The Test Drive that Gives Back

Posted by: Monica Gostkiewicz

How would you like to test drive an all-new vehicle, make a donation to the charity of your choice AND have a chance to drive away in a brand-new 2013 FIAT 500? Sounds too good to be true, but four local FIAT dealerships are indeed offering this opportunity to the Chicagoland car shoppers. But hurry, this offer ends on New Year's Eve.

It's the test drive that gives back every mile along the way. Now through December 31, 2012, participating Chicagoland FIAT dealerships will donate $5 to a charity of your choice for every qualified test drive of a FIAT 500, 500 Cabrio or 500 Abarth. In addition, Chrysler's Midwest Business Center will match this amount for a total donation of $10.

Even beyond the charitable cause, each eligible driver will be entered into the Midwest FIAT 500 Sweepstakes for the chance to win a FIAT 500 to take home for the New Year. The only catch, you must be an Illinois resident over the age of 18 to be eligible.

Visit one of the following participating FIAT dealerships to help give back and for the chance to win:
* Fields FIAT of Highland Park - Greater Chicago Food Depository
* FIAT of Chicago - Lynn Sage Foundation
* Bettenhausen FIAT of Tinley Park - Southwest Community Services
* Zeigler FIAT of Schaumburg - Illinois Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
