Did Hurricane Matthew Eat Your Car? If So, Nissan Will Give You Employee Pricing on a New Ride
Heavy discounts are Nissan’s way of giving backby Mark McNabb, on
Hurricane Matthew devastated Florida’s eastern coastline during the first week in October before continuing north as it brought damage to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia before sweeping out to sea. Cities ranging from Miami to Norfolk felt the winds from the late-season storm. Millions were without power, thousands lost homes, and many more lost vehicles. That’s why Nissan is offering to help hurricane victims with heavy discounts on new Nissan vehicles.
Nissan is giving customers and businesses in the affected states access to employee pricing discounts so long as they can show proof of residency and proof their vehicle was damaged or destroyed during the storm. The program has no limits within households, meaning if a family had three vehicles affected by the storm, they could get employee pricing on three new Nissan vehicles.
Those who choose to finance through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation can qualify for a deferred payment plan that allows a three-month grace period before payments begin. Existing customers who reside in FEMA disaster areas can alloy for payment extensions, both for lease and retail vehicles.
The program is open though October 31, 2016 and includes most Nissan North American’s products.

Why It Matters
We don’t normally report on vehicle incentives and dealer pricing deals, but we’re making an exception here. Nissan is doing a good deed by offering discounts on its vehicles for storm victims. Hurricane Mathew proved to a widespread event that brought the entire East Coast to its knees. An untold number of cars, crossovers, SUVs, and trucks were destroyed, leaving people without transportation. What’s worse, buying a new vehicle can be challenging for customers who are also trying to rebuild or repair their houses or property. That’s where the deferred payment plan comes handy. It allows folks the chance to spend cash on other necessities before car payments kick in.
Nissan is also allowing customers to stack incentives on top of the Employee Pricing deal, meaning a vehicle’s MSRP can dramatically drop. Nissan says “most” of its vehicles are eligible for the program, so we’re betting you won’t get employee pricing on a new GT-R. Nevertheless, there are plenty of other vehicles under the Nissan umbrella to choose from.
