Categories: New Cars

If you’re looking to buy a new car anytime soon, you’re in for a rude awakening … Finding a new car for sale right now in the United States is borderline impossible. Typically, manufacturers stock their dealers with a nearly 100 day supply of inventory. Right now, the industry is running at an 18 days supply. That being said, the total number of new cars in inventory ticked up 1.3% this month as compared to last.

Car Dealer Doc Fee by State 2021

    Its unfortunite that we have dealer auctions that only allow dealers to attend.
    Why is that ? Public auctions seem to have poor quality vehicles on which to bid
    and do skimpy tests on.
    The laws protect dealers but the public are at there own risk.
