Art Gamblin Motors has been chosen by Chevrolet and Buick to pilot two test marketing programs to determine their viability before they are launched across the nation.

Chevrolet’s insurance initiative program targets the second largest expenditure for an automobile, which is automobile insurance. Now through Sept. 6, anyone living in Washington or Oregon purchasing a new Chevrolet or Buick from Gamblin will receive one year’s worth of automobile insurance through MetLife Auto and Home. General Motors is paying for the coverage regardless of driving record. The customer’s only requirement is to have a valid drivers license.

“This is an unbelievable value for all our customers and can save even families like mine over $2,000,” Enumclaw dealership owner Alan Gamblin said. “We are glad that we have been chosen to participate in this program. So far the response has been overwhelming.”

Gamblin emphasizes there is no cost to the customer and the MetLife Auto policy they receive isn’t a cut rate policy, it has coverage’s that every lender in the state of Washington require when financing a new vehicle.

Gamblin was one of 50 dealers on the West Coast to test no-percent interest loans through Wells Fargo Bank. Gamblin was chosen because it is currently partners with Wells Fargo, the dealership’s bank.

“Wells Fargo is one of the largest lenders in the Puget Sound and it is our bank,” said Rick Josie, sales manager. “This has made getting an incentivized 0 percent loan much easier to get for our customers.”
