    i think it is a great deal. I am been offered $19800+TTL on this car here in dallas texas.
  • "Cash for Clunkers" goes into effect on 7/24 and I am planning on taking delivery of my car after that date. As far as I know they will be deducting just the $3,500 from my purchase price of my Camry LE. Do you know if they are supposed to give "scrap value" in addition to $3,500?

    No, my Camry LE does not have leather seats or any other options except Carpet Trunk Mat Set which I didn't want but every car comes with it.

    I think it's either not both.
  • Actually you get both the rebate and the scrap value.

    "The program requires the scrapping of your eligible trade-in vehicle, and that the dealer disclose to you an estimate of the scrap value of your trade-in. The scrap value, however minimal, will be in addition to the rebate, and not in place of the rebate."

    http://www.cars.gov

    I am planning on trading a 20 year old MB 420 sel for Camry Hybrid. I am in the process of checking scrap value quotes. Just to make sure the dealer doesn't low ball the scrap value and pocket the difference.
  • Thank you for the information. Until I read your post I had not realized that the dealer is supposed to give me the scrap value. How are you checking for scrap value of your MB?

    As my understanding, they are suppose to reimburse scrap value of the car inaddition to $3500. They cant cheat you because the law requires them to disclose the scrap value as well. I dont think scrap value of mini van such as windstar ford would exceed $100, BUT in today's economy every penny matter. Following is what i found on cars.gov
    "The program requires the scrapping of your eligible trade-in vehicle, and that the dealer disclose to you an estimate of the scrap value of your trade-in. The scrap value, however minimal, will be in addition to the rebate, and not in place of the rebate."

    Also, if any of you figure out about the scrap value let me know how much maximum a person would get on scrap value??? Any ideas????
  • I used google and found a couple of sites. Also, looked up some numbers in my phone book. I haven't gotten any calls yet. Just did it this morning.

    I guess it depends on the vehicle, but used parts on the MB still have a lot of value. However, don't get me wrong, my expectations are around another $500 or so.

    Hi Mike,

    This sounds like a great price ! Is this price before or after the $500 "Loyalty Cash for current Toyota owner" ?

    Hello skboston

    Sent you email for information on 2010 Camry. Thanks
  • sam1985sam1985 Posts: 12
    hey did u figure out about the scrap value? One of the junkyard person told me it is $30 per ton and the van is about 1 ton so the value of the scrap will be about $100 because they will sell the parts. Any more details will be appreciated.
  • Never believe this Dealer.
  • sam1985sam1985 Posts: 12
    why what happen??? did you actually went to this dealer?? Detailss please!!! email me at riz_md@hotmail.com
  • Here is where I mistaken. When they said scrap, I thought the car would go to the junkyard, be stripped, and unused metal crush. Since my MB 420sel has never been in an accident, I figured they would even reuse the door panels, trunk, and engine and tranny. However, reading into the program, most of the vehicle has to be crushed including the engine and drivetrain. So the scrap value does in fact be minimal.

    As far as quotes,I person quoted me $1500. However, I believe he is under the assumption it can be parted out.

    Another person said to just scrap the car. Around $200 to $300.

    Hi guys,

    I just moved to MD a few days ago from MA. I plan to pick up a new car soon. But my insurance is still from MA. Do I need to change my insurance to MD in order to buy and register my car in MD ? Do I need to have full coverage to buy a new car? When should I change my driver license ?

    Thanks,
