Dealers are stocking up on late-model used cars because once they get a potential buyer on the lot they want to make sure that they have some that the customer will be attracted to. However this high demand for decent used cars and low supply, because of the ones being crushed under the clunkers program, has driven up the price of used cars.
Decreasing the supply of used cars has also driven up the price of customer’s trade-ins. Therefore it is beneficial to buy now even if your car does not qualify as a clunker to get all you can out of your trade.
Preston Autoplex Used Car and Truck is one of many dealers who are reaping the benefits of the upswing in used car sales.
