Buick Depreciation

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 2019 is our top pick for the best model year value for the Buick vehicles. With the 2019, you would only pay, on average, 66% of the price as new, with 92% of the vehicle's useful life remaining. The 2018 and 2016 model years are also attractive years for the Buick models, and provide a relatively good value. Our rankings consider multiple factors, including original new prices, current prices, maintenance costs and remaining years of overall predictabe expenses. Our top ranked model year represents the most car for the money with a Buick model.
