Kelley Blue Book Used Pricing Guide

Kelley Blue Book Used Pricing Guide

What is my car worth? It is an extremely common question, and it becomes an extremely important question to you financially whenever you are thinking of buying a new car. Whether you plan to sell your current car or trade it in to the dealer where you buy your next vehicle, understanding the value of your car is critical. You simply can't get the best deal for yourself without having that information at your fingertips. And consumers aren't the only ones who need to know vehicle values. New and used car dealers, banks, credit unions, and insurance companies also need to have that information. For nearly 100 years, Kelley Blue Book has been an acknowledged third-party source of vehicle values, first to the industry and then, in more recent years, to consumer car buyers and sellers as well.

What to Do if You've Been Lied to About Your Used Car

What to Do if You've Been Lied to About Your Used Car

Nobody likes to be lied to. It is especially bad if you’ve been lied to about your used car because that’s the kind of lie that doesn’t just provide you heartache; it can also cost you a lot of money. Fear of being lied to is one of the biggest reasons so many people dislike going to a car dealer. And the potential issue looms large with a used car dealer because, unlike new cars, used cars don’t typically carry any kind of warranty. You get what you get, and you have to live with it. So if the engine explodes on your way home from purchasing the car at the dealer, you might just get stuck with a giant bill you don’t want to have to pay. But despite what you might have heard, you often do have some recourse if the used car doesn’t turn out to be as the dealer represented it. So there is some hope, and there are some things you can do if you’ve been lied to about your used car.

Where Was My Car Built

Where Was My Car Built

When you think about the cars on the road today, one point of information that often comes up is the car's origins. You might tell others, "I have an American car" or "I like the quality of a Japanese car" or "those German cars are very cool." The interesting thing about that is the people who say those things might have very little understanding of where a specific car is actually being built and thus might be totally misrepresenting it. For instance, a vehicle that might be referred to as a "Japanese car," for instance a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry, was more than likely assembled in the United States, while a vehicle you might assume is an "American car" like the Chrysler Pacifica minivan is built in Canada. Because the auto industry has gargantuan global scope, these examples are not anomalies. Instead, they are very representative of how the industry works.
