Why do six months of price drops make us nervous Because there are signs the decline may end soon. The wholesale prices dealers pay for used cars at auction have started rising. The nationwide inventory of used cars for sale is shrinking.
Still, the new car inventory may not return to normal once it recovers. Automakers and dealer groups learned that keeping the supply of cars low allows them to charge more for cars. The days of dealer stockpiles and hefty discounts may not fully return.
A recent analysis finds that sales of cars priced at $25,000 or less have fallen by 78% in just five years. Five years ago, automakers offered 36 different new models in that price range. This year, they offer just 10 new models.
If you hope to find an older vehicle and your budget is less than $15,000, these vehicles remain in short supply. More would-be new car shoppers started buying up the available used cars. So, the shortage of lower-priced cars is partly due to a lack of inventory.
Americans are holding onto their cars longer than ever. The average car on American roads is now 12.2 years old. Automakers also produced fewer cars for several years after the 2008 recession. That leaves fewer higher-mileage, older used vehicles available to sell.
With most automakers now building such durable cars, they compete by adding more high-tech features. Features like adaptive cruise control and Apple CarPlay are now more common than ever on entry-level vehicles. Read on to see our tips on buying a car below.

If the purchaser of a motor vehicle trades in a vehicle as part of the transaction, the purchaser can deduct the value of the traded vehicle from the selling price. To be eligible, the trade-in must be taken as part of the same sales transaction and transferred directly to the seller. The tax is computed on the remaining selling price for the purchased vehicle.
The purchaser can take this deduction only by trading in a motor vehicle. Any other property, such as a boat, airplane, livestock, etc., that a seller takes in trade cannot be deducted from the selling price for motor vehicle tax purposes.
Be aware that when calculating motor vehicle tax due in a private-party transaction, where a trade-in is involved, standard presumptive value (SPV) procedures may apply to determine the taxable value of the selling vehicle but do not apply in determining the value of the trade-in vehicle.
When a purchaser trades in a motor vehicle on the purchase of two or more motor vehicles from the same seller and the trade-in motor vehicle is greater in value than any single price of a motor vehicle being purchased, the trade-in value may be split among the purchases to allow full credit for the trade-in.
The seller must show the trade-in description on each Form 130-U (PDF) and reference the forms to each other to clarify the transactions. The seller must reference the tax receipts in the same manner.
If Sally trades her $30,000 motor vehicle in a private-party transaction for a vehicle worth $20,000. Sally owes no motor vehicle tax because a trade-down has occurred. The other party has traded up and must pay motor vehicle tax on the $10,000 difference.
If a borrower/purchaser sells the motor vehicle to the lender (option three) at the conclusion of a finance agreement, the borrower/purchaser cannot use that motor vehicle as a trade-in deduction in the purchase transaction of another motor vehicle. The borrower/purchaser is not directly trading the original motor vehicle for the purchase of a new motor vehicle to the new motor vehicle seller. If the seller of the new motor vehicle purchases the original motor vehicle from the lender, a separate transaction has occurred, and that does not count towards a trade-in tax deduction. 59ce067264
