Used vehi­cle val­ues are see­ing depre­ci­a­tion pick up steam dur­ing the sum­mer sea­son, with the excep­tion of Pre­mi­um Sporty Cars. Cars have seen accel­er­at­ed depre­ci­a­tion since the begin­ning of May; trucks con­tin­ue going against the grain by break­ing sea­son­al pat­terns and hold­ing strong in the ear­ly sum­mer weeks. Soft­ness in the car mar­ket is expect­ed dur­ing sum­mer months as buy­ers are push­ing prices down on vol­ume-heavy car seg­ments.
