Automakers Offer Special New and Used Car Incentives for Grads

Whether you've completed trade school, finished a nursing program, completed an apprenticeship certification training program or earned a bachelor and/or graduate degree, most automakers want to reward you for going the extra mile. Many are offering special interest rates, relaxed credit stipulations, deferred payments, extra cash rebates, special non-negotiable pricing and complimentary roadside assistance on the purchase or the lease of a new or pre-owned vehicle. In fact, the cash rebates can be used on top of other incentives, and some automakers may even overlook charge-offs less than $1,000.
