While minivans were even in March, the segment improved 7 percentage points from last year. Additionally, SUV pricing increased 3 percent from March and was up two points from April 2008. 

According to OPENLANE, the truck segment was the only one to show a month-over-month gain as truck values gained 8 percentage points compared to last year. However, the segment experienced a decrease from March. 

Dealer interest in the truck segment improved 8 percent from last March; however, it remained somewhat below 2008's levels. Interest in cars remained steady in April, but was down 4 percent year-over-year. 

While minivans dipped two points from March, dealer interest improved five points from April 2008.
