Description:

This paper investigates, by analyzing related literature and by conducting an original survey of new car dealerships in southwest Indiana and western Kentucky, the U. S. government Cash for Clunkers program, which was designed to stimulate sales within the automotive industry during the 2009 Great Recession. The paper reviews the literature and relates all the findings of the survey in table format. The paper concludes that the dealerships indicated that the Cash for Clunkers program was worthwhile; however, if the program is repeated, major improvements should be made. The author includes the survey questionnaire.

From the Paper:

"In an issue of Automotive News, they commented, there were many problems concerning the bill. Congress wrote a complicated bill with too many restrictions and complicated procedures. The bill appointed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which was poorly equipped and understaffed to do the job right. By the end of the last week, the National Automobile Dealers Administration conducted a national survey, which proved that clunker rebates had been paid on only 75.7 percent of the transactions submitted, although many dealerships had reported that the government auditors were already in their stores checking their books."
