Late-model used-car prices saw a very slight decline in March, with the average asking price in Cars.com vehicle listings down $31 to $22,619. Prices for 2010 to 2012 used cars are down just $43 from the beginning of the year, or less than 1%.
Among the top 10 cars with the biggest price swings, March was a month of price corrections. After experiencing the biggest price gains in February, the BMW X5 and Subaru Impreza had the largest price declines in March. X5 prices were down 9% to $44,901 while Impreza prices fell 6% to $21,918. The decreases erased all of the prior month's gains for these models — and then some. Perhaps these all-wheel-drive vehicles were priced higher for winter.
