New cars have been a seller's market, but that's changing

Apr 13, 2023
In March, the average new car sold for $171 below asking price, according to Kelley Blue Book. But that's still higher than before COVID.
A year ago, the average new-car buyer was paying close to $1,000 over sticker price. But with the semiconductor chip shortage easing, some automakers are ramping up production, says Rebecca Rydzewski of Cox Automotive.
