Do you anticipate car prices going up or down after the presidential election?

This is a tricky one, because although customers prefer seeing lower MSRPs—naturally enough—the ability to increase the amount of money actually paid for each vehicle by customers, known as the transaction price, is looked at as a sign of a healthy industry. So the fact that more than 53 percent of Autobytel readers expected vehicle prices to rise once the 2012 presidential election finished isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  And remember, even today, some new vehicles, like the all-new 2013 Nissan Sentra, have launched with lower pricing than past models.
