Cash for Clunkers on a New Camaro ?

Think I can get a $4500 credit on my 98 Jeep Cherokee if I trade it in when I order a new Camaro ?
There is no info on this about the Camaro on the Chevy website so.....



I could get a $4500 Credit if I trade it in on a Rav4 but that wouldn't be cool or help out with my midlife crisis.

Make sure you're going to make the MPG requirement?

Sorry, I forgot to include this link http://www.cars.gov/ GM won't have anything on their site, this is a federal gov thing. If you qualify, the dealer does it all from what I've read.

Think you can get 4500 on an LT or 3500 on an SS

Jeep and Toyota have it listed on there sites. Chevy has it on there site but I don't see a Camaro eligibilty there. Maybe because it's so new ?

I thought the car had to be at least 25 yrs old from the date you wish to trade it. I could be wrong.

From the Link www.cars.gov


Your vehicle must be less than 25 years old on the trade-in date

Only purchase or lease of new vehicles qualify

Generally, trade-in vehicles must get 18 or less MPG (some very large pick-up trucks and cargo vans have different requirements)

Trade-in vehicles must be registered and insured continuously for the full year preceding the trade-in

You don't need a voucher, dealers will apply a credit at purchase

Program runs through Nov 1, 2009 or when the funds are exhausted, whichever comes first.

The program requires the scrapping of your eligible trade-in vehicle, and that the dealer disclose to you an estimate of the scrap value of your trade-in. The scrap value, however minimal, will be in addition to the rebate, and not in place of the rebate.

The only Camaro that meets the "new car" requirement of 22mpg combined on the window sticker is the V6 Automatic (LS or LT). No other Camaro will qualify (V6 manual, V8 manual, V8 Automatic).

If your Jeep (according to Fueleconomy.gov) gets between 12.1 and 18mpg combined, then you'll get $3500 towards a Camaro (V6 Auto only). If it gets less than 12mpg or less combined, then you'd get the full $4500 towards a Camaro (V6 Auto only).

I checked it out. The LS/LT will get you a rebate but the SS does not.

Actually the SS does. As long as it's over 4MPG combined improvement over the old vehicle, it works. My Explorer has a revised average of 15mpg. An SS has 19mpg combined; and as part of a class II truck requirement in the system, it works.

So I do get 4500 + Scrap Value for the truck. Couple that with GM grad discount.. I could be shaving almost 7K off of a 32K 1SS Camaro.

You're forgetting one minor detail there, the Cash for Clunkers states that it has to get at least 4 mpg more then the scraped car AND get at least a combined rating of 22 mpg to qualify.

EDIT: http://www.cars.gov/index.php/faq#question-20

Quote:
The new vehicle must have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of not more than $45,000. That price appears on the window sticker on new vehicles. The new vehicle must also achieve minimum combined fuel economy levels. For passenger automobiles, the new vehicle must have a combined fuel economy value of at least 22 miles per gallon.

The rules are supposed to come out tomorrow. Just checked on it.

problem will not only be getting a car/camaro to qualify, the problem is going to be finding a camaro available for immediate delivery so that you can use the voucher. the program is limited and most likely wont be around when your camaro is ready for delivery, which is when your trade and finalization of the paperwork will take place

Yup; until November, or when the cash allotted runs out, whichever comes first.

Niether the SS or the LT Qualify. SS is 19MPG and the LT is 21. Just shy of the required 22MPG unless you get an Auto. I have already been down this road. If the dealer says it will fly don't believe him/her.

The only camaro you can get the cash for clunkers on is the V6 AUTOMATIC because its the only one with 22MPG. I did the cash for clunkers deal I know.

Or you can hope the regulations that come out tomorrow say differently.

The KBB site has both LT's listed, manual and automatic. It would be great if those were both listed in the final regulations due out today. I was looking at getting the 2LT and it would definitely be nice to pick up an extra $3500 off the car for my clunker.
