Acura ILX, RDX Rate Best For Depreciation Says J.D. Power


J.D. Power has just announced their 2018 Best Depreciation Ratings, and two Acura vehicles, the ILX sedan and the RDX SUV were big winners.

There are many things to consider when shopping for a vehicle. One of the biggest is it's depreciation rate, and subsequently, it's resale value. Car depreciation is the amount of value your vehicle loses after it has been purchased. On average, a new car loses twenty percent of it's value within the first year of ownership, and a further ten percent per year during the next four years. Many cars lose 10 percent of their value during the first month of ownership!

Unless you are someone who keeps their vehicles for a very long time, driving them into the ground, so to speak, it is important to consider depreciation when you choose a new car. With vehicle financing sometimes extended over an 8-year period, some vehicles might have more owing on them, than they are worth, which is a problem.

J.D. Power's independent and unbiased ratings system determines the depreciation rate of each model on the market. The Acura ILX and the Acura RDX, both rated highly. J.D. Power's awards and ratings are based on the input of thousands of verified owners, and factor in their experiences with quality, performance, dependability and more.
