Kelly Blue Book vs Nada

I want to know what the value is so that I don't get ripped off trading in this car

Kelly blue book says my trade-in on a 2001 ES with 38K miles should be 9,125 but NADA is telling me average trade in is 12,450. That is quite a price swing... I know which one I want to believe but which one should I believe?

Neither.

Dealers use a "Black Book" which tends to be an average of all the book prices.

I say average the two and go from there.

Oh, and ignore Avenger. You may not say many nice things about Chrysler, but I like your doses of reality, and unlike some others, you don't swing on DCs nuts.

Alot of dealers will use NADA when selling u a car but use Kelley when buying a car..... so yea go for an average of the 2. I had this happen once because someone i knew was going to by an audi but his price was higher than the blue book and the guy wanted to keep his deposit so he whipped out the Nada book to show how high it was. When you try to sell it post it as the NADA value (of course you will probably have to negotiate lower than that ) but when you buy a car try to follow blue book, that way you know your getting a good price.

I worked at a dealership and the used car trades were valued by the combination of the "Black Book", as LHSer stated, and the used car manager and the guy who bought and auctioned the cars (forget his title). You've got to wheel and deal man.

If those "nut swingers" didn't enjoy DC products so much would they own a DC vehicle? It's like a Viper owner saying that Chrysler makes shitty cars.

What? Now these days we call trying to help someone out posting useless info? If you believe that: then you need to read more.
P.S.
Next time try to come up with something more original, because you ALWAYS say the same shit time after time about me.

I dont know about your part of the U.S.. But i just looked in our local paper and you can buy 2002 ES`s for $11, 000 to $12,000 with low miles. I am thinking around $10,000 trade in. Check your local paper and see what they are going for. And take about $1,000 to $2,000 off that and that should give you a ball park price range. Good luck. What are you looking at to replace it with?

Let's summarize the difference between KBB and NADA this way:

KBB is typically lower for prices of cars than NADA, nor do they cover classic cars such as the old Chargers and Challengers so you are sometimes stuck with NADA. KBB is the best one to refer to if you have a post '82 motorcycle that you want a very accurate value of because it is in line with what you actually find.

NADA is typically higher for prices of vehicles and they cover alot of the old stuff pretty well, but forget them when it comes to the newer stuff and especially motorcycles (I don't care how old or new) because they list values for very high priced dual sports as next to nothing and prices for stuff a bit older 5 times higher... Not that you are dealing with motorcycles, but I think NADA is inconsistent and should be avoided.

If you really want to sell your car then do so for a combination of what you think it is worth and what they are selling for in your area if you sell it there or on eBay if you so choose. Call a dealer for one of those black book prices, but don't go get out the calculator and average KBB and NADA for your selling price.

Best of luck to you...

It's down to three either a Lexus IS300 or Acura TL-S or Audi A4... I want the Lexus but I have a kid and size on that car is a definite issue

car's aren't selling at their book prices in this economy. if you're a private seller, plan on getting about trade-in value. dealers can get about private sale value.

instead of holding blue/black book value as a true going value, i suggest going to autorader.com and checking out listed prices. however, many of the cars are overpriced (book prices) and will not sell.

a better guide is to go to ebay motors and do a search for your vehicle. then, when the search is done, on the left side, there is a link for completed auctions. click on this and it'll give you a list of what cars actually sold for.

hope this helps.
