Yeah how great $4500 well up to $4500 depending on what you're trading and its fuel economy...not actual what the govt says it is. Intersesting and why I say its an agenda..its not about driving new car sales or even getting better fuel economy. Have you read whats required by the dealer if they take a car in trade under this? The car has to be driveable for you to trade it but once thats done the dealer has to scrap it and also disable the engine..the recommended procedure? Drain the oil and run several quarts of sodium silicate through it heat and evaporation depositing sodium silicat on the engines lubricating system thereby seizing the engine. Then the title must be stamped "junk automobile, cars.gov" to get reimbursement. So this is why I say its an agenda and a way to get older cars off the road even if you aren't ready to or don't want to buy a new one, the salvage yards aren't allowed to sell engines or whole drivetrains even though they can part out the rest of the vehicle..so sorry if your 93 (or whatever year)engine takes a crap in a year or 2 there may be no replacements to be found and you'll be forced to buy a govt motors dream car. This administration redefines insidious IMO.
