Black Book’s Used Vehicle Retention Index rose to 113.9 in September from 112.6 in August.This is the largest month-over-month gain since March 2012. The Black Book Used Vehicle Retention Index is calculated using Black Book’s published Wholesale Average value on two- to six-year-old used vehicles, as percent of original typically equipped MSRP.

The replacement process began in September, with compact cars (2.8 percent), compact crossover SUVs (2.4 percent), full-size cars (2.5 percent), and midsize cars (2.3 percent) each seeing significant month-over-month increases within the Index.
