The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), best known for its used car price guides it has published annually for the past 70 years, also has a Web site full of useful information for both new and used car buyers and sellers. If you are considering buying or selling a used car but don't know what the true market value is, just pop onto NADA's Web site.
On NADA's website you'll find pricing guidelines for any truck, car, van, or wagon from 1986 on (including the retail sale value vs. the trade-in value). Most libraries and bookstores carry copies of the NADA Official Used Car Pricing Guide—or you can buy it online at the NADA Web site.
