OKLAHOMA CITY -- NEWS 9's Consumer Watch team is breaking down the way the government new program Cash for Clunkers works.

The program allows you to trade in your fuel inefficient vehicle for one that gets better gas mileage. It can get you up to $4,500 dollars towards the purchase, but not everyone qualifies or should take the cash.

But Consumer Watch found there are instances where you're better off trading in and declining the Cash for Clunkers money.

Learn more about the Cash for Clunkers program.
