Over 60,000 Clunkers Rejected in US CARS?
But an interesting report is now surfacing in online media. It appears that approximately 60,000 clunkers have been rejected, in spite of US officials' statements that the CARS was intended to help anyone interested in replacing an old car with a new, greener and more fuel efficient vehicle.
The question is how could that happen and which are the reasons for so many clunkers getting rejected? Well, according to a report posted on huliq.com, it was all due to dealers participating in the scheme who, because of a still unknown reason, didn't fill the applications correctly.
This means buyers had no fault, not even the government who's still allowing registered dealership to resubmit the applications and thus give affected buyers one more chance to trade in their clunker.
There's not much to do in case you're one of those affected by this problem as dealerships who failed in completing the applications according to the rules must resubmit the documents automatically. Furthermore, they can't ask people to pay the car unless you receive the clunker voucher.
Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Toyota Camry were the top three best-selling models through the scheme, followed by Ford's Focus. GM, Ford and Chrysler accounted for 39 percent of all 690,000 cars sold through the scheme.
