If you plan to place a used car for sale rather than trade it in to a dealer but you don't know what to ask for the car, try visiting the Kelley Blue Book or National Automobile Dealer's Association (NADA) websites.
These reputable sources provide interactive tools on their sites that can be used to price both used and new cars. The tool will guide you through a series of questions about the condition of the vehicle, mileage, and optional equipment before finally providing the market value.
*Most libraries carry current editions of the Kelley Blue Book and the NADA guides.
