    granger motors specials?

    i just heard an ad on the radio for granger motors. it said that if you have an old car to trade in that right now you can get $9000 trade in on a new car. Also, if you dont have a car to trade in, that you can still get $4500 towards a new car. has anyone heard this ad? i went to their horrible website and wasn't able to find anything about it.

    i dont have a car to trade in right now, so the $4500 sounds kinda nice. and luckily they sell ford, otherwise i wouldn't even bother.

    Chrysler announced that they are matching Cash for Clunkers, so you can get up to $9000 off a new car

    Re: granger motors specials?

    My understanding is that for the $9,000 you have to be trading in an eligible "clunker", and you have to be purchasing a vehicle that currently has a $4,500 rebate on it. That's your $9,000. You're probably going to have to look at something pushing $50,000 before you'll find a $4,500 rebate.

    hmmmm, i must have heard it wrong then. i swear they said $9000 for the clunker deal, or $4500 even if you dont have a trade in.

    i'm still ******, about 1 year ago some ******* in his huge tahoo slammed into the back of me and totaled my crap car that would still be running now that i could have traded in.

    Re: granger motors specials?

    It's a bit deceiving. It's really just a roundabout way of saying, again, if I understand it correctly, that Chrysler is offering rebates of up to $4,500 on certain vehicles. I could see something like an Aspen that isn't selling and is at the top end of Chrysler's price range having a $4,500 rebate. A Calibur, not so much. Maybe someone else has more specifics.

    No, there are cars eligible for both that are under $50k...in fact, there has to be, because I am pretty sure the cash for clunkers has a limit of like $45k before you become ineligible for that $4,500.

    .

    As a side note, it's complete joke how this cash for clunkers is being used considering that Chrysler doesn't currently have ANY vehicles that get good gas mileage.

    Aspen 16mpg
    Sebring 24
    PT cruiser 23
    Town Country 20


    The Caliber is the best in their lineup and it gets 27mpg. What a joke.
