DETROIT – The cost of used cars may be on the rise in Metro Detroit, but those vehicles are still selling quickly.

In fact, both used and new vehicles are being sold within a matter of weeks in the Detroit market, according to iSeeCars.

The car search engine reportedly analyzed data from one million new and used car sales across the U.S. in June, finding that the fastest-selling new cars in Metro Detroit are being bought quicker than the fastest-selling used cars -- but both are getting sold relatively quickly.
