    "...the used car market offers more value, and buyers are recognizing it." This is false, IMHO. Very much a 'Demand vs. Supply issue' in the US car market. Used cars are over-priced as the manufacturers struggle to meet demand for new. If you want - actually should state NEED - a car as yours is non-functional, then you're forced to buy what's available, not what you want or can afford for a new car. Thus, used cars sitting on lots are snatched up, since peeps can't wait 3+ months for the similarly priced new car. I don't get how that offers more value, unless they meant 'for the dealer'. :-(
