'Cash for Clunkers' had mixed results in California's capital

In the Sacramento region, "cash for clunkers" translated into "trade that old domestic car for a foreign brand." The federal program aimed at improving air quality while benefiting U.S. automakers largely missed at least one of its marks locally. Eight of the 10 most popular local trade-ins during Cash for Clunkers were built by U.S. automakers while all of the 10 most popular vehicles purchased locally with vouchers from the program were built by Japanese or Korean outfits.
