Cash for Clunkers Question...
 
OK, so my wife and I have this truck that's MAYBE worth $500 that we're going to trade in for this program on a new Honda Fit. So we got them down on the price, but I was under the impression that the dealer had to give us scrap value FOR the truck. This could be like around a grand apparently...

The dealer is acting like they don't make any profit off this deal, which I'm like, "SURE YOU DO."

Basically, the government is giving THEM $4500 for our truck and we're giving them the truck for free. Should I be demanding the scrap value applied to the price? Legally they HAVE to let us see the scrap estimate...

I thought there was a $1m cap on this 4500 thing which equates to about 222 cars. If you get this discount consider yourself lucky.

I'm not sure they have to give anything else over the $4,500 that they are giving you for your truck. Average junker goes for around $500. How does this plan work does it come right off the price of the car and if they are giving you the $4,500 which is the max I bet you have to claim that as income on your taxes. That just a guess.

I beleive comes directly off the price of the car and the dealer gets the money fro mthe govertment. I would have negotatied first then drop the 4500 bomb otherwise I could see dealers think that was their haggled down price.

You have to have owned the car for I believe 2 or 4 years to get that deal.

You have to have owned the clunker for 1 year, and you have to drive it to the dealer, and the 4500 or 3500 is not taxable income to the consumer, but to the dealer.
Go Skins, this is the year !!!!!!!!!

Re: Cash for Clunkers Question...
 
I have a question that somebody might be able to help me with. I pulled a real dumb stunt, and bought a car that someone else now drives, but I am obligated for. It is a 2001 SUV, and I would love to sell it and be done with it, but I am way upside down on the loan. Does anyone think I could use this as a way to get this over with? I am able to make the payments etc, I just want to get out from this other situation entirely. Also, could I trade in a 2nd car at the same time, although not for the cash for clunkers rebate, just to get rid of two older cars for one new one?
