Another source for used cars was smothered, if during the 2008 financial crisis, and car companies cut back new credit tightened on leasing. Company sell cars rented as possible, when leases expire.

Japan's earthquake and tsunami drive the price of some used cars. New models of some small cars like the Toyota Prius and Honda fit, will be said is expected shortly. Traders are used, buy to sell on their behalf. That won't last, though.
