The Automotive Lease Guide provides a handy little table to delineate cars retain value best after a three-year period. The Five-Star vehicles are in the top 10 percent among 260 examined, the Four-Stars fall in the next 20 percent, Three-Stars in the middle 40 percent, and so on. Highlights from the top of the list include all Lexuses, plus, surprisingly, the entire Volvo line. BMW's 3 and 5-Series cars are Four-Star choices, along with most of the Toyota and VW models. Down near the bottom are the crappy domestic offerings from Buick, Chevy, Dodge, and Mercury. Plus, of course, the Phaeton, with a sorry two-star designation. Of course, this assumes that at least one person will actually buy a Phaeton.
