By applying statistical analysis to its database of more than 5 million used vehicle transactions annually, Manheim has developed a measurement of used vehicle prices that is independent of underlying shifts in the characteristics of vehicles being sold.
Wholesale used vehicle prices (on a mix-, mileage-, and seasonally adjusted basis) declined 1% in November. This brought the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index to 124.7 for November, a decrease of 0.3% from a year ago.

When Dr. Will Murray died early this month, we lost a tireless researcher and advocate for road safety, and a great friend to a broad community of coworkers.
As great as our loss is, his death is devastating to his family and friends in Huddersfield, England. Will was a devoted husband and father to his two sons, and a dedicated and passionate soccer coach.
Of Will, it can be truly said that our pain at his passing is conquered by the joy and honor of knowing him; we never missed an opportunity to spend time with Will when we were visiting the UK. His dedication to road safety sprung in great measure from a genuine interest in ameliorating the unnecessary human loss and suffering caused by collisions.
Ed Dubens, Executive Director of eDriving —where Will was Director of Research— perhaps put it best when he told Fleet News , “Even those [who knew Will] only a short time or interacted with him briefly at a conference came away recognizing the complex and compassionate genius he was.
“Everyone who came in contact with Will always enjoyed every minute they spent with him. His charisma and congeniality were unrivaled and his passion for our industry and saving lives was palpable in every conversation.”
Realizing that fleet professionals are busy people - who can’t travel all the time - NAFA has broken up all its programs and turned them into webinars.
This fleet professional knows a whole lot about work-life balance - and understanding how to stay in the moment is an important part of that balance.
President-elect Donald Trump said Sunday that “nobody really knows” whether climate change is real and that he is “studying” whether the United States should withdraw from the global warming agreement struck in Paris a year ago.
In an interview with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, Trump said he’s “very open-minded” on whether climate change is underway but has serious concerns about how President Obama’s efforts to cut carbon emissions have undercut America’s global competitiveness.
“I’m still open-minded. Nobody really knows,” Trump said. “Look, I’m somebody that gets it, and nobody really knows. It’s not something that’s so hard and fast. I do know this: Other countries are eating our lunch.”
Consumers who choose a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ award winner shouldn't have trouble seeing the road on nighttime drives.
Good or acceptable ratings in the Institute's new headlight evaluations set the latest crop of qualifiers apart. Thirty-eight models earn the "plus" accolade, and 44 earn Top Safety Pick.
IIHS toughened the criteria for Top Safety Pick+ to reflect new headlight evaluations launched in 2016. The recognition program is meant to encourage manufacturers to offer state-of-the-art protection for people in crashes, along with features that help drivers avoid crashes in the first place. In addition to good or acceptable headlights, the latter includes automatic braking technology, which has been part of the criteria since 2015.
