The larg­er sup­ply of used vehi­cles in the mar­ket­place hasn’t yet been enough to off­set prices, which gen­er­at­ed record high aver­age used vehi­cle val­ues. Deal­ers saw an aver­age of $16,800 in used vehi­cle sales last year ver­sus $15,900 in 2013. Cer­ti­fied pre-owned (CPO) vehi­cles had a very strong year – 20.8% of used cars sold at fran­chised deal­er­ships, the high­est per­cent­age since CPO pro­grams were intro­duced.
