Anyone else think some of these retail prices seem really low? A 2014 ACCORD for 21k? I don't really think so....Camaro for 23k? Where have I been? Under a rock? I am confused. I don't believe these are STICKER prices....

If that Tundra is $25,920 I'll eat my hat.

God, who writes this crap?  And don't they have editors who have to approve it?  Audi and Mercedes are depreciation baths.  Not to mention total pieces of unreliable junk.  Initial quality ok, but come on.

I guess this writer has never tried to buy a used Suburban.  Also mileage has a lot to do with value after three years.  Complete waste of time reading this.

Pure speculation based on little but opinion in many cases.

Looks to me like Toyota and Honda bought the article...lol Considering all the recent trouble Toyota has been having, I'd say they were once a good car...apparently not anymore.

As I read this I keep thinking that "Best Value" and "best residual value projections" are two different things.  Best Value is subjective and relative to the reader.  Best residual does not always equal best value.  Seems MSN continues to struggle labeling articles.

It doesn't matter how little it depreciates.  Take it to a dealer and try to trade it in.  You are sure not to get the depreciated value for it.  They are never going to give you even part of what it is worth.  I guess they have to screw  you out of your money one way or the other.  They gotta live too.

All those Toyotas on there...the bombardment of recalls on Toyotas over the last 5 years has damaged their value.  These estimates are top retail, and don't hold your breath.  My Ford F1 pickup (1951) cost 1800 new, I bought it for 3000 in 2008, and it has been appraised for 18000 (still has original paint job).   APPRECIATION of 1000% over 62 years.  You won't find a 62 year old Toyota, but if you did, the value wouldn't be 10 times over the original price.  Appreciation and depreciation is much more related to actual value than the original price.  In 1951 5,000 dollars a year was a great wage, A new house cost about that, gas was 22 cents a gallon.

Who the hell are you kidding? I paid $57.5k for my 2013 A6 Prestige 3.0T 3 months ago, $7k under retail, and now it books under $50k. Best value my butt. As soon as I have positive equity in it, its gone. I'm not keeping a car thats not gonna be worth the aluminum its made of in a few years.
