Cash For Clunkers

I don't think to buy a new car but this program, Car Allowance Rebate System - aka "Cash for Clunkers", from U.S. government sounds good to me. My wife mentioned it during our luch. After lunch, I googled to find more info before head out to car dealers. I can get a voucher of up to $4,500 to trade in my vehicle for new ones that get better mileage.
