Cash for Clunkers: The Qualifying Clunkers List

By KBB.com Editors on August 28, 2009 11:54 AM

Following is a list of cars and trucks that qualified for the government's Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS) -- more commonly known as Cash for Clunkers -- which ran in July and August of 2009. Registered owners of these vehicles were able to scrap them in exchange for vouchers worth $3,500 or $4,500 toward the purchase of new, more fuel-efficient vehicles. Some models on the list were offered with more fuel-efficent powertrains that would not qualify for the program. This list was compiled with Kelley Blue Book Western Region values -- $4,500 or less -- for standard-equipped vehicles as of 5/15/2009.

To qualify as a "clunker," vehicles had to meet these criteria:


* Must be in drivable condition
* Must have been continuously insured and registered in the same owner's name for the one-year period immediately prior to the trade in
* Must have been manufactured not earlier than 25 years before the date of trade in (some 1984 and 1985 model year vehicles won't qualify; see the manufacturing date on the driver's side door or door frame)
* Must have a combined fuel economy value of 18 miles per gallon or less (work trucks don't have a maximum fuel economy requirement, but must be model year 2001 or older)
