The average asking price of the Lodgy will be decreased by 13% ($13,681) after just 1 year. After three years, the car typically is valued at 62% of its original asking price ($9,575) while it will only be worth 27% of the MSRP after 7 years ($4,337). The Lodgy's value after twelve years is only 13% of its initial price depending on its condition of course.
