    I recently bought a new car. While doing my research and considering a used car instead, the consequence of the above is still being felt. As a result of this program, the used-car market was so distorted by this action that prices for used cars are still artificially inflated, even years after the fact. The issue is, the cars that were trade in (many which were VERY good cars) were intentionally and systemically destroyed instead of being allowed as low-cost alternatives onto the open market.

    My wife and I have both received letters from the local dealer we bought our cars from, stating that there are so few good used cars that they will give us top dollar for ours! Thanks Obama!
