Interesting how things differ up here north of the border.

I lol'd at: "near luxury = BMW 1 Series".

Acura better enjoy this while they can because they're still riding on the coat tails of their previous success with the old TL, TSX, and MDX - cars that were actually respectable. When the butt-ugly-beak-posse starts to hit the used market and nobody wants to buy one, ALG's "predictions" will change a little.

Even then, not sure how they "predict" that the 2010 models (most of which have sold miserably), will be worth more than their competitors in 3-4 years.

We go over this every year

Acura's cheapest car is what 28k and most expensive 55k. Of course it seems they high residuals, they don't depreciate like real luxury cars. What I find odd is the RL resale has been horrendous since 1996 and the current model had terrible resale since day one, their flagship. All the other cheaper vehicles do better.

Lexus being #2 is much more impressive since they sell anything from 32k-120k vehicles (and now 375k). So their having high resale is a REAL result.

BMW, Benz will always have a tougher time here since BMW sells from 28k-140k and Benz 32k-190k+ (forgot SLS price). You can buy a M5 for 40k today and AMG cars depreciate like mad b/c of their initial high MSRP.

Acura isn't really a luxury brand and really shouldn't even be included at this point.

Ugliness/looks have absolutely nothing to do with resale value.

I disagree. I think what MP is getting at is these are based on the older models which at least were bland/unoffensive at the worst. With the new undesirables they can't give away today new, it will hurt resale since no there will be much less demand/desire to own them.

Bingo. Five years ago Acuras were desireable because they had the reliability and dependability of a Honda, a little more technology and luxury, and looked conservatively handsome. It goes without saying that they sold pretty well and prev. gen TLs are still highly relished in the used market.

This new generation of cars has not sold nearly as well as the last so I would expect used values to go down based on that fact alone. Add to that the fact that their cars are lacking in features and technology compared to rivals, and I really cannot see a compelling reason to pick up and new Acura, whether now or in 4 years on the used market.

I am more than willing to give Acura credit where it is due, but IMO, ALG's "predictions" are based heavily on numbers and transaction values of older Acuras...cars that sold much better and were more competitive.

Yes, I think when they carve up the top 5, it's more hair-splitting than anything else. A buyer making wise choices in selecting specific models in top 5 will do well from a resale value standpoint in general.

Yeah - he'll like that Acura until he actually goes and starts looking at them
