“The ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program is a great way to get old, gas-guzzling vehicles off the road,” said Carlos R. Martinez, General Sales Manager. “We found a way to make it better by offering the same savings even if a trade-in doesn’t meet the official ‘clunker’ definition.

The Administration established the CARS program to help consumers replace older, gas guzzling vehicles with new, more fuel-efficient vehicles and to help stimulate the national economy.
The government credit is $3,500 or $4,500 depending on the amount of fuel economy improvement between the old and new vehicle.
Important points for consumers to know about CARS include the following:
• Vehicle must be less than 25 years old on the trade-in date
• Only new vehicle purchases qualify
• Generally, trade-in vehicle must get less than 18 mpg and new vehicles must meet certain fuel economy requirements
• The program ends Nov. 1, 2009 or when the government funds are exhausted (whichever comes first)
“Many drivers want a fuel-efficient new vehicle,’” Martinez said. “But, some customers are discovering their old vehicle doesn’t guzzle enough gas to meet the government’s ‘clunker’ guidelines.”
