As Utahns hunker down in an effort to flatten the curve of the pandemic COVID-19, there are many programs and relief efforts in place to help people get through this unnerving and difficult time. From curbside delivery at restaurants to small business loans, Americans have pulled together.
Automotive manufacturers have also taken a huge step in this endeavor. In Utah, dealerships are considered essential services because people, especially those first responders such as grocers, pharmacists, doctors, and other public service workers, still need to go out and get supplies and go to their job — safely and reliably.
Wanting to be in compliance with health restrictions, dealerships are offering personalized service and sales appointments to comply with social distancing and keep Utahns healthy. Volkswagen SouthTowne, for example, offers virtual walkarounds of vehicles you are interested in and home visits where a client advisor will bring a sanitized vehicle to your residence for a test drive. If you have to visit the dealership, you can rest assured they are not taking shortcuts with their sanitization efforts.
Even with health precautions, dealerships recognize the extreme financial burden many Utahns might be facing right now. In just three weeks, over 22 million U.S workers have filed for unemployment insurance — nearly 13% of Americans — making this period the worst economic situation since the Great Depression, claims the Washington Post. Fortunately, Volkswagen SouthTowne has a relieving financial special for those who need a new or used car right now.
For all new car purchases, as part of their payment relief sale, Volkswagen SouthTowne is offering zero dollars down, zero percent interest for 72 months, and no payments required for six months, on approved credit. They also have amazing deals on used cars right now, including 0% interest for 60 months, and no payments required for four months, on approved credit. So if you need to upgrade your car, even during a pandemic, now is the time to do so.
"We know our community is being impacted," said Jeff Davis, director of operations for Volkswagen SouthTowne, "We want to help them in a meaningful way during this time of need."
If you are a current Volkswagen customer, Volkswagen SouthTowne has great news for current customers! Volkswagen will provide up to six payments for our VCI customers who have been involuntarily unemployed due to economic reasons, including, but not limited to, lockouts, individual and mass layoffs, business failure or bankruptcy, or COVID-19.
"No other manufacturer is doing anything close to this," says Davis. "The Volkswagen Pledge is something I am extremely proud of and so happy that we can help our current customers who have been paying their car payment regularly but have recently been laid off due to COVID-19."
