Each Saturday we review our server logs to determine the most popular terms typed in on our used car search engine. Used SUVs haven't exactly set the server on fire like they did last month but they are still in demand. People get a lot more specific this month, maybe they are ready to buy? The top ten used car terms this month are:
Used car lots
Cheap used vans
Nissan used cars
Used Yukon Denali XL
Used cars under 12000
Used Honda Accord coupe for sale
Used Suburbans for sale
Used Cars - The Winner
Last month cheap used trucks was the number one search term, this month it turned into used trucks and dropped to second. In its place, used cars has taken over. Possibly a reaction to the rising prices at the pumps? A trend to keep watch on.
Used Trucks - Runner Up
Despite the rise in fuel prices and interest in more efficent vehicles, the swing towards spring and slowly rebounding economy seems to have kept many in the mood for work which means more interest in used trucks. While we didn't see the interest we saw last month in cheap used pickups, interest should remain high at least till next month. Rising summer fuel cost may start to put the breaks on afterward however.
What is in Demand at Used Car Lots
Local car dealerships are seeing in increase in demand not just for used pickups but cheap used vans as well. Seems many professionals who have held off upgrading their ride are kicking tires as a new season of work is about to begin. It's all good news to many local used car lots but all the added attention means there will be fewer and fewer used cars under 12000. The uptick in buying means that finding great deals could be more difficult to locate easily especially if you are in the market for professional type vehicles. Using a good used car search engine could mean the difference between paying to much, or finding a great deal quickly.
Non commercial shoppers are still wrestling with choice in the face of adverse fuel cost. Nissan used cars rose in popularity, as did other popular preowned vehicle searches like used Honda Accord coupe for sale which isn't to much of a suprise given their lower prices and cost to own compared to larger vehicles. But it's the amount of demand still for SUVs like a used Yukon Denali XL or the always popular used Suburbans for sale. One might not think there would still be so much momentium for these large vehicles, but the interest just proves that despite the cost there continues to be a market for these extra large models. And of course not to be lost in this months top 10, used BMW cars are still in demand no matter the market or economy. They maybe used but they're still luxury. Check back next week as we break down what cities are the hot used car buying locations.
