Volvo rolled out a program on Monday that offers eligible customers employee pricing on a new Volvo, plus an additional $1,000 to help offset costs. Anyone who lives in a federally designated disaster or emergency area and can provide necessary documentation is able to claim this offer at participating Volvo retailers through January 2, said Volvo in a statement on its North American Web site.
Mazda said it is offering $500 toward the purchase of a new Mazda to qualified customers. In addition, qualified customers have the option to defer their first payment for 90 days from the contract date on the purchase of any new Mazda financed under special financing offered by participating lenders.
Current Mazda customers in areas hit by Hurricane Sandy will have late fees waived on Mazda Capital Services auto loans and leases, the automaker said.
Volvo and Mazda joined GM, Ford, Toyota and other automakers in offering special deals to Hurricane Sandy victims.
