Suzuki Offers SX4 Buyers Free Summer Gas

Suzuki is offering a summer of free gas for anyone who purchases a new Suzuki SX4, thus outdoing Hyundai and their $1.49 gas. The catch? It's based on how much they assume you'll drive.

Those buying a 2009 Suzuki SX4, a car we generally like, will get a pre-paid gas card worth $270 for the sedan and $290 for the crossover. This is based on an assumption of 1,000 miles per month. It's not a great deal, but on top of a $2,000 bonus for people who buy the manual version it's not a bad one either.

SUZUKI ANNOUNCES "FREE GAS FOR SUMMER" SALES EVENT

BREA, Calif. (July 1, 2009) – To help motorists at the pump this summer driving season and generate additional traffic to U.S. showrooms, American Suzuki Motor Corp. has announced a nationwide sales promotion offering car buyers three months of free gasoline on retail purchases of new 2009 Suzuki SX4 Sedan and 2009 SX4 Crossover models. In addition, Suzuki is offering $2,000 in customer cash on all 2009 SX4 models equipped with manual transmission. The Suzuki "Free Gas for Summer" sales program, which kicks off July 1 and runs through Aug. 31, is expected to further build brand interest and bolster summer sales of its versatile SX4 lineup.

"Suzuki recognizes the economic challenges facing Americans and thought this promotion was a great way to provide relief for car buyers," said Koichi Suzuki, executive vice president, American Suzuki Automotive Operations. "Working through our U.S. dealer network, we're happy to extend this unique program to consumers across the country, providing potential buyers even more reason to consider purchasing a Suzuki SX4 during the summer shopping season."

Customers will receive a stored value debit card that can be used for fuel purchases. The amount of each stored value gas card is determined by several factors, including an assumed three-month timeframe for summer driving, the car's EPA estimated highway mpg, the Federal Highway Administration's estimated average of 1,000 miles driven per month and the U.S. national average price of one gallon of regular gasoline as determined by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
