New Jersey VW Dealer Giving Away Three Cars For $1, But There’s A Catch

The average new vehicle loan soared to a record of $31,455 last summer, but three lucky customers at Toms River Volkswagen in New Jersey will have a chance to get a car for $1.

According to the dealership, they’re hosting a “one-time-only pre-owned sales event” where every vehicle on the lot will be marked down. Of the more than 100 vehicles in inventory, three will be marked down to just $1.

The gimmick doesn’t end there as the dealership will unlock the doors to every vehicle on the lot at 8 am on March 16th. Customers will then have to race to get into the driver’s seat of their desired vehicle. A manager will begin marking down prices at 10 am and if you’re lucky enough to be sitting in the driver’s seat of one of the vehicles marked down to $1, you’ll have a chance to buy it.

There’s no word on which vehicles will be marked down to $1, but a quick look at the dealership’s used inventory shows their least expensive vehicle is a 2004 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI which costs $5,136 and has 154,894 miles (249,278 km) on it. The dealership also has other gems such as a 2002 Hyundai Accent GL with 183,979 miles (296,085 km) for $5,642.

Of course, there are also some desirable vehicles such as a 2017 Volkswagen Touareg Wolfsburg Edition, 2018 Honda Civic Coupe and 2013 Audi S4 Premium Plus. However, all these cars cost over $20,000 so it’s unlikely they’ll be the ones discounted to $1.

Unsurprisingly, the dealership is expecting a pretty big turnout.  As a result, they recommend people get there early as they’re expecting crowds to start lining up at 6 am.


    This got to be a scam

      i doubt it. It’s only three cars that they’ve probably had a hard time selling. They’re doing it for attention, which is what they got. They get their name on news media and they’ll be hoping that while everyone is at their event, they could get some potential customers to check out cars.

        In the city I went to college, they used to give an Accent away free with purchase of the SUV that they made at the time.

        But then I can’t read my daily news from VOX…

  • Please do a follow up story. when the owner marked down the 2nd car for $1 he said this is for all his facebook critics and social media people saying he was going to give away junk cars. (then he gave the lucky customer a 2018 mitsubishi mirage)

    Run to the Hyundai Accent. There’s a good chance it’s going away for $1.
