Floridians are buying fewer cars -- we knew that much. But they continue to buy smarter, economically.
The top new-vehicle segments in February were midsize cars, compacts and compact SUVs. Same deal for the used-car buyers, according to Cross-sell, a market analyst for auto dealers..
During February, 50,946 new vehicles and 232,950 used vehicles were titled in Florida, Cross-sell said. These figures compare to 93,839 new-vehicle titles; that's a 45.7-percent dip over last February.
Used-car titles were 254,684 in February, an 8.5 percent reduction over last year.
