I think most people prefer to trade their cars in.

Its because of the IMV. It gives the dealers preferential treatment in the search results. I'm sorry but this is a major flaw in the "IMV"and unfairly punishes a private seller. My vehicle was over $2000 difference to the downside from the same vehicle sold by a dealer. It is also misleading to a buyer who will miss out on the best deal if the IMV is highly weighted in their decision making. All in all it serves no one to post different values for the exact same commodity. This is a BIG FAIL IMHO. Cargurus i hope you are reading this. FIX IT
