The program begin April 1st, 2009 and will run through the end of April.
In similar fashion, Ford will make payments of up to $700 per month for up to a year on all Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicles. This program will run through June 1st, 2009.
Compared to the Hyundai Assurance+ program, the American manufacturers’ program run much longer, with Ford’s program being the better of the three.
Not a bad time to jump into a Ford. Factor in all the great incentives PLUS government assistance for domestic auto purchases, the time to buy is NOW. Or should I say, April 1st!
