Kelley Blue Book® (KBB) prices are often quoted by auto dealers.  Be sure to check which price is being quoted as KBB used car valuations can differ greatly depending on whether a car is being quoted for retail sale, private sale or trade in.  The other thing to keep in mind is that KBB does not buy cars and provides referrals to dealers that will try to sell you a car when purchasing yours. The dealer has control over the ultimate price paid to you after inspection of your vehicle.  Also, the Kelley Blue Book car value may not fully take into account damage on your vehicle. A dealer may quote an attractive KBB price online or over the phone, but they will reduce that price drastically if there is any damage to the car not disclosed or accident history in an online "vehicle history check" report.
