REPORT: EPA performs 11th-hour refresh that makes some cars ineligible for Cash for Clunkers
Owners of certain 1993 Toyota Camry V6 wagons, 1992 Saab 900S hatchbacks (a turbo is shown), and 1988 Toyota 4Runner 2.4-liter models voiced their complains to Edmunds.com, frustrated that their eligible EPA 18 mpg combined ratings had been bumped to ineligible EPA 19 mpg combined ratings as the agency "refreshed" some of its numbers at the last minute. While few of us would complain about a free 5 percent gain in gas mileage, when it unexpectedly robs vehicle owners upwards of $4,500 on a federal incentive program, well, we'd be a bit miffed too, especially as there has been no official announcement as to why the changes have taken place.
