I'm buying a used car. How much should I pay?

To determine what a fair price would be for a used car for sale, either at a dealership or by a private seller, check our Appraisal tool for its True Market Value. This tool, which can be found by clicking Car Research at the top of our site and selecting Trade-In Value & Pricing, will show you the current Trade-In, Private Party, and Dealer Retail Values. Keep in mind the following:

  • Trade-In: Estimated value if you trade the car in at a dealer
  • Private Party: Estimated value if buying from a private seller
  • Dealer Retail: Estimated value if buying from a dealer
