The Act established, in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a voluntary program to be known as the “Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save Program” to provide electronic vouchers to offset part of the purchase price or lease price of a new fuel-efficient vehicle upon the surrender of an eligible trade-in vehicle to a dealer participating in the program.3 The vouchers may be used to offset the purchase price or lease price by $3,500 or $4,500.4
