Don’t pull the plug on Google Plus just yet

Fully-Loaded Vehicles Feeling Heavier Depreciation

Sophisticated vehicle features, technology and add-ons are one of the reasons why transaction prices have increased on new cars and trucks. But Black Book has noticed that these "fully loaded" vehicles are experiencing more depreciation than their "base model" counterparts. One reason for this is that the typical used-car buyer is still shopping for value rather than technology, which means the fully loaded model is often found near the similar price of a base model.

As an…

The finding suggests that millennials are more willing than older adults to sacrifice the long-term financial benefits of car ownership to get into bigger or more luxurious vehicles that are typically more affordable through leasing.
