buying used cars.

Can someone provide a canadian website that will determine the retail value/market price/trade-in price of a used vehicle factoring in the model, year, milage, options and clear history.


I have been to www.nada.com. but everything is american price which is not accurate for canadian market since cars are cheaper there.

'canadian black book' is what most dealers use to determine a vehicle's wholesale value.

please note: wholesale, trade-in, and retail are all DIFFERENT VALUES.

some manufacturer websites like ford or toyota maybe have links when you go to build and price, and its usually around there as 'appraise trade-in'

no no, I want to know what a Used vehicle should cost.

For example, is it overprice for a used Audi A6 2003 selling for $25,000 with 80,000km on it. Dont want to get ripped off. www. Nada.com does that for me but it is in U.S dollars and U.S vehicle. I want a canadian site or book that shows me what dealer cost would be.

Canadian Black Book can give you whole and retail pricing just like NADA, however it's only available to paid users. Some of the auto manufacturer websites have stripped down versions somewhere in their websites that can give you wholesale value based on your options and mileage.

So do what we told you to do, and 'appraise your trade in' and that should give you wholesale value. Add $3-5000 to that and that is approximately what retail pricing should be. Retail prices are usually $3000 to $5000 above wholesale.

What I usually do to make sure one of our used cars is priced reasonably, is I'll look on craiglist or autotrader and see what similar vehicles are selling for. If all the 2009 escape xlt 4x4's with leather and approx 60,000kms are retailing for $27,000, then I'll know ours is a good deal if we've priced it at $25,000.

Keep in mind, Nada, black book, and all the other programs are not always on the money. I've had occasions where black book says $10,000 wholesale for a car, but the brokers would only pay $8000 for it because they say those cars are selling for $11,500 on average.

go to canadian black book and if the price of the used car is within +$3,000 of the black book value, it's considered a good deal.

FOr example, if a car is worth $5,000 and the owner is charging $8,000, it's an ok deal. If you get it for less, that's better. Most ppl on Craigslist start off charging way too much, but this gives you a basis to go by when determining what you should be paying
