Kelley Blue Book announces the all-new 2009 model-year vehicle winners of its annual Best Resale Value Awards, which recognize current and upcoming vehicles for their projected retained value five years from now (the average ownership period).

, lot of these changing hands on the used market already? or is this based on early speculators selling the 1st cars they never registered for $10k over sticker?

Somehow I don't see the Tahoe Hybrid holding it's value all that well after 5 years...

Just a hunch.

I always wondered about these values, is it used value vs sticker? because most domestics sell for more $ under sticker than imports, which would skew the #s.

Lol, so true. I wouldn't waste my money on any of those cars. Got the Subaru bug.

Had to do a double-take on the lists. It's funny (but understandable) that only *2* of the cars that topped the individual category lists made it into the overall top 10 (Honda Civic and Mini Cooper). The rest - and that overall list in total - all fall under the compact and hybrid categories.

Basically, this means that the domestics have depreciated even before leaving the lot, so I don't think the numbers are scewed. Basic economics of supply and demand. The domestics have a high supple with very low demand and must discount significantly to increase demand where the other manufactures do not have to do this as serverely. MSRP vs used resale is a fair comparison.

Does anyone have a link to the Top 10 worst resale vehicles?

this will be a good reference when we need to pick up used vehicles

even though the big 3 didnt make it to the list... im way more willing to buy a used CTS than a used STI though. while most used STIs do hold their values fairly well, they actually do not have the subaru reliability since most of them were either modified, or, appeared to be stock but once modified. never buy a used car targetting towards kids

When I bought my WRX there happened to be a NEW Cadillac Escapade in the showroom right behind me. We started talking resale values.

It just so happens that once the car is driven off of the lot it looses 15k in value.
