Depreciation Adjustment for Standard Mileage Rate
The IRS Standard Mileage Rates above include a component for depreciation.  Even when you use the standard mileage rate, you need to calculate the gain or loss when the vehicle is disposed of.
This table lists the adjustment for each year since 1988.

Section 179 Limitations
In addition to regular depreciation, the government allows the expensing of new assets under section 179.  For vehicles subject to the luxury car limitations (under 6,000 lb), section 179 is included in the depreciation limits.  Vehicles not subject to the luxury car limitations follow the same rules for Section 179 as any other qualifying asset.  In late 2004, the government limited the Section 179 expense for over 6,000 lb. SUVs to $25,000.
