Record-High Vehicle Prices May Continue Into 2023
Sept. 9, 2021—Record-high consumer prices for vehicles — new and used, as well as rental cars — will extend into next year and might not fall back toward earth until 2023, the Associated Press reported.

The global parts shortage involves not just computer chips. Automakers are starting to see shortages of wiring harnesses, plastics and glass, too.
