(iSeeCars) – Used car prices It has fallen from record levels, but is still much higher than it was a year ago as a result of the persistent shortage of microchips. The limited stock of new cars has increased the demand for used cars, and since few people are trading used cars to buy new ones, used cars are still in short supply and require higher prices.

iSeeCars analyzed used car prices for the top 25 most popular cars to determine which cities are the most expensive and least expensive.
