#219 of 220 Rebates on New Cars??? Trailblazer trade-in?
Jul 23, 2009 (8:21 am)
I'm not sure where to post this question...but I've got a 2003 Trailblazer, EXT, fully loaded with equipment and fully loaded with constant problems. I was reading about the new federal rebate about trading in a vehicle that got less than 18 mpg on one that gets 22mpg, etc. The only problem I have, is that one of the reasons I purchased the Trailblazer, EXT, was for the room. Anybody have any suggestions on a SUV to look at?

If your talking about the "cash for clunkers" program, the "clunker" you trade in can't be resold, it has to be scrapped, so in essence the dealer probably won't be willing to give you much if anything at all on a trade in. Go see http://www.cars.gov/ for more info.
There's also a credit you can take off next years tax return for the sales tax you pay when buying a "qualified" new car, even in states with no sales taxes. Unlike the "cash for clunkers" program though there's income exclusions on this.
Both of these programs are full of conditions, you need to do your homework before relying on them. They are both part of the "economic stimulus" package, which hopefully won't stimulate all of us into bankruptcy in the future..........
There's lots of info out on the web about both programs.
