Toyota tax is real! Subaru's must be a snow/rust belt thing?, I live in the 4th largest Metro area in the US & Subaru's are not very common here. Nissan on the other hand is very popular here because our Hispanic population loves them.

The Toyota Tundra is interesting as they don't sell very well compared to the Big 3.

These don’t surprise me. I looked at used Imprezas before we bought our new 2019 and the prices were so close that it didn’t seem worth buying one that was 3-4 years old.

Tundras are great in many ways, but price and gas mileage are horrid.

See so many of those on the list in the PNW. Honda /Toyota/ Subaru rules the PNW

It is a list of highest resale value, not a Bob popularity contest. “I wouldn’t buy one” has nothing to do with it.

I really wonder what statistics do they use. I agree with the Forester because that is one reason I ended up buying a new one.

I wonder how the said tranny issues of the last generation (2014-2018) Subaru will ding the ratings going forward (same as blown gaskets) if many decide to dump the vehicles at the 10-year mark? The recent iteration of Odyssey isn't top-notch either (So says CR). Legacy surprises me too, I thought it was Camry's spot.

Yep. Extremely common here in NY. And used ones go for stupid money. I was looking back at 5 or 6 year old Foresters and they were still going for $18K. I got mine new for $23k.

Subaru surprised me a little. I'd think the popularity in 4 season areas would keep the market soft, (competition). Inflated values or asking price should drive new car sales and I've heard it does.

Happy ownership experience and reliability top my list. I guess cost of ownership is in there too but if I'm happy, that would be under that umbrella.
Resale comes in at the bottom of my priorities b/c my cars last a while with me, not sold off in the sweet spot for odometer mileage.
I'd suppose neighbors seeing me wash it , wax it and keep it up think I'm nuts about resale value but I just want it look good an be well maintained for ME.

Been a happy Mazda owner on three of them over the years. I'll hazard a guess they are well liked by owners but not particularly high on any resale list. I might have got my first one based on what I read by owners / perceptions. That's how I shop almost anything these days.

The list is surprising, but you're right, this is a collection of data, not a collection of collective wisdom and reasoning and hand wrangling.

This is not really surprising.

The dominant factor in resale value is availability and the major factor in availability is rental sales. That's why you'll never see a Toyota Corolla or Mazda3 on lists like these, and why Subarus, a brand which does have a cult following plus offer a lot of conveniences like AWD and added cargo space to go along with limited availability*, will always be at the top. Rental agencies don't buy Subarus at even close to the same numbers as they do Toyota, Mazda, Nissan and Hyundai.


*Limited availability in that Subaru is not a popular choice of car by most rental agencies, which means the used car market isn't ripe with 1-2 year old, 40k mile Subarus.
