“As credit card debt in the U.S. reaches an all-time high of more than $17 trillion in 2024, Americans are feeling the weight of inflation and choosing more cost-saving options when possible, including with the maintenance of their cars,” said Bill Hanvey, president and CEO, Auto Care Association. “For many of the 236 million licensed drivers in the U.S., driving isn’t a luxury—it’s an everyday necessity—and the automotive aftermarket is proving to be the most viable option for affordable service and repair for many Americans as their budgets tighten. This year’s Factbook report underlines this trend of cost consciousness for the American consumer from the barber shop to the repair shop. The Factbook gives readers a holistic view of the aftermarket with the latest available data, equipping industry professionals with the information needed to plan for the year ahead.”
