24 Cars with Highest Resale Values

According to a recent article on Forbes.com, new cars on average kept only about 38% of their original value after five years. That's a considerable hit to your wallet if you're expecting the car you're buying now to help you purchase another one in a few years.

To help you get a better handle on what cars retain their values the best, Forbes put together a list of the 24 cars with the best resale values. On the list are models such as the Hyundai Accent, Toyota Avalon, Chevy Camaro, and Kia Soul.

If you're considering one of these high resale value vehicles, be sure to use TrueCar to compare real prices where you live.

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.
