As parts of Texas and Louisiana begin the process of rebuilding, some automakers are offering discounts for victims of the historic storm. At least three automakers are offering rebates specific to victims of the storm, which are validated by showing an insurance claim form to the dealership.
Thus far Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Hyundai and General Motors have announced some form of disaster relief incentive program. In the case of FCA, the company is offering a $500 rebate on most of its 2017 and 2018 products. FCA is allowing participants in the program to combine the disaster discount with all other promotions.
Hyundai is taking a similar approach by offering a $750 coupon to all perspective Hyundai or Genesis buyers impacted by Harvey. It too can be combined with all other promotions the respective brand is offering.
General Motors is offering a $500 discount on basically any product it offers (Chevrolet’s “L” trim level models excluded) as well. GM’s offer is tied to your county of residence instead. The offer is available to residents of the following Texas counties: Aransas, Bee, Brazoria, Calhoun, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Goliad, Harris, Jackson, Kleberg, Liberty, Matagorda, Nueces, Refugio, San Patricio, Victoria and Wharton.
Despite being county-specific, you must also show proof of insurance damage to your GM dealership to redeem the offer. Like FCA and Hyundai, GM’s program can be added to most other promotions the company is offering.
