Avis Budget Group Inc. announced this week that its Ultimate Test Drive car sales program is now available in New Jersey.
In collaboration with AutoNation Inc., an automotive retailer, Ultimate Test Drive offers a selection of late-model Avis and Budget rental vehicles for purchase at competitive prices. Customers can shop online (www.avis.com or www.budget.com) and schedule their "ultimate test drive." These drive tests are free-of-charge for two hours or can be as long as three days for a nominal rental fee. Then if the customer decides to purchase the vehicle, the base rental fee will be refunded once the purchase is completed through AutoNation Direct.
"Ultimate Test Drive has been successful because customers appreciate our no-haggle, no-hassle process," said Tom Gartland, president, North America, Avis Budget Group. "We're happy to expand the program to our home state and give New Jersey residents a convenient way to purchase our vehicles."
Ultimate Test Drive is also available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Texas. The program features more than 75 makes and models, ranging from Ford and General Motors to Kia, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen.
