Car Dealers Still Awaiting Reimbursement

Ad Feedback

The government's Cash for Clunkers  program is still leaving car dealers in the red.

"I wonder how long they'd wait if I owed them $3.2 million," said one South Carolina car dealer. "I think they'd probably be at my door - at least at my banker's door."

He is just one of many dealers across the country waiting to be reimbursed, CNN reports.

The National Automobile Dealers Association told its members in a recent newsletter that the clunkers program is flawed.

"The association is pushing the Department of Transportation to improve the claims review process, since currently a rejected clunker claim with a corrected error must still go through another complete review with a new examiner," the newsletter said. "Simply adding more personnel will not change the fundamental problems with the review process."
The government currently owes dealerships an estimated $2.8 billion. The Cash for Clunkers program originally promised reimbursement within ten days.
