Scion iQ in Midland MI

The 2013 Scion iQ earned a 5-Year Cost to Own Award from Kelley Blue Book in recognition of its lowest projected costs of ownership in the subcompact category.

Scion iQ Saginaw MI

A lot of mid-Michigan car shoppers my not even consider the iQ because they believe that such a small car is not safe and doesn’t handle well on the snow.  Both of these assumptions are false.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Scion iQ a 4 out of 5 stars in its crash tests.  The iQ accomplished this high rating because of the STAR Safety System:

  • Vehicle stability control
  • Traction control
  • Anti-lock brake system
  • Electronic brake-force distribution
  • Brake assist
  • Smart stop technology

As well as other safety features including but not limited to:

  • Front-impact airbags
  • Side impact airbags
  • Overhead airbags
  • Knee airbags
  • Pretensioners

And for driving in the snow?  Well just do a search on Google and you find many articles of test drives including:

“The ABS brakes don’t have to work too hard considering the lightness of the car. And when I tried to get myself stuck in a snow bank, I found I couldn’t.”

And an iQ owner in Canada posted in a forum, “I’m in northern Canada  we’ve had a few days with 1 and a half feet + of snow in a day so far, usually coupled with a lot of ice (hurray for -30) and so far I haven’t had any issues up to 100 kph or so, it’s actually better than any previous vehicle I’ve had. I did put winter tires on though. But anyone without winter tires in Canada is a menace. I’m guessing it’s due to the narrow tires but the ice grip/performance is amazing.”

Hey if a guy in northern Canada says it handles well they it for sure can handle any storm that mother nature throws at the Saginaw Valley.

So put away your pre-conceived notions and head to Michigan Scion Dealer Labadie and test drive an iQ.  Who knows you might just like it!

A New 2011 Cadillac CTS for $169 Per Month?

I was watching the news the other night and saw a commercial for a Michigan Cadillac car dealership advertising a new 2011 Cadillac AWD CST for only $169 per month.  Is this deal possible?  What’s the catch?

Here’s the real deal:

2011 Cadillac CTS AWD = $39.590.00 MSRP

You can get to this payment of $169 per month IF:

  • You qualify for GM Preferred Pricing with Employee Vehicle Allowance (previously called GMS or employee pricing)
  • You put $3,000 cash down
  • You pay all fees – tax, tags, title, doc, acquisition
  • Lease is for 24 months with 10,000 allowable miles per year.

Not a bad deal if you have the cash to put down.

What if you don’t want to put any cash down?  How about the same 24 month lease with 10,000 miles per year for $298 per month with $321 due at signing? Oh . . . you still have to pay the taxes.
