AARP? Were all of the vehicles Camry’s?

Will I get my Fisker One delivered before my VW needs its 100K service?? The race is on..
and…… will we still get the $7500 tax credit? Only HF knows…

@seancallahan is it the color or is it the vehicle?  (And I am assuming they are ignoring all the NY Yellow cabs in their depreciation analysis.).

If you paint your Camry or Accord yellow or orange, it will likely be worth less than a Camry/Accord of normal colors.  The majority of cars that are yellow or orange tend to be low production vehicles, these vehicles will hold their value more than mass market vehicles.

@ttrinchi ? That was the only thing in the mag, no article just an info box! It mentions iseecars.com but I haven’t checked it out yet!

Thanks for sharing @seancallahan!

I checked out the site and it looks like colour also depends on the car segment as well such as SUVs in our case for the Ocean.

Scroll down to the SUV Depreciation by Color section:

Taking this with a grain of salt, but suddenly feeling smug about choosing the (very uncommon) compass yellow for our Rivian order.

@bayoubob pretty sure your Rivian could be doo-doo brown with purple rims and you’d still make a killing if you flipped it or even sold it after a year.

By the time ours arrives (late 2023) I am sure pricing will have settled down a lot. R1T resale is starting to settle down significantly (most of the recent sales on cars and bids are ~ $5k - $7k below what you can order a new one for, even if still significantly above the the owner paid). The R1S is still selling for stupid prices of $20k over what it would cost to order one today ($110k - $120k) but it will settle down next year. In any case, we are planning to keep it. (OTOH, if someone wanted to pay me $120k for a $70k truck after tax rebate, I would sure be tempted! Not gonna happen.)
