Most Desired Vehicle in Cash for Clunkers: Ford Escape

By Ford Social Member

While the government shows some other model as edging out the Ford Focus as the number one vehicle purchased under the Cash for Clunkers program, and found different results altogether.

According to CNN Money, the government considers different powertrains as unique models. This would divide the Ford Escape into six separate models with all of the various drivetrain combinations of two-wheel drive, four-wheel drive and hybrid.

So, according to, the most-purchased vehicles under the Cash for Clunkers program, are:

1 Ford Escape

2 Ford Focus

3 Jeep Patriot

4 Dodge Caliber

5 Ford F-150

6 Honda Civic

7 Chevrolet Silverado

8 Chevrolet Cobalt

9 Toyota Corolla

10 Ford Fusion

The Senate voted on Friday to provide an additional $2 billion into the Cash for Clunkers program to extend the popular program.

the letfordrecycleyourride web site makes it almost impossible to find out the mileage for the new Fushion Hybrid... are you trying to steer people to other cars since you have so few in stock? I would think you would be going after the Prius big time...

I almost bought a Fushion Hybrid, but one showstopper: no fold down seats. Once you have had them, you can't go back to a car that doesn't have fold down seats.

It is amazing how this website takes you in circles. You cannot look up the price of a vehicle you cannot check what is on the lot of the local dealer---A fifth grader could build a better website.

Are your cars as poorly built as your website? Make it simple. I am looking for a car do not make me put my name and address in 3 times and then not give me anything.

This website is just as bad as Honda and Subaru.

You flunked my basic test. Can I get any information about your cars from your website.---no
