Fourth Annual Best-Retained Value Awards
Expanded from Black Book’s traditional ‘top five’ brands named, this year they have chosen top individual models from manufacturers. “Every brand contains weak performers, there is greater value to the consumer in identifying specific models that out-perform the pack,” said Larry Shred, executive vice president of CBB, adding, “Since the awards measure actual value retained and not a prospective look, consumer confidence in the model is strengthened based on actual performance”
