2015 Erie Auto Show
This year at the Erie Auto Show the Erie Ford Dealers will be giving Auto Show goers the opportunity to get $50 just for test driving a new Ford! It’s called the $50 Test Drive Incentive Program and here’s how you can participate:

Visit the 2015 Erie Auto Show at the Bayfront Convention Center between Thursday, January 29th and Sunday, February 1st. Once inside, find the Ford display and look for one of Ford’s product specialists. Sign up with the product specialist and they can tell you all of the details you need to know. You will receive an email within 24 hours of signing up that needs to be presented to your Erie Ford Dealer. Between the dates of January 29th and February 28th, you can test drive any of your favorite new Ford vehicles. Once the test drive is complete, you will receive information from the dealer that will need to be entered into the Ford Test Drive website. When submission is completed online, you will receive your $50 check in the mail once the program is complete.

While at the Ford display, make sure you check out the all-new 2015 F-150. Now with an all-new military grade aluminum alloy body. It weighs less giving you better gas mileage. And then look for the new 2015 Mustang. It’s legendary!

See you at the Show!
