You may already know that the government’s CARS program (aka Cash for Clunkers) ends tonight at 8pm ET. Only 7% of all rebate requests have been honored, and dealers have until tonight to submit their transactions. Good luck. What you see above is essentially what every dealer in America sees today when they sign-in to www.cars.gov/dealersupport and click “Submit Transaction”. The massive deluge of traffic has rendered the site useless. This is the same problem experienced immediately following the launch in July. Only this time, there probably won’t be an extension and the dealers won’t be reimbursed. Those that do make it through can expect the site to crash repeatedly while attempting to upload the numerous documents required to received payment. Seriously guys, fuck you.
[UPDATE!] The NADA has reached out to dealers to get some feedback and lobby for an extension. The result? An extra 15 hours! Thanks, assholes!
