Even though President Obama enthusiastically praised the “Cash for Clunkers” program as being a major success; lemon-wise, it looks like many new vehicle dealers such as those who sell Ford cars are getting a taste of their own medicine. Instead of lemon cars, Ford car dealers find themselves dealing with a lemon clunker problem.
Due to shortages in personnel in the “Clunker” program, many Ford dealers have yet to be paid back by the government in the form of rebates. Many Ford dealers, along with other dealers of car manufacturers such as Chrysler and Mazda, have decided that they will not honor the program anymore.
The Clunker program ended tonight,…but who knows when Ford dealers will be paid. In the eyes of car dealers, so far, the program appears to be a lemon dud.
