Car sales continue to grow as the year moves on, particularly for the Big Three as they reported excellent sales figures for November. The key is that the economy in the US is improving and that’s having an impact on car sales. Another important factor involves the tighter supply of used cars in this country and other countries as well.
With the economic crisis, car sales plunged for several years. With fewer new cars purchased in beginning in the fall of 2008, through 2009 and into 2010, that affects the number of used cars available now. The result is a somewhat altered car market as used cars are going for higher prices. But that also makes it easier to trade in your used car, and that then accelerates new car purchases.
So if you’re looking for a used car, whether in the United State or in other countries, you have to be even more committed to doing research before you buy a car in order to get the best deal. Car dealers aren’t as desperate to move used cars given the tighter supply and greater demand, so you have to get more information about used car prices as you do your search. You should definitely consider a wide variety of models in your category as well to give you the best chance of getting a good price. Now, if you’re in the UL and you’re absolutely committed to buying a used Vauxhall Astra, then that’s what you should search. Hopefully you’re a little more flexible. People who like a Ford Focus should also think about a Mazda or maybe a Chevy. Keep an open mind and you’ll get a better price, but either way, make sure you do your research.
