POLL: How Much Did Your Last New Car Cost?
In case you haven't noticed, new cars have gotten expensive—as in, the most expensive they've ever been.
As of May 2016, the average transaction price for new cars was $33,845, according to Kelley Blue Book, up 3.5% year-over-year. Part of that increase is the result of the industry's slow but steady recovery after the Great Recession.
