Used car prices are higher

The Manheim used vehicle price index hit a record in mid-June, rising about 4% year over year, 7% compared with the May reading, and surging more than 16% compared with the April pandemic-induced low.

I purchased a 2016 vehicle with 20,000 miles from CarMax in October for $23,000. At the time, there were half-a-dozen versions of this particular vehicle available, all over the pacific northwest. This same search in June netted just a single example of this vehicle, and it was a 2015 model with 39,000 miles, also priced at $23,000.
