There’s been a lot of discussion recently on the role leasing has been playing on used car prices, with particular emphasis on the rising number of lease returns expected this year and in years to come.
Scot Hall from Swapalease.com believes leasing is playing less of a role on the reasons why prices are headed down. Consider the following points:
“It’s easy to point a finger at leasing when it comes to falling car prices simply because there has been a great resurgence in lease deals since the recession,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. “However, when you go from 10 million SAAR to 16 million SAAR, there’s a great resurgence all around, not just leasing. It’s difficult to congratulate leasing in helping you get to 16 million SAAR and then also say it’s hurting the industry by forcing falling auto prices.”
