How Vincentric Picks the Winners

Now, you might wonder, how does Vincentric decide these winners? Their method involves a detailed statistical analysis. They examined over 18,000 vehicle configurations, considering factors like depreciation, fees, taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity costs, and repairs. These costs were analyzed alongside the CPO warranty each manufacturer offers, considering the mileage requirements for a vehicle to qualify as an OEM CPO. The evaluation spanned all 50 states plus Washington DC, assuming each vehicle would be driven 15,000 miles annually over five years.
