Over 40 million used cars are sold each year, yet the average person has very little idea what to pay for one, or ask as a selling price. First published in 1926 for banks, auto dealers, and other businesses, the Kelley Blue Book quickly set the standard for used vehicle pricing guides. In 1993, the book was finally made available to the general public. Published twice a year, the Consumer Edition of the Kelley Blue Book Used Car Guide includes current trade-in values, private party values, and suggested retail values on over 10,000 models of used cars, trucks, and vans. Covering 15 model years, the book includes VIN numbers, original list price, easy-to-use equipment schedules with values for optional equipment, and a table of acceptable mileage ranges by year. The comprehensive "How to Use this Book" section offers helpful advice on buying a used vehicle.
