GM RECALLS HAVE LITTLE EFFECT ON PEER-TO-PEER VEHICLE TRANSACTIONS, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, released its latest report on vehicle incentives from May, and one particular area stood out: Despite all the attention on recalls, few GM brands are currently listed with a cash incentive.

Cash incentives are a normal practice in the world of automotive sales, but what makes this report different is that the marketplace involves person-to-person transactions. According to incentives data from May listings, only five percent of vehicles with incentives were from GM. executives believe the GM recalls in the news recently have had little impact on a person’s ability to attract someone else to take over their lease.

Overall, incentives in the marketplace have fallen slightly from the same time a year ago, with the average personal cash incentive offered listed at $2215.56 at the end of May, compared with an average of $2464.78 last year. Lessees typically offer a cash incentive as a way to sweeten the offer when looking to escape the contract.

“With manufacturers focused on more transparency, a larger number of recalls have been instituted since the recession,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of “We believe consumers are becoming immune to the issue of recalls in general.” Supporting this theory, a recent customer survey conducted by found that 90.4% of drivers believe recalls are a part of everyday life now, and they will not change their purchase decision.

Vehicles currently with the largest incentives include the Ford Expedition ($3900), Mercedes R-Class ($3000), and Nissan Murano ($2500). Vehicles currently with the lowest incentives include the Volkswagen CC ($1143), Ford Edge ($1150) and the Chevy Volt ($1663).
