PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- Buying a car is as much about what you'll sell it for years from now as it is about the current sticker price.The standard wisdom is that your car depreciates in value as soon as it leaves the lot. Its value doesn't completely fall off a cliff, however, unless you decide to run it into the ground or buy a model not known for its longevity. The folks at auto pricing and valuation site Kelley Blue Book note that depreciation costs a car owner more than gas, maintenance or insurance during the first five years of new-car ownership.
