October 25, 2007

Automotive Lease Guide (ALG) recently announced its annual Residual Value Awards, which honor those vehicles in each automotive segment predicted to retain the highest percentage of their original price after a conventional three-year lease term.

This year's awards are based on 2008 model year vehicles. For the sixth year, ALG has also included awards for the brands with the highest predicted resale values among all industry and luxury vehicles.

For the fifth consecutive year, American Honda Motor Company, Inc. has won the Industry Brand Residual Value Award. Honda also received individual segment awards for the Accord in the Mid-Size Car category and the Odyssey in the Minivan category. It was the seventh consecutive win for the Odyssey.
