What's one of the most important things you look at when making the second biggest purchase of your life? After you find the best price on the vehicle of your dreams you have to consider the resale value!
Retained value is defined as the projected residual value of a vehicle after five years of ownership.
Certain vehicles lose resale value over the years, meaning that you'll lose more money than necessary when its time to get a new car. So how do you avoid this? First, buy American. According to cars.com, 6 of the 10 worst resale value holding cars are foreign. Including Nissans, Mitsubishis and Mercedes-Benz'. That being said, once you buy American, what should you be looking for?
How about the 2012 GMC Acadia? Why you may ask? Well, The GMC Acadia was recently awarded Edmunds.com's "Best Retained Value" according to consumer automotive research. Acadia has a projected 46% resale value! That is the most of any SUV between $35,000-$45,000!
