Remember the old “eat here, get gas” gag? Suzuki is offering a “buy here, get gas” program for U.S. customers. Buy any new 2010 Suzuki model between May 1 and August 31, and Suzuki will give you a prepaid gas card good for the estimated amount of fuel that vehicle will use over a three month period. The value of the prepaid card ranges from $280 to $442, depending upon the EPA mileage estimate for the model purchased.
Per Koichi Suzuki, executive vice president of American Suzuki Automotive Operations:
“Suzuki recognizes the economic challenges Americans continue to face and thought this promotion was a great way to provide relief for car buyers. Working through our U.S. dealer network, we’re happy to extend this program to consumers across the country, providing potential buyers even more reason to consider purchasing a Suzuki during the summer shopping season.”
The program includes Suzuki’s highly regarded Kizashi, a mid-sized four door sedan available with FWD or AWD. Unlike Suzuki’s of the past, which targeted niche and entry level markets, the Kizashi is meant to appeal to a more mainstream buyer. We’ll have a writeup on the 2010 Kizashi in the near future.
