General Motors has extended most of its customer incentives until June 30. The biggest change is on the Oldsmobile Aurora, which now carries a $4,000 payback, up from $2,000 in the program that ended March 31.
Elsewhere, Mitsubishi extended its regional consumer rebates on 1998 models until May 31, and Hyundai announced new payments on 1999 cars.
In addition to the Aurora boost, GM increases included $500 on the Pontiac Sunfire sedan, $500 on the conversion vans in the Chevrolet Astro and GMC Safari lines and $250 on the Chevrolet Cavalier sedan. The rebate on the Cavalier coupe was reduced $250 and is now $1,250, the same as the Cavalier sedan.
The Chevrolet Camaro has a double rebate - $750 nationally and an extra $750 in the South Central region; in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and South Carolina; and in selected counties in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.
The Chevy S10/T10 and GMC Sonoma compact pickups have three-way offers. The regular rebate is $1,000, but it is $1,500 in some areas. In the Southeast, South Central and West regions, the incentive is $1,000 and 6.9 percent financing.
Hyundai's rebates are slated to end June 30, and the payments on some lines vary by regions. The range is $1,000 to $1,500 on the 1999 Accent, Elantra and Tiburon. The rebate on the 1999 Sonata is $1,000 for previous owners of Hyundai cars.
