Combined MPG: N/A
Trade-in value: $13,000
Verdict: Can't crush it
If there's a name that says "fuel sucking road hog" it's Hummer. But you won't see any Hummers getting crushed under the "cash for clunkers" program.

Under the rules of this program, the big Hummer H2 simply isn't eligible. That's because the H2 is classified as a heavy duty, or "Category 3" truck. Category 3 trucks don't get EPA fuel economy ratings, so to qualify they have to be from model year 2001 or earlier. The oldest H2s are from model year 2003.

Not that it really matters much. Hummers are simply worth way too much. The Hummer brand has its fans and as a result, Hummers actually hold their value better than most SUVs.

Even a relatively small and inexpensive Hummer H3, which would qualify based on its fuel economy, is worth at least twice as much as the $4,500 rebate that an owner could get for crushing it.
