LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's been a rough year for car sales.

Kelly Blue Book reports the average price for a light vehicle is up just 1%. Poor sales have led to bigger deals and discounts as dealers struggle to clear inventory. 

The one positive in the report is Hyundai Kia thanks to new three-row SUVs and electric car. Hyundai Kia saw a 10% jump in prices in 2019.
