Frequently asked questions
Strategies to reduce the rate of depreciation include regular maintenance, keeping mileage low, avoiding significant modifications, and keeping up with all necessary repairs.
Some models may depreciate faster due to factors like lower demand, higher maintenance costs, or outdated technology compared to newer versions.
To minimize depreciation costs, consider purchasing a model known for retaining its value or opting for a slightly used vehicle that has already undergone initial depreciation.
Factors to consider when estimating the future resale value include the car's historical depreciation rate, current market trends, overall vehicle condition, and mileage.
