I would demand to get a car for free under those circumstances.

How about everyone filing a tax return next April gets automatically entered in a lottery? One chance in 150 to win a new car!

Wikipedia says there's 138 million US taxpayers.
The average price of a new car sold in the US is $28,400.
$25,000,000,000 would pay for 880,000 cars at retail cost.

Or, to reduce the national consumption of gasoline, only give out fuel-efficient subcompacts, and increase the odds to 1 in 70.
