Luxury car makers are hoping to shift their loyal customers back to new car purchases with aggressive lease deals and low interest rates however…
As many people revisit their personal economy, replacing an aging Beemer with a slightly used luxury car keeps up appearances without showing off to price sensitive clients and employees.
A two or three year old used car purchase may look like it’s been in the garage all the time, when in fact the deal was too good to pass up when costs of repair on an old car no longer make sense.
Luxury name plates Porsche and Jaguar are benefiting from this mode of thinking, along with other high-line sedans: BMW, Mercedes and Lexus.
The top models across the board for internet web searches in the pre-owned market this past month, according to the latest report from NADA Used Car Guide, are the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Nissan Altima, respectively.
These are the same models that led the search list last year November and the past few months of 2012.
Following the No. 3 Altima in the fourth-place spot last month was the Honda Accord sedan. Coming in at No. 5 was the Toyota Camry, followed by the Chevrolet Impala in sixth and the Ram 1500 at No. 7.
The top 10 included the Ford Mustang, Toyota Corolla and BMW 3 Series.
