Published in CheatSheet by Eric Schaal

According to a study by car-buying site Carjojo, consumers at the lowest income levels would feel the burn most. For families earning $27,500 a year, the markups would represent 12% of pretax annual income. Carjojo found that vehicles on sale for less than $20,000 would rise an average of $2,700 at a combined tax rate of 19%. In this scenario, middle- and low-income Americans would pay billions in new taxes to the U.S. Treasury.

Here are America’s 10 Favorite Cheap Cars

Published in MSN News Auto and The Drive by Kyle Cheromcha

“Starting with a list of the ten cheapest new cars (by base automatic transmission model) on sale in the country today, car-buying service Carjojo analyzed where exactly buyers were springing for these bargain specials the most from May 2016 to last month. They ranked the top twenty metro areas by the percentage of new car sales that counted as qualifying “cheap cars” in each one. Again, this wasn’t by total volume, but rather market share.”

“Peter Levy, founder of the consumer car-buying site Carjojo, dug into the many challenges you might face when negotiating a vehicle purchase. Using statistics from the field as well as studies in behavioral science, Levy found techniques that put shoppers on an even playing field at dealerships.”

“Phoenix has the highest percentage of cheap car sales than any other major metropolitan area, according to the car-buying site Carjojo.

“Carjojo has analyzed sales of the 10 cheapest new cars in the 20 biggest American metropolitan areas. Phoenix residents buy the cheapest new cars at more than twice the average rate of residents of America’s big cities.

“American new-car buyers aren’t enamored with cheap compact cars,” said Levy. “They like SUVs and pick-ups that cost more. The Versa has been a small success, attracting more cost-conscious buyers than some of the other vehicles whose main selling point is the price,” said Carjojo founder and president Peter Levy.”

“[Carjojo is] “recommended for the unique data they can reveal…has a useful feature that presents available incentives.”

“In some parts of the country buyers look at the Toyota Prius as a toy, something real men don’t drive. In other parts of the country, a Tesla and the Chevrolet Bolt are status symbols.” –Peter Levy, CEO Carjojo

“The Western states in which Trump received only 23 percent of electoral-college votes had the highest per-capita rate of green-car sales in the fourth quarter of last year. Carjojo’s analysis points out that Trump voters came from more economically depressed areas of the country, those where you might expect lower running costs to be an important factor in new-car sales.”

Carjojo uses natural language to find a new car

Published in TechCrunch by Kristen Hall-Geisler

“Carjojo doesn’t rely on dealers to input their inventory into its system — it just searches the entire internet, Google style. So you see every relevant car, not just the vehicles dealers pay to put into a proprietary system.

“See how long the car has been on the lot, how many similar cars are available in the area, and more—all things that will affect negotiations for the lowest price. It also calculates anything that could cut the price, from special offers to military rebates. If those apply to you, all the better.”

6 Things You Should Do Before You Sell Your Car

Published in US News by Jaclyn Trop

“Be wary of geography and the time of year. “You may find local prices differ from national guidelines,” says Peter Levy, founder of the car-buying site Carjojo. “If that’s the case, you can average Kelley Blue Book with pricing you see locally to come up with a value.” Note that certain vehicles move faster during specific seasons. Convertibles, sports cars, and coupes are likelier to sell in the summer months. You might have to lower your prices to attract buyers in the fall or winter. Meanwhile, the demand for trucks and vans is evergreen.”

Volkswagen, Ram could get hit hard by Trump’s border tax

Published in The Car Connection by Richard Read

“According to a study by car-buying site Carjojo, consumers at the lowest income levels would feel the burn most. For families earning $27,500 a year, the markups would represent 12% of pretax annual income. Carjojo found that vehicles on sale for less than $20,000 would rise an average of $2,700 at a combined tax rate of 19%. In this scenario, middle- and low-income Americans would pay billions in new taxes to the U.S. Treasury.”

“Carjojo, which tracks car-sales data, has found that 35 percent of all vehicles with a base MSRP below $20,000 sold in the past six months were made south of the border. Those same cars represented about 5 percent of all new-car sales volume in the United States. The 20 percent import-tax adjustment proposed by Republicans would not apply only to Mexico, of course.”

Auto sales rebound with big discounts and free TVs

Published in Chicago Tribune by Jamie Butters

“Carjojo, a closely held company that offers to negotiate purchases for consumers who don’t want to haggle, said there are good deals to be had where models are oversupplied. Some sedans are overstocked as consumers prefer SUVs and car-based crossovers to traditional car models.

“Lexus had more than a six-month supply ES 350 sedans on dealer lots, according to Carjojo, which was founded by Peter Levy, the former chief executive officer of auto researcher IntelliChoice. Given the heavy supply, the company says there’s a reasonable chance that Lexus will further increase discounts in December.”
