Love it or Return it” program. However, there are a few caveats: the vehicle must have fewer than 4,000 miles and no damage when it’s returned. GM also announced no-haggle pricing for all 2012 Chevy models. The promotion runs through Labor Day weekend.
And in other news---An international automotive icon, whose incomparable designs were emblazoned on some of the most glamorous cars on the road, has died recently.
Famed automotive designer Sergio Pininfarina passed away at his home in Turin, Italy at the age of 85. Pininfarina brought unrivaled style to numerous cars, especially those from Ferrari, with classic designs like the F-1 inspired 2002 Enzo Ferrari , and the four-place 612 Scaglietti. He talked to us about the 612 when it was unveiled in 2004.
SERGIO PININFARINA: It is faster, it is lighter, it is more room inside, and it is more room for the baggage compartment. Everything is more, but even more aggressive and this is important because the front look and the look of the car is very elegant and very sporty as a Ferrari should be.
Pininfarina took the reins of his father’s company in 1966 and turned it into a global automotive design and fabrication powerhouse. He put his iconic stamp on cars from Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Ferrari, Rolls Royce and many others. A stylish man of wit and charm, Sergio Pininafarina will fondly be remembered as the Italian Godfather of automotive design.
