Which Cars Maintain Their Value Over Time?

These days we’ve simply got to do what we can to be smart with our money. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t buy new vehicles, but instead it means that when we are in the market for a new or used car, we need to look for one that offers a great purchase price and also keeps its value for the long haul.

Two reports listing the brands and cars with the best resale value have just been released by Kelley Blue Book and ALG (formerly known as Automotive Lease Guide) to help prospective car buyers navigate the crowded and sometimes confusing new car market. 

Making things as simple as can be, both listings named Lexus as the luxury brand that held its value the best. The reports did not agree regarding mainstream brands with Kelley Blue Book giving this honor to Toyota and ALG to Subaru.  Still, if you are going to purchase a new vehicle via buy here pay here financing, these are two brands to seriously consider.b

Other names earning spots on the pair of lists are Audi, Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-Series Super Duty Full-sized pickups, GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Camaro V-6, Traverse full-sized SUVs and Volt.
