“The Vincentric Best CPO Value in America awards offer insight to those trying to understand which certified pre-owned vehicles provide the best value in today’s market,” said Vincentric President, David Wurster. “Low total cost of ownership is fundamental in making smart vehicle purchase decisions. These awards have been created to enlighten potential buyers as to which CPO vehicles will provide the best value in the long run.”
To determine the 2016 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America award winners, Vincentric conducted a statistical analysis to reveal which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Vincentric analyzed over 15,000 vehicle configurations using eight cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs, with the costs measured after incorporating the specific CPO brand warranty offered by the manufacturer. Each CPO vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus DC, assuming each vehicle was driven 15,000 miles annually and is expected to be driven 15,000 miles annually over the next five years.
