List of Late Model Used Cars Qualifying for "Cash for Clunkers"

June 18, 2009

Cash for clunkersThe "Cash for Clunkers" bill passed the House last week with a vote of 298-119 and it looks likely to pass in the Senate this week.

If so, sometime this summer, anyone trading in a used car with a combined EPA rating of 18 mpg or less with a new one getting at least 22 mpg will get a $3,500 voucher towards the purchase of the new car. Truck buyers who get more than a 4 mpg difference are eligible for a $4,500 voucher.

Here is a list of late-model used cars worth less than $3,500 AND would qualify for the voucher:

If your car is on the list and you're ready for a new one, wait and make sure you buy AFTER the legislation has passed. In the meantime, to see how low dealers in your area will go on prices (and to see what rebates are included), fill out our free Price Report Form

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
