Top Selling Metro UV Markets for Independents and Franchised Dealers


Auto Remarketing’s “Best in Pre-Owned Per­for­mance” spe­cial sec­tion fea­tured data from CNW Research based on 2012 sales. A few of the charts showed the top sell­ing US mar­kets for used vehi­cles. Over­all, the top five des­ig­nated mar­ket areas (DMAs) last year were New York, Los Ange­les, Chicago, San Fran­cisco, and Dallas-Ft. Worth.

For inde­pen­dent dealer used vehi­cle sales, New York had a dom­i­nat­ing lead; New York saw 1,251,894 units sold last year by inde­pen­dent deal­ers. That was fol­lowed by Los Ange­les at 848,787 and San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose at 479,666. That was flipped over for fran­chised deal­ers, where Los Ange­les took the lead at 1,025,646 used units sold, fol­lowed by New York at 744,795, and San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose at 614,377.
