Cash for Clunkers Hurts Auto Repair Shops

Sing Tao Daily, news, Posted: Aug 17, 2009

SAN GABRIEL, Calif. This summer, many car buyers are finding themselves benefiting from the Cash for Clunkers, program but Chinese-American auto repair shops said they are suffering from it. During an interview with Sing Tao Daily, auto shop owner Lee said that his business has decreased by 70 percent compared to last summer. Lee said that although average customers cut back spending on auto repairs since the economic downtown began, his business remained steady with those who decided to fix their old cars instead of buying new ones. However, after the federal Cash for Clunkers program was promoted, lots of these customers turned to car dealers who are offering great discounts.
