Black book is Manheim. They actually sell cars. KBB is a dog and pony show. However, who cares if they show you black book pricing. i sell cars for a living and we regularly give people more than black book value. Just stick to your guns until you find a dealership who gives you what you want. Someone will do it, I promise. if you want me to come with you and make them lol, I will.

Then they should list that as what they use. On the local dealer's (The same one who tried to low ball me.) web site they have a section to find out what your trade is worth. Guess what they use? Yup, KBB. Seems a little misleading.

If you want an honest value go to NADA.COM. You will not be able to find Black Book prices online. NADA is your best shot.

I traded in my 2011 nissan titan baseline model (no 4x4) for my new 2013 ram 1500 4x4. Got a great price on the Ram plus got about $1500 more then kbb good valve was for the titan. Like others said just depends on the dealer i guess and what they wana do.

Wow! The local dealer has a nice '13 Ram RCSB I'm interested in........on the dealers web site they show Black Book appraisal was $7800 for our mint 66K mile '06 Saturn Vue 3.5L V6. This afternoon, the dealer offer $4000. I don't think so......so I'm still looking.

Saturn is going to be a tough sell because they don't make them anymore. A dealer will be less interested and for that reason offer you less. I'm thinking you're gonna be hard pressed to find a private buyer to go much more than 6K on a 7, soon to be 8, year old Saturn. You do have low mileage on your side, but it's still an 8 year old, discontinued car. Good luck with selling it.

I understand, and thought the Black Book would take all that into consideration.........guess not. Saturns haven't been made for several years but Honda still makes the 3.5L VTEC V6 and the 5 speed tranny that's in '04-'07 Saturn Vue's. Lots of good that does me.

The actual black book does. True Black Book values are not available to the public, so whatever they have on the website is just a con to get people in the door...

It funny how the dealer websites as well as the Ram website have a link to KBB. I had a dealer offer me a price that was so ridiculous I left. The Sales manager runs out the door and goes up $5500 in about 2 minutes. I still said no thanks.

Car buying is all smoke and mirrors. It stinks!

I just traded in my truck which is a 2011 sport fully loaded for a 2500 cummins and they gave me exactly the excellent range trade in value from kbb. My truck was well taken care of but I would not consider it excellent anymore with a dent on the door and a off road bumper. It all depends on the dealership, if they are smart they will keep you happy.
