It would be interesting to learn how many of these new cars were bought from GM and Chrysler.
LOL - we took advantage of the program and bought a FORD!!!!
We truly needed to replace 97 clunker w/172K miles that got 16 mpg and had electrical problems.
I'm tempted to thank my next door neighbor for sharing his wealth (cash) and making this purchase possible...he was only person in neighborhood who voted for Nobama.
That’s a good question. I went online last night to see if my Wife’s 95 Windstar qualified for the program. I was given a big “Congradulations!” and was given a list of new vehicles I could choose from. The only problem is that my wife is disabled and we need another minivan for her scooter to go into.
I stuck that into the search engine and came up with 11 possibilities, 10 Fords (Their new 2010 design that looks like a bread truck!) and 1 Mazda 5 series. The Mazda was the most expensive with a sticker of $19K AFTER the $4500.00 rebate, with the cheapest Ford comming in at $16K.
Told my Wife that and she wasn’t too impressed by it. Neither am I....I guess the Disabled who need scooters or other means to get around are S.O.O.L. when it comes to a new car..and this looks indicative of the US Gov Health Care system they want to stick up our Bazoos....
