Used car prices have finally started to level off and settle down after a more than a year of shortages driving them to record levels, but there are a few that may never be what used to be called “cheap” anytime soon.

A new review by iseecars.com’s of over three million transactions involving 2017 to 2019 model year vehicles discovered several are holding their value significantly better than the others.

A few are even worth more than they were new.

The study, which adjusted the original prices for inflation and eliminated low volume and out of production models, determined that the average five-year depreciation now stands at 33%, compared to 40% last year, but several models have done much better than that.
