Don’t Buy a Car Now! Here’s Why It’s One of the Worst Times in Decades

  • 📈 Hold onto your wallets, Street Drifters! Vehicle prices are soaring higher than ever since 2020, as per Bureau of Labor Statistics data.
  • 🆙 New or used, it doesn’t matter—prices are way above 2019 levels, and we’re feeling the burn in our pockets.
  • 📉 Good news? Inflation for used cars is on the decline since December 2022, but we’ve still got a long road to 2019 prices. New car prices, however, remain sky-high.
  • 💰 In the past five years, new car transaction prices jumped nearly $12,000, while used car prices are nearly $9,000 higher than in February 2018.
  • ⏰ Flashback to the 1970s and 80s, the last time we saw price hikes like these bad boys.
  • 🎢 Buckle up! The used car market’s more volatile than ever, skyrocketing by 45% in just 12 months.
  • 🚙💨 Consumers are shifting gears, leaning towards larger and pricier pickup trucks and SUVs.
  • 💸 New car buyers ain’t playing, opting for higher-end models with all the bells and whistles, driving up those prices even more.
  • 🏭 Automakers are fueling the fire, producing more expensive cars and creating incentives for higher prices.
  • 🚗💨 The decline in leasing trade-ins and rental car companies battling consumers for limited 3-5-year-old vehicles also adds fuel to the used market fire.
