Metro Credit Union offers Invest in America program

Low auto loan rates and GM savings add up for credit union members


Chelsea, MA – May 6, 2009 - Metro Credit Union has teamed up with General Motors to offer the Invest in America discount auto purchase program.  During May, GM is offering a $500 incentive on select vehicles on top of the GM Supplier Discount Pricing, if the car is financed with Metro Credit Union.  In addition, Metro is offering a .50% discount off the standard auto loan rate for qualified borrowers.

To encourage consumers to purchase American made cars, GM and their divisions, Chevy, Buick, Pontiac, GMC, Saturn, Cadillac and Hummer announced their new Total Confidence Program.  The Invest in America program dovetails nicely with this program to offer credit union members an exceptional value.  The Total Confidence package includes a 100,000 mile or five-year powertrain warranty, one year of OnStar on most GM vehicles, and a payment protection program in which GM will make loan payments, up to $500 per month for nine months in the event of job loss during the first two years of ownership.

During the first quarter of 2009, nearly 100,000 vehicles have been sold through the Invest in America program.  “In today’s tough market, Invest in America is a way customers can get a great deal, coupled with available, competitive financing, through their credit union,” said Jim Bunnell, GM executive director.
