Edmunds Publishes Depreciation Top Ten Lists

August 8, 2006

New "top ten" lists from Edmunds.com help consumers understand which vehicles hold their values well and which do not. The lists show the percentage of its original value that each vehicle is likely to retain after five years, assuming a total of 75,000 miles. Residual value percentages are based on the national Edmunds.com True Market Value(R) (TMV(R)) price for a vehicle equipped with typical options, plus destination charge. Each model's ranking represents an average of all trim levels in each model's lineup. Among the cars with the highest projected residual values and therefore to depreciate the least during the ownership period, are: 1. 2006 Honda S2000 - 51.7%
