As another data point to monitor the health of the automotive market, according to Cox Automotive estimates, total used vehicle sales were up 69% year over year in April. We estimate the April used SAAR to be 41.0 million, up from 23.6 million last April and up compared to March’s 40.5 million rate.

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 April used retail SAAR estimate is 22.4 million, up from 12.5 million last year and up month over month from March’s 22.2 million rate.
