American Made Cars

The other day I swore I would never purchase another new car because of how quickly they drop in value.  Last night wile playing at The Kelley Blue Book site I made an intereresting discovery… Only american cars values drop like boulders in a lake. 🙂


My hatred for american cars has grown over the years and this only feeds it.


Case in point…


BMW 325i
2004 Retail: 28,495
2000 Retail: 20,735
4 year depreciation : 7,760


Pontiac BONNEVILLE SE
2004 Retail: 27,570
2000 Retail: 11,635
4 year depreciation : 15,935


Toyota SOLARA SLE
2004 Retail: 26,510
2000 Retail: 14,920
4 year depreciation : 11,590


I will let the numbers speak for themselves.
