Cash for Clunkers: Eligible New Cars by Make and Model

Thinking of trading in your "clunker" for some cash? Below is the list of new cars eligible for the program based on their combined gas mileage and price. How much you'll get for buying one depends on your trade-in's combined gas mileage. For one, the new car you buy must have a combined mpg rating that's at least 4 mpg higher than your trade-in's. If it's at least 4 mpg but less than 10 mpg higher, you'll get a $3,500 credit. If the new car's combined fuel economy bests your clunker's by 10 mpg or more, the credit is $4,500. These lists are based on federal rules and are not official lists. We'll update if and when we get more information from the Department of Transportation. Find out more in our Cash for Clunkers guide.
