These Auto Manufacturers Want to Thank You for Your Service

Many automakers offer generous discounts to current and former military members in recognition of their service to their country and communities. In some cases, the discounts off MSRP are extended to military family members and first responders, such as police officers, firefighters, and EMS personnel.

In general, it doesn’t matter whether you are or were a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, or National Guard. Though each program has specific eligibility requirements, they typically extend to active duty, reservists, military retirees, and military veterans within a few years of their discharge date.

You’ll need to be able to provide appropriate military or first responder I.D. to get the discounts. For special finance or lease deals, you will have to meet credit and income requirements. Not all of the programs are the same, so it is essential to read the fine print with any offer.

In addition to discounts on new car prices, military and first responders can also get discounts on two other expensive components of car ownership: financing and auto insurance.

Brand by brand, we’ll explore the details of the available military discounts on the following pages.
