February 2016 Guidelines

Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines: Wholesale used vehicle prices were flat in January, ticking down by just 0.1% compared to December. While the difference is small, January’s movement was slightly worse than the 0.3% rise averaged over the previous five years. As a result, NADA Used Car Guide’s seasonally adjusted used vehicle price index slipped as well, dipping by 0.3% month-over-month to 122.2. The index stood at 125.4 last January, 2.6% above this year’s level. Download the February Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines here.

Commercial Truck Guidelines: The volume of commercial trucks sold at the nation’s two largest no-reserve auction companies shook up the market last year, and the industry continues to adapt to this new normal. January was a very slow month for auction, wholesale, and retail sales, but February returned to high auction volume. We will continue to focus our analysis on auction trends going forward.  Download the February Commercial Truck Guidelines here.

 

January 2016 Guidelines

Used Car & Light-Duty Truck Guidelines: The wholesale market closed the year on something of a down note in December as prices of used vehicles up to eight years old fell by almost 2% over the month. The fall was much steeper than the 0.5% decline averaged for the period over the previous five years and marked the weakest result for the month since 2003. As a result, NADA Used Car Guide’s seasonally adjusted used vehicle price index fell by 1.6% from November to 122.4, and moved nearly 2% below last December’s level.
