In this week’s report, the Black Book editorial team reports on data trends straight from the auction lanes that may be showing signs of a tired tax season. Comments from the lanes and data show that used vehicle inventories have been replenished, and remarketers are seeing signs of a buyer slowdown across many car segments in particular.
Car segments overall were relatively unchanged from the previous week, with strength coming from the Compact Cars (+0.17%), Full-Size Cars (+0.14%), and Entry Mid-Size Cars (+0.12%). Trucks overall fared a little better at +0.31%, led by Compact SUVs (+1.17%) and Mid-Size SUVs (+0.65%).
“The wholesale market remains strong, especially for trucks; however, buyers are starting to show resistance as more no-sales are being reported all across the country,” said Anil Goyal, Vice President of Automotive Valuation and Analytics.
