Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge Offers Up to $4,500 Off with or Without Clunker Trade-in

Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge participates in government “Cash for Clunkers” program beginning July 23. All customers can save up to $4,500 off a new vehicle, even without a “clunker” trade-in at Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Davis.

Davis, CA, July 24, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge expands the savings opportunity of the U.S. Government’s Car Allowance Rebate Systems (CARS), more commonly known as “Cash for Clunkers,” by offering up to $4,500 off an eligible new car purchase whether or not customers bring in qualifying “clunkers.”

“The ‘Cash for Clunkers’ program is a great way to get old, gas-guzzling vehicles off the road,” said Dan KOKOTAS, General Manager. “We found a way to make it better by offering the same savings even if a trade-in doesn’t meet the official ‘clunker’ definition.

“If the trade-in is a qualifying ‘clunker,’ then we will add to the government’s rebate for a total savings up to $9,000. We call it ‘Double Ca$h for Your Old Car.’”

The Administration established the CARS program to help consumers replace older, gas guzzling vehicles with new, more fuel-efficient vehicles and to help stimulate the national economy.

The government credit is $3,500 or $4,500 depending on the amount of fuel economy improvement between the old and new vehicle.

Important points for consumers to know about CARS include the following:

Vehicle must be less than 25 years old on the trade-in date
Only new vehicle purchases qualify
Generally, trade-in vehicle must get less than 18 mpg and new vehicles must meet certain fuel economy requirements
Trade-in vehicle must be registered and insured continuously for the full year preceding the trade-in date
The program ends Nov. 1, 2009 or when the government funds are exhausted (whichever comes first)

“Many drivers want a fuel-efficient new vehicle,’” Kokotas said. “But, some customers are discovering their old vehicle doesn’t guzzle enough gas to meet the government’s ‘clunker’ guidelines.”

Swift Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Davis, is offering $3,500 or $4,500 savings on most 2009MY new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep® vehicles. Customers are not required to trade-in a ‘clunker’ to benefit from this savings. However, if customers do have “clunkers,” they can save up to a total of $9,000 off eligible new vehicles.

Consumers can learn more about the CARS program at www.cars.gov or by calling the U.S. Department of Transportation’s information hotline at 866-(CAR)-7891.
