If you are a college graduate and had ever caught yourself thinking that you could have afforded a car if only you had $1,000 less in student loans to pay, then you’re in luck!
Scion is working to make the life of college grads just a little bit easier by introducing a rebate program offering recent college graduates $1,000 off purchasing or leasing a new Scion vehicle. Sweetening the deal, there will be no money down and no monthly payments for the first 90 days on select TFS finance programs with competitive APRs on new Scions.
Eligibility is pretty straightforward. First, you must display a certificate of graduation to either an accredited four-year college or university, accredited two-year college, a registered nursing degree program, accredited graduate program, two-year Toyota Technical Education Network Program, two-year NATEF post secondary automotive program, or an electrician apprenticeship/certification program. Then, you must also show proof that you have a job lined up.
