The council also acts as a communications link between General Motors Corporation and the minority community.

Over the course of 25 years, the scholarship program provided more than $1 million in financial assistance.

The Benefits of Leasing a Car

A successful car dealership owner, Inder Dosanjh serves as president of Fremont Automotive Retailing Group, Inc., in California. With more than three decades of experience in the automotive industry, Inder Dosanjh possesses a thorough understanding of car financing options, including loans and leases.

Although it is not for everyone, leasing an automobile can offer several advantages that many consumers may find very attractive. Perhaps the biggest advantage to leasing is that it can be much more inexpensive than buying.

In general, lease payments are 30 to 60 percent less than a loan payment would be for the same make and model of car. Also, most auto leases require little or no up-front cash, which frees up money for other expenses.

In addition, because lease terms typically do not extend past the length of a manufacturer’s warranty period, maintenance and repair costs are usually quite low. Short lease terms also enable consumers to drive a new car every two to four years, which is generally not a possibility for most buyers.
