Have you ever thought about where to find information on car values and what they are worth? Here are a couple of links to websites that can price cars based on the year, mileage, and options. This could also be great information for research when trying to purchase a new or used vehicle.
Kelley Blue Book will give you used car values based on trade in, selling out right, or suggested retail. They also have current news and reviews with videos on the latest cars for 2009 as well as a classified section to purchase or sell used cars. Another good resource to have is the ability to locate dealers who sell new and used cars in your area.
Alternative Vehicle Pricing
NADA (National Automobile Dealers Association) is a similar site when it comes to pricing current cars. The great benefit to using NADA is that you can research a variety of vehicles like, classic muscle cars, vintage sports cars, motorcycles, boats, and RV’s. If you have one of these vehicles to sell or are looking to purchase one you can get great use from the NADA guide.
Vehicle History Report
Before making a vehicle purchase, a good research tool to use is Carfax. This site has you input the 17 digit vehicle identification number, and they do all the work for you. The vehicle you are researching will show up a complete vehicle history good or bad. This will help you make a good investment and save headaches from purchasing a car with an extremely bad history and being a money pit.
Automotive New Car Articles
Another car pricing website that I found is Cars.com. More than using this site for new or used car pricing, I found a better reason for visiting cars.com. The research and writing staff are on their game when it comes to new car comparisons. Some of the articles that I would recommend reading are listed under “Top 10s and car lists”.
- Best & worst gas mileage
- Best and worst resale values
- Most popular new cars
- 2008’s Best-bet cars
- Best crash-test ratings
- Current rebates & hot deals
- Car photos and videos
- Auto recalls 1983-present
These are excellent articles with very informative information about recalls and interactive videos with 360 degree viewing on new car models. Safety related crash standard testing, which cars have good and bad fuel economy, and good and bad resale values.
