Does my car qualify for the "Cash for Clunkers" program?

I own a 2005 Chevy Cavalier LS Sport with 28,000 miles on it.
And I brought it brand new by the way back in 2005. I want to
buy a Ford Mustang GT only. I do not want another fuel
efficient car. I want a hot rod!!

It does not qualify. In order for it to qualify for $3,500 it has to have 8 miles to the gallon better gas mileage than your existing car and to get the $4,500 it needs to be 10 miles better. Besides can't you sell the Cavalier out right and get more than the $4,500 anyway?

Nope, you're outta luck! The first qualification for the Cash for Clunkers program is that the vehicle being traded in must have a MPG rating of 18 or less. Your Cavalier does not qualify. You're gonna have to pay for your gas guzzling, emission spewing hot rod yourself.

You clearly are missing the point of the CARS program.

Go to www.cars.gov to learn about the program first...then go to www.fueleconomy.gov to find out why you won't qualify.

In order to qualify for Cash for Clunkers, your vehicle must be less than 18 combined mpg. Which the Chevy cavalier has more. And also the vehicle that you purchase must have a combined mpg of more than 22, of which the mustang gt does not. I have a 2008 Ford Mustang GT, and it guzzles a lot of gas. I estimate that I pay approximately $3000 worth of gas a year. It's a gas guzzler, and that is what the government doesn't want people like you and I drive these powerful cars. Think about trading in your car, you will get much more. Look up kbb.com to see what the trade in value of your car is.

The program doesn't allow the buyer to purchase a gas guzzling Mustang.
