South Carolina International Auto Show

Extending an invitation to the thousands of college students in the surrounding region, the South Carolina International Auto Show will once again host College Two-Fer Day, on Friday, January 16, 2009. In addition to being able to check out all the new 2009-models on display, students will also be able to explore futuristic concept cars, 2010 pre-production models, alternative fuel vehicles and more. The show will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, and students with valid college IDs who buy one $8 adult admission at the Carolina First Center box office will get a second student admission free, with a second valid college ID.

The auto show offers something for everyone. Most of the vehicles are unlocked and attendees are encouraged to sit in the vehicles, push buttons, inspect engines and compare legroom on hundreds of new models.

Students won't want to miss some of the hottest grad-friendly vehicles including the redesigned Honda Fit, Chevrolet Aveo, Ford Focus Coupe, Dodge Caliber, Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Jetta and Nissan Sentra. These models are competitively priced and offer fuel efficiency over 30 mpg highway two key factors appealing to budget-conscious consumers. Those in search of a "greener" vehicle will want to follow the Green Trail to check out the latest hybrids on display from Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, GMC, Lexus, Mercury, Saturn, Toyota and more.

College students in the market for a new vehicle will be pleased to know that nearly all manufacturers offer incentive programs for recent graduates. Although they vary, manufacturer incentives typically include lower down payments, lower interest rates, rebates and cash bonuses. These college incentive programs generally require students to be within four months of graduation, or to have graduated and been out of school for up to 24 months. Interested students are encouraged to speak with auto show manufacturer representatives or visit the dealership of their choice for more information on program details.

The South Carolina International Auto Show is sponsored by the South Carolina Automobile Dealers Association along with The Greenville News and produced by Motor Trend Auto Shows, LLC, the nation's largest auto show producer and part of the Source Interlink Companies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SORC). The auto show will be open to the public Friday, January 16 through Sunday, January 18 at the Carolina First Center, located at One Exposition Avenue in Greenville, South Carolina.
