Frequently asked questions
Buying a used car can be a great value, especially if the vehicle is part of a Certified Pre-Owned program and has been well-maintained and lightly used.
Technology plays a significant role in the depreciation of vehicles, as models with outdated tech depreciate faster due to lower consumer demand for older features.
Keeping your vehicle for about three to five years can optimize its resale value, balancing depreciation with usage and maintenance costs.
Some models may depreciate faster due to factors like lower demand, higher maintenance costs, or outdated technology compared to newer versions.
Mileage is considered a major factor in the depreciation of vehicles because it directly correlates with the amount of use and potential wear and tear the vehicle has undergone.
The depreciation rate can be influenced by factors such as the vehicle's condition, mileage, market demand, and the pace of technological advancements in newer models.
When buying a car, consider models with strong resale histories, opt for popular color and feature options, and evaluate current market trends for the best value retention.
On average, a new car can depreciate by approximately 23% after the first year, reflecting the premium paid for new technology and immediate depreciation once it's considered used.
