I Hate My Car Contest is clunkers alternative
BURNSVILLE, Minn. (9/25/09)--US FCU and a Burnsville auto dealer have teamed up with an alternative to the expired "Cash for Clunkers" program. The "I Hate My Car Contest" extends beyond replacing only cars defined by the federal government as "clunkers." Earlier this month the Burnsville, Minn.-based credit union teamed up with Jeff Belzer's Chevrolet, Dodge, Kia dealership to launch the contest, which enables car owners to vent their frustration with their current vehicle in hopes of winning a new 2009 Chevy Aveo to replace their wretched ride. So far, in the first two weeks, the contest has generated 300 rants from disgruntled car owners and 2,700 visits to the contest's official website. US FCU and Belzer's also are offering discounts and I Hate My Car removable car clings so members can publicly profess their anti-love.
