AirCheck Texas™ Program Has Been Putting Texans Behind the Wheel of Cleaner Cars for 50 Years

Sam Pack's Five Star Ford in Lewisville is a Proud Program Participant

While the movement towards environmental awareness and improved means of sustainability certainly seems to have really taken root in the past decade in particular, programs such as the AirCheckTexas™ Drive a Clean Machine Program have been actively working to give Texans the opportunity to contribute to the regional air quality solution for fifty years. The program has helped, and continues to help thousands of qualifying Texas motorists repair or replace their high-polluting vehicles.

What is AirCheck Texas™ Drive a Clean Machine Program?

We all know that vehicles contribute significantly to air pollution, particularly older vehicles or those requiring repairs in order to meet current emissions inspections. AirCheck Texas receives funding from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and its aim is to help qualifying participants repair or replace their vehicles, resulting in cleaner air for everyone.

Who qualifies and how do I apply for car repair or replacement assistance?

Applicants will have to meet certain criteria including annual household income requirements. Further, if your car is registered in Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, or Tarrant County and your vehicle has failed the state emissions inspection within the past 30 days, you may be eligible for a repair voucher valued at up to $600 toward emissions repair assistance. You may even be eligible for upwards of $3,500 towards a qualifying replacement vehicle. We strongly recommend the Ford C Max Hybrid, Ford Focus Electric, or Ford Fusion Hybrid models for those looking to help to their part to save our environment.

Applying is relatively quick and quite simple: just go to the AirCheck Texas site, print an application, complete all sections, and mail it to AirCheckTexas Program PO Box 5888 Arlington, TX or fax it to (817) 608-2315. You will then be notified via mail as to whether or not you have been approved. With your approval letter comes your voucher, as well as a list of participating dealers.

What comes next?

Once you have received your voucher qualifying you either for repair or replacement assistance, you have 30 days to come into a qualifying dealership, such as Sam Pack's Five Star Ford of Lewisville to redeem it.
