ANCHOR LEAD: What tops your mind when it’s time to buy a new car… is it features or how you’re going to come up with the down payment. Brian Osuch gives you the green light for both. (:60) SCRIPT: Zero-to-Sixty, I’m Brian Osuch. If you’re in the market for a new car, it’s best to know your own driving habits. Does your car sit in the driveway a lot – if that’s the case, perhaps consider electric. Do you drive over 35-miles per week? Perhaps Diesel is best for you. GM’s James Bell, says it’s also important to think about what’s up and coming. CUT: (Bell) You’ve just got a lot of technologies that are going to be bringing things that consumers haven’t seen to the dealership. I think of the new Chevrolet Malibu with stop/start technology. What this does, is it allows the engine to turn off when you’re sitting at a stoplight, or maybe creeping through a parking lot. You’re not burning fuel, you’re not creating emissions… you’re saving money. SCRIPT: Finance Expert, Lynette Khalfani-Cox says there’s another way to save some money… and this time, when is comes to the down payment. CUT: (Khalfani-Cox) People who have a credit card that has a rewards feature to it, this can be a big bonus. For instance, there’s the new GM card from Capital One that lets you accrue earnings based on your everyday spending and those earnings can be applied towards the purchase or lease of a new GM vehicle.
