As always these online values are only a guide. The more information you input - condition, mileage and options the more accurate the value will be, but as always the market determines the selling price. I always look at asking prices in ads to get a realistic upper end value.

Keep in mind that dealers ask way too much for used cars. I would offer them at least 10%-20% less than what they ask. In my area they tend to ask more than the new selling price for 2 year old cars!
