Suzuki offers free gas for summer

Consumer Reports News: April 30, 2010 09:35 AM

It seems like a distant memory, but it was just two years ago when the country was plagued by high (over $4) gas prices that had consumers trading in guzzlers for more fuel-efficient cars, hanging up the car keys for a motorcycle or scooter, or turning to public transportation. While it doesn’t look like gas prices will near those levels this summer (the Energy Information Administration predicts regular fuel will average $2.92 for the season), Suzuki is looking to lure buyers with a free gas promotion for the summer.

The offer is available on purchases of Suzuki’s 2010 models: the Suzuki Kizashi, SX4 SportBack, SX4 Sedan, SX4 Crossover, Grand Vitara, and Equator. Customers will receive a pre-paid gas card to cover three months of gas ranging in value from $280 to $442. The amount will be determined by the EPA rating of the vehicle, an estimated average of 1,000 miles a month, and the EIA’s price of gasoline.

The promotion kicks off May 1 and runs through August 31. Check out our new car selector to see our Ratings on Suzuki vehicles. For more information and tips on saving fuel, see our guide.
