Special Report - Auction Prices

Following up on last weekís special report about the used car bubble bursting, I thought I would bring you up to speed on what happened this week at the Manheim Dallas Auction on Wednesday, September 2nd.

I just finished watching the same auction as I reported on last week. This week, more vehicles brought closer than the Manheim Market Report guide (MMR). However, you have to factor in the fact that last weekís bloodbath lowered the MMR pricing.

Toyotaís continue to struggle versus MMR, but they were the most overpriced in the past couple of months. Tacomas and Tundras that two weeks ago were bringing $5000 over MMR, are bringing under MMR for the second week in a row.

Other typical vehicles that usually bring way over MMR were off again this week. Great examples are Subaru, Jeep Wranglers, and Chevy Suburbans.

Vehicles that sold Wednesday that caught my attention were:
Year/Model Mileage MMR Amount Sale Amount
2017 Hyundai Tucson 30,000 $14,350 $12,600
2017 Honda Civic Sport 28,000 $21,300 $19,250
2019 Subaru Forester 8,667 $30,000 $29,250
2018 Toyota Corolla 29,000 $14,000 $13,000
2019 Tacoma SR5 14,000 $31,700 $28,750
2018 Tundra Crew Cab 17,900 $42,100 $40,000
2017 Lexus ES V6 29,000 $26,700 $24,750
2018 Mustang Conv. 45,000 $19,550 $17,250
2017 Shelby GT350 5,917 $51,000 $49,250
2014 Wrangler 69,450 $23,500 $19,000
2020 Jeep Gladiator 14,000 $48,900 $44,750
2016 Chevy Suburban 47,000 $40,000 $35,250


I donít completely understand it but used Teslas continue to bring big money. Watch as this 2018 Model 3 with a $42,700 MMR sells for $47,750:


Iíve been amazed at what used 2020 Corvettes have been bringing lately at the auction. In the video below, youíll see three used 2020 Corvettes sell. While they are still bringing well over the original MSRP, they are falling short of the MMR guide pricing.

WARNING: The seller is an animated guy, so
