January 9, 2012 - Torrance, Calif. – As tens of thousands of troops return from overseas deployments, Toyota and Toyota Financial Services (TFS), and Lexus and Lexus Financial Services (LFS) are offering special APRs and rebates to qualified military personnel and inactive reserves through participating dealers.

In recognition of their service, qualified Toyota buyers under the Welcome Home Special APR Program can receive a 1.9% APR for up to 60 months when financing any new 2011 or 2012 Toyota vehicle through a participating Toyota dealer and TFS. In addition, a $500 Military Rebate may be used in conjunction with the special APR.

Lexus buyers who qualify under the Welcome Home Special APR Program can receive a 0.9% APR for up to 60 months on new 2011 or 2012 ES and IS (includes all sedans, Convertible and IS F) and 2012 RX350 vehicles or 1.9% APR for up to 60 months on any other new Lexus vehicle when financing through a participating Lexus dealer and LFS.

"We understand that it's certainly a tough economic time right now for many military families, so it's our hope that these special APRS and rebates, which can be coupled with other incentives, will help our troops save some much-needed and hard-earned money."
