    Lol me and my dad were talking and we dont know. He has a 1999 GMC Safari truck and it gets 16 (14 city 18 highway) and it actually feels like it gets better then that :)

    im trying to convince him to trade in for an SUV i liked the Pilot but i dont think itll fit the criteria.

    Civic sounds good allfired.

    What I think of the CARS program...

    Thanks alot for creating a program to destroy affordable vehicles. In 2-3 years, all used cars will be far more expensive now. Great.

    I also think it should only be applicable to vehicles made 60% or more in North America, rather than having the government ship off $600,000,000 to Japan, Korea, Germany, etc (Assuming only 40% of the cars bought are US made, which seems to be the going rate).

    Of course, I'm keeping my beat to hell Caprice, even though it qualifies. I need a car payment just as much as I need my wallet stolen again.

    This program is only going to cause the USA to dig itself into a deeper hole in the future. It is less environmentally friendly to junk a car and have a new one built, than continue to drive a fuel inefficient car.

    These companies are up to something, they will end up stripping the parts and sending them overseas. They will also probably fix up the engines and sell them overseas as well. Maybe even here in America
