Costco Wants To Sell You A Chevy, And A Volvo

Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ: COST) has been in the car sales business for years. It occasionally runs the equivalent of a “sale”. The most recent sale promotes many of the models in the Chevy lineup, and niche cars made by small and troubled Volvo.

The Costco Auto Program is available to the big-box retailer’s members. Unlike most other retailers, Costco charges customers for the privilege to shop in its stores. The program sets prearranged prices with manufacturers, which in theory saves Costco members money. The plan covers new and pre-owned cars. Its car maker partners have to be thrilled with the results. Last year, members bought over 600,000 vehicles via the plan.

Lease Chevy Bolt For $154 A Month

As electric cars increase in popularity, we’ll begin to see more traditional deals on them. In addition, when automakers are struggling to sell these cars, the situation may encourage healthy incentives. While we are supposedly in a post-COVID situation, times are still tough for many, and automakers are advertising solid deals for the month of September.

Several electric vehicles are available with either excellent lease deals, large discounts, low financing rates, or deferred payment plans. Some cars are available with a combination of these offers. Not all deals are equally appealing, but we’ve included them for comparison.

As usual, Chevrolet Bolt EV deals are superb. BMW is offering good options for the i3. Leasing a Tesla Model 3 isn’t cheap, but compared to the Jaguar I-Pace, it looks like a steal. Pay particular attention to all the 0% financing and really low monthly lease payments. Several EVs are leasing around

Chevy Classics!

Chevrolet used to have an advertising campaign that touted, “Baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet.” Supposedly, General Motor’s largest division attempted to indoctrinate consumers into believing that a Chevrolet was as mainstream as Main Street, USA. In many ways this campaign worked. For generations now the Chevrolet division has been serving up cars that have been snapped up by Americans, particularly those seeking their first car. Let’s take a look at three Chevy classics that have shaped the respected US automaker.

Corvette – In 1953, the Chevy Corvette was released and the auto market hasn’t been the same since. This two seat ragtop paved the way for greater and lesser cars to enter the US market including Chevy’s own Camaro and Chevelle; Pontiac’s Firebird and GTO; Ford’s Thunderbird and Mustang; the Dodge Charger; Plymouth ‘Cuda; AMC Javelin; Datsun 240Z; and a host of other cars. For over 50 years, the limited … Read More

How I Replaced the Rusted Floor Pans in My 1962 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova

I bought my 1962 Chevy II Nova in 1988 from a friend I was serving with in the National Guard. The car was rather sound. There were really no problems and I was able to drive it home, in fact, I did no work to the car for a number of years. I would drive it to work a couple of times a week and again take it out weekends. I was really happy with the car. Three years ago, I decided to repaint it. I know I could have taken it to a body shop, but I wanted to do it myself. I wanted this to be a project my son and I could work on together. I began stripping the car down and this is the beginning of my story.

I figure I will be learning a lot during the process of restoring my Nova back to its … Read More
