    they really hosed the people that cant afford but to just keep fixing there REAL clunker, so many good parts are not getting used from the cars going into the junkyards. They pour a mixture in the engine which is pretty much liquid glass to harden, then when it actually gets to the junkyard, they CFC program only allows the car to be parted out for 180 days before it actually goes to the crusher. The junkyards on average leave the cars for 400 days before they are completely worthless and are just sold off for metal, this hurts alot of people in the long run. It was more about selling new cars then getting actual "GUZZLERS" off the road, i saw minivans being designated for CFC and they were only 2004 vans, they can easily get 24 MPG, there were hummers being sold NEW for this program!! this was just more bailout for the car companies

    My 2004 truck, which gets between 18 and 22 mpg, qualified for the maximum $4500 allowance. My dad's 98 GT mustang only qualified for half of the maximum allowance even though he only gets between 12 and 16 mpg. I'd would like to know what exactly they base their judgments on. His car is older, but mine has more miles. Why does my 5 year old truck qualify as a clunker??? It's anything but im my opinion...

    He may be only one person, but he is managing to put us much further in debt. This is one of the worst programs ever.

    Unbelieveable how many nice vehicles were destroyed in that. some of them you could have gotten more then 4500 out of. But hey what do we know right? Just another way of the government trying to make us think we are being helped when in the long run im sure wel be gettin screwed over.

    This program sickens me to no end. What a waste all in the name of helping the environment. BS!! All of the cars traded in on the program are fuel injected. Properly maintained they will/can run clean. I know people that would love to have some of the cars traded in. I too am an enthusiast, and just hate to see such nice vehicles thrown away. Especially anything performance related.

    The only people this benefitted is the auto industry, but only for a short time. My prediction, the repo industry will be booming in about 12-18 months.
