Wondering if it is just me- or does it seem used car prices seeming way higher now?

I’ve seen cars ( not trucks) at/nearly 200k still going for close to ten grand. Saw a Chevy Captiva with 240k going for a tad over 5 grand. I swear right now if it runs, it could go for 2000...

Also see that some private sellers going the car lot prices too. A few blocks from me there is a 10 Fusion SE with 170k going for 4800.

Is it just me? I know prices were higher, but they seem much crazier to me now.....

On a serious note, I think a lot of people that relied on public transportation are looking for low cost transportation due to COVID.

Yup.

I watch CL for project prii, they're selling faster than ever. I assume GrubHub drivers are snapping them up-- they've bought two of mine.

My ratty 95 F150, that I paid $600 for 6 years ago, got me $1100, needing front spring towers and a leaf spring for inspection. I thought it was "trucks are expensive" but from this thread maybe "wheels are expensive."

There was a number of years where auto sales were down, a decade ago, and 10 year old cars it seems to be dominate the numbers in the cheap used market--there are cheap newer cars (driven hard and put away wet) and cheap older ones (gently taken care of) but all around, but my SWAG is that cheapo beaters are roughly 10 years in age now. That's not fallout from C4C as much as a loss in new vehicle sales. Edit: now that I've wandered off and thought about it more, it's not that 10 year old vehicles dominate the beater scene--it's the loss of vehicles above the beater level and not feeding that lower level that is putting a "strain" on the used market. Decrease the supply without impacting demand and the price goes up.

IMO too much of the USA hasn't got any public transit to speak of. So while in the cities demand for used cars may well have gone up--I don't see it impacting much of the rest of the USA.

I remember being a kid in the 90's and $200 would get you a vehicle with a year or two left. Running and moving without too many issues. Now it's past a grand, maybe more like two. That's well above appreciation. I think it's a confluence of factors: more road salt means vehicles have to hit the used market fast, else they just aren't worth anything--but that means they have lower miles and thus higher value. Higher bar to pass with OBDII inspections. And the aforementioned loss of new vehicle sales 10 years ago.

Considering most were run hard as rentals and put away wet, I agree.

Though those Ecotec engines can take quite a beating......
