February's 20-Year Streak of Increased Used Vehicle Prices Ends

MCLEAN, Va., March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wholesale used vehicle prices generally rise in February as dealers prepare for increased spring consumer demand. In fact, up to this year, prices had moved higher in February for twenty years straight. The streak came to an end last month, however, as wholesale prices of vehicles up to eight years in age fell by nearly 1 percent from January.
In their March Guidelines report covering the U.S. used vehicle market, analysts at NADA Used Car Guide note above average increases in late auction volume likely played a role in February's depressed outcome. Auction volume of 2014 and 2015 models increased by an average of roughly 20 percent from January to February.
