The used retail SAAR takes it a step further by only looking at used vehicles sold via a dealership (both franchised and independent) thus removing private party sales from the calculation. The June used retail SAAR estimate is 21.3 million, down from 23.1 million last year and down month over month from May. Retail used sales volume of 1.7 million is estimated for June down from 1.8 million in May and 1.9 in June 2020.
