Cars With the Best Resale Value

This week, ALG released a list of new vehicles with the highest projected resale values. This is an important factor to take into consideration, regardless of whether you plan to buy or lease your vehicle. This is because depreciation easily makes up the largest portion of your overall vehicle ownership costs.

Among mainstream brands, Honda ranked #1 for resale value, followed by Hyundai - which is very impressive considering it used to be ranked near the bottom as recently as 2007. Toyota, however, had the most vehicles chosen as #1 in their category (including Scion and Lexus).

Among premium brands, Acura ranked #1 followed by Infiniti and Audi. Check out the rest of the list below and make sure you use the free RydeShopper when you're ready to get the best deal on your vehicle.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist

Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
