The Transportation Department is tripling the number of workers processing Cash for Clunkers transactions.
There had only been 350 people working on the program. But now there will be about 1,000 people.
Many car dealers have complained that the government has been extremely slow in reimbursing them for the car incentives of up to $4,500 a vehicle.
"If they reject it, we go to the back of the line and have to start over again," said Hugh Highsmith of Fairway Ford. "So we really have no idea what the time table is. We don't know if our paperwork is correct, so we really don't know where we stand."
"The original $1 billion was supposed to generate 250,000 sales, and initially they had 225 people processing those claims," he added.
"I think we had an idea just in previous dealings with the government that it wouldn't be as smooth as indicated," said Jason Wallace of Bob King Voltswagen.
The government still owes some car dealerships across the country hundreds of thousands of dollars in reimbursments.
