With the introduction of Ford's "Ford Family Plan" and Chrysler's "Employee Pricing Plus," all of the big three have now effectively reduced the prices of most of their vehicles by between three and five percent. Of course, like most incentive programs, not every single car is discounted. Of course, the most desirable cars —- the ones most likely to fly off the shelves without a rocket booster — are not covered by the plan.

Car Models Excluded from Employee Discount Plans:

GM: Chevrolet Corvette, Pontiac GTO (yep) and medium-duty trucks.

Ford: Lincoln Mark LT, Ford Mustang GT, and Escape Hybrid, all European brands.

Chrysler: Chrysler 300, Dodge Magnum, Dodge Charger, Dodge Sprinter van, Dodge Viper sports car, Jeep Liberty diesel and high-performance SRT models.
