Government Motors offerring $4500 match to Cash for Clunkers

They announced the plan this past weekend that matches the cash for clunkers program where if you trade in your gas guzzler in on a tiny eco friendly car you can get up to $4500. Government Motors will match that amount making it $9000 discount. Will you take them up on it, trade in your gas guzzler for their eco bug?
Do you realize your tax dollars are being used for this plan? So much for that discount.......

  • Heck no. The eco cars aren't even worth 9 thou so you still get ripped off.

  • Most people who have clunkers (high mileage, worth more than $4500) cannot afford the car payment. Or has Big government told banks to lighten up on people like they did with the CRA and the housing market. Bwane, Bwaney Fwank, where are you??

  • Nope. My 10 year old Saturn gets better gas mileage than most "eco-friendly" cars, AND IT'S PAID FOR!

  • We are planning on it but still havn't made our mind up on which one we are buying. This has definatley made us lean toward a GM car though. I am waiting to see if the other companies start to match this deal.

  • My van doesn't qualify because it gets more gas mileage then most vans out there. And I wanted a new Mazda van or a Mazda CX-9 crossover.
