Not true. I bought my truck last year after the Democratic Congress reinstated the big tax break for buying a heavy SUV used for work.

I would be pi**ed beyond belief if I was a car dealer. All that money spent on advertising???? This is utterly ridiculous.

First auto dealers live in fear of having their products pulled. Auto dealers have put their trust in the gov and purchased millions in advertising. I don't even know what to say...

Germany can do it right and America craps in it's pants.

That's what car dealers get for trusting the gubmint to keep its promise.

It's suspended because of the backlog of government paperwork. It could be months before the government figures out how many applied.

Wasn't this only going to be available only until the money ran out anyway? What's the problem? It looks like it did exactly what they wanted it to do.
