What the heck are these guys thinking? This is a Fed program. Did anyone think they’d get a fast turn around?

It doesn't sound like 'delays' but out and out subterfuge in wording - Works like this: person comes in with 'clunker' - really mostly viable cars with many years left but people who can afford a lengthy car payment and high new-car insurance are jumping for it, while the folk with true clunkers can't afford the deal - but to get back to the process.

The dealer fills out the application for the deal online and waits for a response. When it comes, it says "accepted" - dealer seals the deal, customer drives off with new car, clunker destroyed...

Then, oops, along comes these notices from the gov't on the deal that says "rejected."

What? Seems the gov't used the wrong word - instead of saying application 'received' it says 'accepted'. They didn't mean that and the final word coming back is "rejected." NOT DELAYED - get it?

I know personally of one dealership in South Carolina now out 10 million - that's 10,000,000 - dollars of 'rejected' - Just another mega screw up by this administration - with disastrous results for dealers, many of whom will be bankrupted over this gov't program.

Yep. Sure I want them running my health care.

By my understanding, according to an earlier draft of the rules, an application wasn't complete (and thus the government couldn't actually "approve" it) until the dealer signed off on the fact that the car had already been destroyed. It seems the rule has been changed, but I'm not sure exactly when. In any case, I don't think the confusion was accidental.

I wonder if there is any relationship between rejections and past Repubublican political donations by the dealership owners?
