This is going to become such a mess. Our local Hyundai dealers are considering a class action lawsuit against the government. One dealership in particular, Dennis Hyundai, is owed 1.5 million dollars by the government.

Herrenstein Hyundai has over 120 cars they haven't killed or been paid for, and it's going to become a catch 22-they aren't going to get paid until they kill the cars, and they aren't going to kill the cars until they get paid.

At $4500 a car, how many new Hyundai trades is THAT?
