When you think of half price sales, you might think about clothes or sneakers or, if you’re really lucky, jewelry. But one thing that you’ve probably never seen for half off – at least not legitimately – is a new car. Until now.
We’re happy to announce that AutoNation Direct, our online automotive merchant,has teamed up with eBay Motors to sell a select number of vehicles for half price. The sale begins today, March 23 through March 30, 2012, at http://stores.ebay.com/autonationdirect. Complete information about pricing, delivery and other details can be found there.
These aren’t some clunkers that nobody wants to buy. These are high-demand Ford, General Motors and Nissan vehicles (all within the 2011 to 2013 model year range) that anyone would be proud to own – and at half off, you’ll have more to brag about than just your new ride. Others can talk about how they out-negotiated the dealer, but nobody except a few members of Oprah’s audience and the occasional Price Is Right contestant will be able to top you.
What’s the catch? There isn’t any, except for the fact that there is only going to be a select number of vehicles put up for auction each day, so you’ll want to pay close attention to make sure you get yours. Act fast before they’re all gone.
