Black Book Editor Notes Dealer Reluctance to Pay Premium Wholesale Prices


- May 9, 2011

In talks with deal­ers, Black Book man­ag­ing edi­tor Ricky Beg­gs is get­ting a sense of “obvi­ous reluc­tance” in pay­ing high­er pre­mi­ums at auc­tion. Over­all whole­sale unit prices dipped for the first time since ear­ly March. Cars con­tin­ued to move well, but some truck seg­ments saw sig­nif­i­cant declines.
