I have been getting emails from consumers that are claiming that the EPA MPG rating are changing on www.fueleconomy.gov, day to day. For some, this meant that their car now qualifies. For others, their car now was disqualified.
This is SCARY.
I strongly encourage all dealers to print screen the fueleconomy.gov website when you look-up a trade-in and date and time stamp the print-out. You do not want to be in the middle of a data change that would disqualify a trade that you took in that once qualified.
Hopefully the NHTSA will address this matter this week on their dealer conference call. I hope someone brings this up.
