I stripped a 1995 Q45 like a chop shop and still got my $4500 from the dealer

Re: Did anyone trade in their gas guzzler for a cube?

I did the cash for clunkers deal with my 1990 Volvo Wagon. It got 22 mpg but the government rated it at 18 mpg combined for the program. The Volvo had over 220,000 miles on it. Still ran good but leaked and burned oil, A/C didn't work, various power window switches didn't work, sunroof wouldn't close if you opened it without helping it, rear wiper didn't work, heater fan made a horrible screeching noise unless it was on defrost, transmission would sometimes jump out of overdrive, chewed through brakes (four disc brakes with rotors that can't be turned, just replaced, about an $800 dollar job each time) - just a lot of little problems.

It might have made it to 300,000 or something real expensive could have happened soon, who knows? I figured I should jump at the chance to get $3500 for it when nice ones with no problems go for $1500 tops.

I have a really long commute so I hope to save about $100 per month on gas. And my three kids love it.

Both my cars get/got 30+ MPG, so I really did not move up with the Cube. In fact, the Saturn wagon gets about 38 on the interstate... this is with 170,000 miles and much neglect from the previous owners! American cars really amaze me.

I traded no vehicles in and I now get worse gas millage but I like the style of the Cube and I trade up between vehicles during the week.

I traded in an '02 Mazda Tribute. On a good day, she was getting close to 15-16 mpg.

I traded a 2003 Ford Crown Vic LX in for a Cube and got the max CARS rebate. The Cube was one of only 2 vehicles I found that had enough room to fit my recumbent bicycle and give the max CAR Rebate. The other was a Rio Soul, not even close on quality and more expensive.

I traded in a 1988 Ford Ranger via Cash for Clunkers. I have several vehicles and it wasn't driven often lately. My daily driver had been an Isuzu VehiCross that got 13-14 MPG and now I am driving the Cube and the VehiCross is not getting driven often.

I had a 98 Dodge Conversion Van. With a good wind I might have gotten 14mpg. It was the family van. We took many trips from Boston to Orlando in it. Took me 2 days to strip the interior down. But do to family & lifestyle changes I "clunked" it for a shiny new Super Black SL...
