May New-Car Sales Boost Used-Car Inventory, Dropping Used-Car Prices 7% to $28,861, According to Cars Commerce May Industry Insights Report

On Average, Used Cars Cost About $20,000 Less Than New Vehicles ? Largest Price Gap Since 2018

CHICAGO, June 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Cars.com Inc. (NYSE: CARS) (d/b/a "Cars Commerce Inc."), an audience-driven technology company empowering the automotive industry, today launched its May Industry Insights Report. Crafted by an expert team of Cars Commerce data analysts, the report provides macro and micro automotive market insights by analyzing supply, demand, pricing and consumer behavior data from across the company's platform, including Cars.com®, Dealer Inspire and AccuTrade.

"The rise in new-car sales, especially during seasonal promotions like Memorial Day, boosts the used-car market. More new-car inventory means more new-car sales, which means more trade-ins, increasing used-car inventory and bringing prices down ? and that's just what we're seeing this month," said Rebecca Lindland, senior director of industry data and insights at Cars Commerce. "On average, used cars are selling slightly slower now than last year, when the market was quite lean. Prices are still elevated for new and used vehicles, but today, shoppers have more inventory, more choices and more time to find the vehicle that fits their budget and lifestyle."
