I expect the price to be lower because it blue books so very much lower that the good deal price stated on this site... What is the point of a blue book if not to show you the value of a car?

For example...



The blue book isn't the bible- it is just a suggestion- is this the only problem you have?

So basically this site is telling people that a fair deal is thousands of dollars over value and that a great deal is just slightly more than the vehicle is worth? Is this site run by sleazy dealerships, because that would at least make sense... I mean blue book couldn't be just a "Suggestion" as it's universal (Within a hundred dollars or so between different versions of blue book value site (NADA and Edmunds). I feel like while this might be my only problem it's a BIG one.

I wonder if loan officers are as easy going with the "values."
