ALG, a Santa Barbara, Calif.-based automotive research firm, and Kelley Blue Book, an Irvine, Calif.-based provider of new- and used-car information, each year release their residual value awards, which honor those automobiles predicted to retain the highest percentage of their manufacturer’s suggested retail price after three years. The rankings are not an exact science, but they can help consumers make a more informed choice when buying a car.
