Car Holding Value, the Best and the Worst

on 10/15/2013


We all want to make our cars last as long as we can. Nobody likes adding car payments onto the already troublesome economic issues. Here is a list of the best and worst cars for holding value according to dealersfirst.com. This list is generally based on reliability, resale value after 5 years, gas mileage, etc.

 

Worst:

Toyota FJ Cruiser, Chevrolet Aveo, Ford F250, Volvo S60, Cadillac DTS, Nissan Titan, Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid, Jeep Liberty, Ford Ranger XLT, Mitsubishi Eclipse

 

Best:

Toyota Rav4, Honda CRV, Subaru Forrester, Volvo XC70, Lexus ES350, Mazda 2, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra Touring, Volkswagen Jetta, Mitsubishi Lancer

 

 

This is not a complete list of the best and worst vehicles; this is only what has been compiled from several reliable websites.

When purchasing the vehicle be sure to do your research. All cars depreciate some after you purchase them, but some tend to hold their value better than others. These are important things to consider if you want a vehicle that will last you many years and also if you plan to trade in within 5 years or so.

 

Happy car hunting!

Great Service




The service at the Car Hospital was great! They were able to get my car in on short notice, were very quick (within a couple hours), and presented a reasonable price! I will be going back the next time I need work done on my car.
