As CARS Program Ends Maryland and Delaware Car Dealer Prepares for the Weekend
The Car Allowance Rebate System is about to be over as word was recently released from the government that the CARS program (previously cash for clunkers) will end on August 24th at 8pm. The program had recently received an additional $2billion to continue awarding vouchers to those who qualify for this eco-friendly solution to our economic crisis. Due to the severe popularity of this program 3 billion dollars ran out in about 1 month. Dealerships like Preston Automotive Group in Maryland are ready for a huge weekend under the program.
The Cars program was originally scheduled to last until November 1st. However since then an additional 2 billion dollars was added to the program and even then the program was exhausted in a matter of weeks. U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced yesterday (August 21, 2009) that after a wildly successful run, the cash for clunkers program will come to a close on Monday, August 24th at 8 p.m. EST.
Currently Preston Automotive Group in Maryland has done 240 deals and plans to do an additional 60 deals this weekend before the program ends. Preston Automotive Group represents some of the industry’s leading manufacturers such as Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Hyundai, Nissan, Mazda, Suzuki and Chevrolet. The market on the eastern shore of Maryland and Delaware is the perfect place for the Cash for Clunkers/ CARS Program. Due to the abundance of farming and other labor intensive industries, many clunkers can be found that meet all CARS program requirements. Preston Automotive feels that reaching 300 by the end of the weekend will be easy.
The large dealership network serving Maryland, Delaware and Virginia has taken full advantage of the program, dedicating countless hours and even an entire building reserved as their CARS information center. David Wilson Jr., Vice President of Preston Automotive Group, stated, “Thanks to great planning along with some risk we have managed to increase our sales easily, due to the program ending this Monday we have increased sales personnel and CARS personnel to account for the rush we are expecting this weekend. We are also open this Sunday to help all the people of Delmarva take advantage of the CARS Program.”
The great success of the program has increased sales for all car dealers across the United States. Though there have been downfalls to the program, there is no doubt that the program has sparked the automotive industry and has made consumers gain confidence in buying an automobile despite the current economy. This historic program may never happen again, dealers are making the most out of it while they can.
