The Costco Auto Program today announced General Motors’ brands surpassed Toyota and Honda to take the no. 1 position among the most-requested vehicles by Costco members, in October.
“Taking the no. 1 spot as the most-requested brand by Costco members confirms that we made the right decision in partnering with the Costco Auto Program to offer the Costco GM Holiday Sales Event,” said James Bell, head of consumer affairs for General Motors. “Together, we were able to collaborate on a unique savings opportunity, featuring a diverse vehicle selection, GM Supplier Pricing and a Costco Cash Card offer that members find valuable during the holiday season. We’re excited to be a part of it!”
The Costco Auto Program launched the Costco GM Holiday Sales Event, Oct. 1, 2014.
