Ford Resale Values Likely to Increase

January 13, 2011

Ford Resale ValuesConsumer Reports has released their "2011 Car Brand Perception Survey" in which 2,000 people were asked to name which cars they thought provided the best safety, quality, value and performance.

This is an important survey because the perceptions of consumers can have a large effect on the resale value of the car you purchase.

This year's survey found that while Toyota is still the leader in brand perception, it has taken a big hit - and is now closely followed by Ford.

Ford has been very impressive lately with the strides they've made when it comes to quality and value. We should see their resale values moving up as more and more consumers perceive the brand in a better light.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
