Best resale value might be any car that does not have a $5,000-$8,000  battery in it.

Resale? What's that?

 

I still own the last three cars I bought:

 

1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z 260,000 miles

 

1995 Dodge Caravan 220,000 miles

 

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan 180,000 miles

Let me see if I understand this....I didn't know Kiplinger had become an automotive magazine.  Anyone with common sense would have used NADA,  Kelley Blue Book,  Black Book, or Edmund's.  MSN Autos and your internet competitors misinform the public but never apologize.

Best resale value vehicles don't mean most reliable vehicles.

How do they determine three and five year resale values for 2012 models?

The most sensible thing to do is buy a good used car, a year or two old, with the first owner eating the depreciation.  Ideally, the car has a good service record, because lack of oil changes or being driven into the ground can ruin a new car in less than two years.  Once you find a good one you like and can afford, maintain it and drive it until the wheels fall off or a major repair is required that costs much more than the car is worth.  Sell it for parts or scrap, and buy another one.  There is nothing cheaper than a paid-for car, unless it is no car at all.

I have not read the article... but I wonder, why would you be worried about the resale value of a 2012 car???? We have not even finished the FIRST FRIGGIN' QUARTER of 2012 and MSN is already writing this "article"??? The only way you could be selling a 2012 model is if you have already paid it off in full, otherwise you will lose money... how do we know that these cars are reliable? Ask again in two years, three years and five years and see how consumers feel about the cars. This seems to be a BULLSCHIESTE article, probably sponsered by one of the carmakers... so really this is just advertising on MSN selling cars. DON"T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ< especially on MSN, Yahoo or Shine... they have monkeys on the keyboards spewing this crap!!!

If you don't buy a Japanese car you'll be labeled a "racist". America has gotten so stupid.

This list is a joke!!  The Ford Focus is on there at three year resale of 63% and five year of 45%.  We all know that a Focus is only worth 50% of the msrp when NEW.  Those cars have always been throw aways........in the same category as Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Cnevy Cobalt.  Once you're done with it, no one wants it, so you throw it away.

@MPL

 

If Jeep is owned by Chrysler, which is owned by Fiat, doesn't that make it as much of an import as any of the "foreign" cars that are also manufacturered in the US?
