Did you know that Uncle Sam will help you buy a Mercedes? Its true. But it has to be a certain diesel model. There are federal tax credits for lean burn diesel cars.
|2007 Merccedes E350|
Here is a sample of the cars that the government will help you buy:
2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 BlueTEC = $1,550
2010–11 Mercedes-Benz GL 350 BlueTEC = $1,800
2010–11 Mercedes-Benz R 350 BlueTEC = $1,550
Unfortunately thats all the money you can get from the federal treasury. You'll have to find the other $50,000 - $60,000 on your own. If you don't have $50,000 lying around you could always go for a VW Golf TDI which qualifies for $850 credit and has a sticker price of $22,810. The VW Golf TDI gets 30 MPG city / 41 MPG highway.
