Buyers Can Order Clunker Replacement


Detroit News - August 13, 2009

Many deal­ers are run­ning short of “Cash for Clunk­ers” eli­gi­ble vehi­cles. To assist with this prob­lem, the Trans­porta­tion Depart­ment will now allow vehi­cles in the pro­duc­tion pipeline to be includ­ed. The biggest ben­e­fi­cia­ries of this pro­gram appear to be Ford and Toy­ota. Ford announced it was crank­ing up pro­duc­tion so small car fac­to­ries can meet demand. The $3 bil­lion allo­cat­ed for this pro­gram may only last anoth­er three weeks.
