TORRANCE, Calif. — Toyota Financial Services (TFS), in partnership with Toyota Motor Sales, is offering qualified college graduates a $1,000 rebate toward the purchase or lease of select new Toyota vehicles, including the Corolla, Matrix, RAV4, Camry (excludes Camry hybrid), Tacoma, Yaris, and any new Scion model.

"Toyota and Scion vehicles are some of the most popular vehicles among young adults, but more than that, they serve as a dependable way for new graduates to get to new jobs and start their careers," said Mike Groff, TFS group vice president of sales, product and marketing. "We recognize it's a tough time to be entering this economy, so we hope this $1,000 rebate, which can be coupled with other incentives, saves these new grads some money and gets them going on the right path."

Qualified college graduates receiving the $1,000 rebate are also eligible for the College Graduate Finance Program (applicable for all new Toyota/Lexus/Scion models) which offers a highly competitive APR/lease and special incentives such as:

• No money down when financing and no monthly payments for the first 90 days when leasing

• Security deposit waiver for lease

• Complimentary roadside assistance for one year

The College Rebate Program for Toyota vehicles ends March 31, 2010 and for Scion vehicles, the program ends Sept. 30, 2009 and is available to qualified customers who graduated within the last two years, or are about to graduate within the next six months.
