NADA Used Car Guide ana­lyzed sev­er­al man­u­fac­tur­ers’ one-year reten­tion val­ues, as had been done recent­ly on one-year old lux­u­ry mod­els. These main­stream mod­els were cho­sen based on the most pop­u­lar trim lev­el of the mod­el as deter­mined by its share of new vehi­cle sales. The reten­tion val­ues come from a cal­cu­la­tion from a three-month aver­age (Oct-Dec. 2014) of NADA’s aver­age trade-in val­ue divid­ed by a vehicle’s typ­i­cal­ly equipped MSRP.
