Reasonable to ask if the auto industry is recession proof. Empty dealer lots seem to be filling. Wait lists are shortening. Chip supplies are improving. Higher interest rates has to make cars more costly. Inflation has to squeeze dollars available for something new. Maybe keep the old one a year longer.

Are new car buyers still plentiful? Or is the business slowing. Carvana says the glory days are ending.
