FIGHT THE FUEL INCREASE AT VAUXHALL'S BIG EVENT
By bianca16 | Friday, November 16, 2012, 11:27
As over two thirds of drivers admit fuel prices have altered
Mokka Big Event
their driving habits, local Vauxhall dealer, SLM Vauxhall, is helping motorists
take to the road for less by offering customers £500 of free fuel at their
forthcoming Big Event weekend.
The poll, which was commissioned by Vauxhall*, also revealed
that the cost of fuel would influence the purchasing decisions of 71 per cent
of drivers when buying a new vehicle, whilst 37 per cent of drivers admitted
seeking out petrol stations which offer the most competitive fuel prices.
Fortunately for motorists in the South East, between Friday
16th and Monday 19th November, the dealership on Dowding Way, Tunbridge Wells
is hosting the special event whereby customers who purchase a brand new
Vauxhall vehicle, such as Vauxhall's brand new sub-compact SUV, the Mokka, can
drive away with £500 of free fuel**.
Jonathan Tatlock, General Manager at SLM Vauxhall, comments:
"It is not surprising to discover that the increase in fuel prices is having a
significant impact on drivers – indeed, three quarters are using their car less
as the costs of running their vehicle mount up.
"We're keen to ensure people continue to enjoy getting out
and about, so it will come as welcome news that, based on the average amount
drivers in the South East spend on fuel each week (£31), the offer of £500 of
free fuel would give motorists in the area four months of free driving!"
Helping drivers take to the road for less
In addition, during the four-day event, customers at the
dealership can also take advantage of Vauxhall's unique and innovative zero per
cent APR Flexible Finance scheme***.
Available on new cars from the Vauxhall range, Flexible
Finance allows customers to tailor their financial plans to suit them. With no
minimum deposit, zero per cent APR and
flexible payment terms, which can vary between 24 and 60 months, motorists are
able to purchase a brand new Vauxhall for a monthly payment that fits in with
their personal budget.
What's more, Vauxhall is offering up to £1,000 deposit
contribution on a range of new cars purchased on Flexible Finance. This,
combined with the free fuel offer available throughout The Big Event weekend,
allows customers to save even more when purchasing a new Vauxhall.
Plus, all new Vauxhall cars also come with a warranty which
could now last a lifetime, so customers can be confident that they are getting
the best possible aftercare and service. Available to the first owner of all
new Vauxhall cars, the warranty is valid for the lifetime of the vehicle up to
a maximum of 100,000 miles.
Jonathan Tatlock concludes: "We recognise that it's a
challenging time at the moment, with many motorists taking much more care when
planning and managing the costs of running their car and so we are really
looking forward to helping customers find their ideal Vauxhall, take advantage
of our highly competitive offers and drive away with free fuel during The Big
During the event period, customers purchasing a new car will
also be able to enjoy a discount of 20 per cent off accessories fitted by SLM
