Return of the GMAC – 3 and Easy
Chevrolet UK and GMAC (UK) have joined forces to re-launch their retail finance package, 3 and Easy. Originally intended to run for just one month from July 1, 2005, on a limited number of models, the car finance package proved popular enough to extend across the Chevrolet range and eventually ran for more than a year.
The package requires buyers to pay one-third of the vehicle’s cost up front, followed by one-third after the first 12 months and the final third at the end of the second year.
With no interest or fees, customers pay only the list price and own the vehicle outright at the end of the term.
3 and Easy will be available from January 15 across the Chevrolet range on a number of Matiz, Kalos, Lacetti and Tacuma models.
