Making Do With More Mileage

The recession put the brakes on consumer spending, and made credit harder to come by. As a result, fewer people bought new cars, which boosted the average age of US cars to a record 11.4 years in 2012.[1] Spending on car maintenance increased, and that helped companies that serve the aftermarket for replacement parts and services. Additionally, more consumers started fishing for deals on used cars. That increased sales of pre-owned vehicles by 4.4% from 2011 to 2012[2], while the average price of a used car(up to eight years old) increased 1.2%.[3] All of which revs the engines of car dealers, who earn higher margins on used car sales vs. new cars. This motif provides exposure to the companies that may benefit from the surge in the auto aftermarket business caused by the extended use of aging cars. See more
