The used car boom

As the price for new vehicles has been increasing, more Americans are turning towards buying second-hand cars and light trucks. Buying new cars and light trucks is typically seen as a privilege that few may do often. Generally, used vehicles sales are on the rise in most countries. Thanks to ever improving technology, automobiles may keep running for many years and remain of good condition. This allows the average age of light vehicles in operation in the United States is slowly increasing. Although new cars are often seen as status symbols, vintage cars are also very popular in the United States, the main reason for this trend being aesthetic and cultural values.
