A Conversation About Used Cars, Retail Stimulus and More

I had the honor and privilege of being a guest on the Wisco Weekly podcast, which is hosted by Dennis Wisco, who worked in auto retail before creating an automotive-focused agency.

Our conversation started with some perspective on current efforts to stimulate retail demand and my belief that any effort should focus on used vehicles. We also discussed points I’ve shared here recently about the need for dealers to right-size their used vehicle inventories and pricing in light of current conditions in the wholesale and retail markets.
