Our Buick Depreciation Analysis and Recommendations

Buy a new Buick, only if you want to say, "our family has always owned Buicks". Don't buy a new one if you don't want to lose a lot of value through depreciation, as they depreciate hard and fast. Both the Enclave and Encore fall towards the end of the list in value retention, and like Chrysler cars, are better suited for a rental fleet--and many of them are, which contributes to their supply at the auctions and their weak resale values.

The 2018, 2017 & 2016 Buick model years are currently the best values in our opinion.

On average, expect to pay only 63% of the original cost with 83% of the vehicle's lifetime remaining for a 2018 Buick. That gives it a Net Used Value score of 20.25 which factors in annual maintenance costs, price decline, reliable years left and available inventory.

Also consider the 2017 & 2016 model years. Those currently have a generally low risk of any significant depreciation over the next several years.

Already Own a 2018 Buick?

While we would advise holding onto this vehicle for a few years, that's not always the plan. Dealers have access to similar figures so they know that your vehicle has a low risk of depreciation.
