Planning to buy a new vehicle? You might want to take advantage of the zero percent financing deals being offered by our automakers.
Chrysler has replaced its employee-discounts-for-all-buyers promotion with an offer of zero percent financing for up to six years on all 2006 models. The new discount plan starts Friday and is intended to clear the lots of 2006 cars and trucks to make room for 2007 models.
Ford has likewise launched a similar program last week on remaining 2006 Ford, Mercury and Lincoln cars and trucks. Ford's deal runs up until Tuesday. Not too fond of Ford? Well there’s General Motors – which enhanced its own zero-interest loans deal on 2006 and 2007 vehicles this week with additional cash ($500 to $1,500) on many vehicles. GM's program also runs through the Labor Day weekend.

Don’t look now, but the popular hybrid just got a “sexier” version with the new 2007 Prius Touring Edition which hits dealerships at the end of the month.
The jazzed Prius hybrid features a new European-tuned suspension and 16-inch alloy wheels and starts at $23,650, including a $580 shipping charge. External design cues include new wheels, a larger rear spoiler, high-intensity discharge headlamps and integrated foglamps.
Powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and an electric drive motor that produces 110 combined horsepower, the Prius returns an estimated 60 mpg in city driving and 51 mpg on the highway.
The world’s best-selling two-seat roadster, the Mazda MX-5 Miata came to the industry and took auto sales by storm in the late 80s until today.
To spice up the looks and driving comfort of the new MX-5 Miata, Mazda will equip them with a new standard hard top called Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT). Unlike the other cabriolets that open its hard top for more than 20 seconds, the PRHT of the MX-5 Miata only requires 12 seconds to open or close the roof. To achieve this breakthrough in hard top convertible design, the PRHT roof consists of three major parts —a front section, a middle section, and the rear window, which is centered and move to store one another in exactly the same space as the conventional soft top cars.
Just like the previous Miata model, the 2007 Mazda MX-5 Miata PRHT is still powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower. Customers can get the 2007 Mazda MX-5 Miata PRHT for about $24,350, plus optional packages. If you’re looking for Mazda parts, there is an online store like Auto Parts Inner that offers these parts with proven quality.
