Local Dealers Finish “Clunkers” Program

The wild ride of “Cash for Clunkers” appears to be coming to an end, following President Obama’s announcement that the federal rebate program would conclude on Monday. In Knoxville, Steve Bunch – sales manager at Devore Motors – says the program saw steady participation from consumers from its inception; while Chuck Vanderwaal, President of Ulrich Motor Company in Pella, says his office has been busy the last several days finalizing sales as consumers try to get in before the deadline. Vanderwaal adds that setting an earlier closing date is the best way to end the program because it ensures that all parties involved get the deal they expected.
