Cars.com has put together a list of the 2014 models with the worst re-sale value. The information was compiled by automotive industry analysts at ALG and show what percentage of the cars original MSRP it is worth after one year of use.
This is important, because a car with poor resale value may turn out to be a much more expensive purchase than the salesman at the dealership made you think with those strong incentives. So how did General Motors’ offerings fare in this year’s residual value ratings?
In the sake of the Chevrolet Impala Limited, not well. The vehicle — which is the old Impala that is still sold to fleets — is projected to lose 60% of its retail value after the first year. This was topped only by the Chevrolet Captiva Sport, another fleet only vehicle, which will lose 62% of its original value.
