Did not get the full story, tonights news, But looks like some government Dipstick has decided to earn his pay and bought this subject up again!! old vehicles off ! new ones in!, and you will get a BIG discount off a newie if you buy one. Thats fine for those that can afford it!!, what about the rest of the population??. Wonder if you would get booked if one was to wander up the freeway with a horse and cart??.



Cheers Axle.

Hi Axle,
See my response in post 67112

As far as I can see the data is slewed, it doesn't take into account the amount of raw materials, energy and pollution required to replace a car every 4 years versus keeping one for say 12 years or so.

Spot on Geoff,
Recycle, Is better than all the resources need to produce new.

Now this is just a thought.
Some people are going to think, Hey, 3k for my old s^%t box. I'll put that on a brand new car. I really dont have the money so I'll go to the bank and Borrow some more. Didn't this get the world into the poo that it is now?

Dunworkin, you've hit the nail on the head as well.

I guess it's a good thing Rudd is overseas atm , otherwise he'd be on the bandwagon too.

No Big deal - the current Nissan Patrol still has the same big torquey 6 and same live axles as it did almost ten years ago , wouldn't mine getting the same car again at the right price - espically if petrol cost the same as it did ten years ago.

Hi Robin, You have a point there!, But will the latest petrol nissan run on the cheap fuel or the other, There is a reasonable price difference between the two. The right price is critical if its going to be worth Ziltch. in ten years....lol.

Hi
The correct story is that the MOTOR TRADES ASSOCIATION spokesman was suggesting that the gov give anyone with a 10yr old car $3000 so THEY can stay in business selling you cars that you don't want / need. OF course so it can save jobs not their business.
Who would gain the most from this , those with the money to get a new car. Again the rich get the best deal while the poor get St#*#ed.

Yup, Axle.

The whole idea of the Japanese destruction of perfectly servicable motor vehicles is primarily to shore up an economy in near terminal decline.
Bank "cash" rates at 0% were not enough of a stimulus and it looked for a while as if Japan was about to implode on itself.
Just like the USA.

The Japanese industrialists and government economists were/are not in the least concerned about the impact of their policies on the state of the environment.

"Wonder if you would get booked if one was to wander up the freeway with a horse and cart??. "

- it wouldn't help the environment !

All the cattle, sheep and horses in Australia produce more greenhouses gases than ALL road vehicles in Australia !

I've had some visitors from Germany the last few days- and they were saying they have that scheme over there...
The Government gives (say) $3000 to buy a new car-
then the Government gets $4000 in taxes, dutys etc on the new car sale!!!!

Kind clashes with the green image the govt wants to portray. What a waste of resources making new cars is, when there is nothing wrong with most cars 10 years old.

Axle what I don't get is,
Why do the car manufacturers believe they are entitled to government hand outs.
How many people do they employ directly and indirectly?
100 000, 250 000 ?(I have no idea) to warrant such generosity from the tax payer.

The reason I ask is, the tourism industry asked last year for financial assistants to help promote Australia, and local businesses within their industry, and Rudd dismissed it very quickly.
How many people/communities rely on the tourist dollar compared to the car industry?

Just curious, to me it does not add up. I've only ever owned one car that was less then ten years old, and it was 9 years old when I bought it. Sold it two years later and lost $12K on it. Because it was a heap of crap VS Dunny door.

I know I'll never buy a new car, can't justify the expense or depreciation,.

I stand corrected.
Yesterday 31/03/09 Martin Ferguson, Minister for Resources and Energy; Minister for Tourism has come out and told people that have holidays up their sleeves ( on Avg 4 weeks) to take them and travel Australia to help boast the regional economy. About time the Feral Government woke up to the fact that there are a lot of people employed directly and in directly in the Tourism Industry.
