We were the first with a list of the ten most traded-in clunkers. Now here's the updated list of the most traded-in and purchased vehicles under the Cash For Clunkers program as of yesterday morning and 157,000 trade-in requests.

Click on the next button to see the ten most traded-in vehicles, ranked, under the CARS Act program. Then click next again for the ten most purchased vehicles. Not surprisingly, there's not a single car in the top ten list of trade-ins, while with the exception of one small SUV, the rest of the new car purchases were all cars. Wow, doesn't is sound like we're repeating ourselves a little.


The list has been updated from Monday to include different models (as opposed to four different Explorer model years). It is now also inclusive of data up to August 4th at 9:30 AM based on approximately 157,000 requests.
