Are we starting to see inflation fatigue with new car/truck prices from buyers?

Is this the start of a trend?

It's still not enough. The MSRP for new cars has gone up something like, 30% or more since 2020. If I remember correctly, from what I've heard.

I bought a 2016 RAM Laramie for $14,000 off MSRP in January 2017. If I was in the new car market, I'd not settle for anything less than 10k off MSRP, at this point.

The days of add on, and market adjustments are coming back to bit them in the ass

Lol, that guy hasn't been on since 2013. The @ symbol gotcha.
 
You have to be a glutton for punishment to buy any of these over priced, recall laden vehicles these days. I'm not their target market anymore - not even close.
Agreed, me neither. I knew many years ago the day would come that I no longer desired a new vehicle. So I started figuring out what worked and lasted and started building a collection accordingly. I have trouble finding parts at times. But I have something else to drive while I'm waiting on said part
