i've used KBB to tell them that's what I want. Using the "trade-in" valuations and condition that is accurate. You might run the check over 2 or more weeks, seems to vary quite a bit each week, as it updates values each week. IT'll say at the bottom when that value is good until. If the dealer doesn't give you at least KBB trade in, i'd start shopping around for another dealer. Some low ball ya at first (using basic vehicle info) and leave out all the add-ons (leather, sunroof, Navigation, etc.) yours might have. FOR EXAMPLE, I had dealer value mine at 25K at first....came back with printouts from KBB saying worth $28K....they moved up to that number (but I didn't want to trade for the vehicle I had test drove all day, so no deal anyways). They might say they use Black Book or something else, but KBB is pretty standard of values to use to consumers trading in. Good Luck!
