Few college students realize they can save money on a brand new vehicle simply for being a college student. GM offers discounts that amount to a couple thousand dollars or more for college students. I'm sure other automobile manufacturers offer similar programs. Students might have to contact their school's student affairs department to inquire about these discounts. I received them automatically in an email from my school from GM a couple years ago. I didn't take advantage of the opportunity then. Obviously, most students can't purchase a brand new vehicle outright. It's still a nifty discount for college students that do have the money to spare.
