Cars seg­ments depre­ci­at­ed at twice the rate of trucks last week. Vol­ume-weight­ed car val­ues decreased by 0.62%, which was high­er than the depre­ci­a­tion rate seen in the pre­vi­ous four weeks. Truck val­ues decreased by 0.27%, at the aver­age depre­ci­a­tion rate that’s been seen in the pre­vi­ous four weeks. Car depre­ci­a­tion had picked up slight­ly from the week before; trucks were stronger on the mar­ket, but two seg­ments saw a mar­ket cor­rec­tion.
