Each year, the used car market produces a list of the best-used cars to purchase. Will it be the Honda Civic or the Toyota Corolla that remains at the top of the most sought cars? Used car sales in 2020 have shaken the market to its core.
The COVID-19 crisis has impacted the car industry, both the sale of new and used vehicles. This year, it’s not about the hunt for the car that’s on top of the industry-best list. This year, buyers hunt for the vehicle that fits their needs and is available in their region.
We recently have written blogs about finding your ideal car, financing, and maintaining your vehicle in 2020. As we are writing this blog, HiLo Auto Sales carries a selection of used vehicles in our Maryland locations. Last week, we wrote about test driving your next car.
We are ready to help you find your next car, but what causes the shortage in used vehicles in the United States?
Used car availability is directly tied to the COVID-19 crisis. We have all watched the pandemic domino effect.
New car sales have been paused due to a lack of inventory. As new automobile factories were closed due to COVID, orders piled up. Buyers continued to drive their used cars while waiting to take delivery of their next vehicle. Trade-ins dropped.
Meanwhile, more Americans discovered the value of purchasing a used car. Stimulus checks are often used to buy while some buyers became nervous about buying a new car. In 2020, the average price of a new car is over $35,000. While interest rates are low, buyers are still nervous about making a large purchase that begins to depreciate as soon as you drive it off the lot.
Sales of used cars surged in this environment, and it is also an ideal time to sell your used car truck or SUV.
After reading about the impact of COVID-19 on the used car market, you may be thinking that it is an excellent time to sell a used car that you do not need. Correct! It is a great time to sell.
