The rest of the car can be sold for parts, basically they make the money, thats why in most cases they will be doing it for free with the reward ~$300 scrap and/or possibly good parts they can turn a profit on. The program is expected to run out of money VERY VERY fast!
    it also has to get less then 16 mpg fuel economy as listed by the epa, most 4 cyl hondas are exempt

    18 MPG, not 16 MPG.

    BTW, I'll be getting a Saturn Astra through this program. I'll be getting $3500 for the Camaro, which is aboout $3000 more than the car is worth. This program will help very few people in the end, due to the fuel economy and the requirement of purchasing a brand new car. I know they're going to run out of money quickly, because it's only going to provide vouchers for 250,000 people. At the dealership yesterday, 3 people came in while I was there asking about the program. This is at a small Saturn dealership during a heavy rain storm. Right now, I'm just hoping no one buys the Astra that I want between now and next Monday.

    Can you get me a Fit Sport with a manual and NAV for $15,000? That's the ONLY thing Honda I'd buy over the Astra right now.

    Re: cash for clunkers

    i'm suprised so many late model domestic cars have such lousy fuel mileage and low trade in value. I figured the acura would qualify, it really sucks a lot of gas for not much power. most of these cars are already sitting in junkyards as of now. the aztek not only gets lousy mileage, it's but ass ugly. i

    You really don't read the full threads, do you. Nor do you seem to keep up with the news.

    Cash for Clunkers is long gone. Our cars didn't qualify for Cash for Clunkers. Neither did 4th gen Accords.

    Now, I'm getting ready to scrap what's otherwise a usable 3gee if you want it so bad. I'm in Florida and the scrap man will give me $150 for it. Come and get it.

    the news today showed that the majority of turned in cars were worn out trucks that were traded for new trucks that got only slightly better fuel economy.
