Sometimes for the same price as new
Used cars are more popular than new cars in some places. Many consumers think buying a year old Honda or Toyota is the way to go.
Todd Yarbrough is general sales manager for Texas Direct Auto.
"The used car market is definitely better than the new car market right now."
Yarbrough says Houston mirrors the nation in this respect.
"We're selling a lot of SUVs and a lot of Honda, Toyota vehicles."
Around the country, used car dealers say they're having trouble keeping inventory to meet the demand. In some cases, new and used cars of the same make and model are selling for the same amount.
