Harsh win­ter weath­er didn’t push used vehi­cle prices off their typ­i­cal Jan­u­ary pat­tern; prices were essen­tial­ly flat at just 0.1% rel­a­tive to Decem­ber. In fact, it was the third high­est fig­ure ever record­ed in the NADA’s sea­son­al­ly adjust­ed used vehi­cle price index. It was unchanged in Jan­u­ary at 124.6, which tied with two oth­er months (August 2013 and Decem­ber 2013) as the third high­est fig­ure ever record­ed in the NADA index.
