10 Biggest Used Car Price Drops

February 18, 2016

As with everything that's for sale, prices can fluctuate. And when it comes to used cars, those prices can fluctuate by a great deal.

According to, BMW had a number of vehicles with big price drops in January, including the BMW 740i with the largest price drop last month of 5.9%, as well as the BMW 750i and 528i (both with 4% price drops) and BMW 535i (-2.8%).

On the flip side, the GMC Savana 2500 experienced the largest price increase in January, with used car prices raising 3.9%. Other big used car price increasers included the Nissan Murano (+2.9%), Lincoln MKT (+2.1%), and Hyundai Genesis (+1.5%).

If you're currently shopping for a car, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and RydeShopper to see the best prices being offered in your local area.
