According to Automotive Leasing Guide, the resale value of a Chrysler vehicle dropped six percent in the week following the company's Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

In just seven days the uncertainty about Chrysler's future crept into the marketplace in a very real way, damaging the resale values for Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep products almost equally.

Prior to the bankruptcy filing a three-year old Chrysler was worth 34.8 percent of its original value. After the filing, that amount dropped to just 28.8 percent.

The value of a three-year old Dodge went from 37.3 percent to 31.2 percent and three-year old Jeep vehicles declined in value from 38.4 percent of the original purchase price to 32.4 percent.

The news isn't good for those who recently purchased a Chrysler vehicle and as the declines are based on percentage they can take a significant toll on pricey models – like SUVs or the Challenger SRT8 pictured above.

In comparison, a three-year old Toyota retains 45.5 percent of its original value.

Resale

We just purchased a new '08 Grand Cherokee Diesel and we own an '07 Dodge Ram Diesel. My experience has been that these vehicles will out last a Jap vehicle. I have no doubts that these two Mopars will last us 10 to 15 years and several 100 thousand kms. If I needed another vehicle, I'd have no problem purchasing another Chrysler product.
