Edmunds or Kelly Blue Book?

Which gives the closest market price? I'm finding some pretty good differences.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

i gotta agree with jd. neither are really that great. i find it is better to look around at what similar vehicles in your area are going for. that will give you a better idea.

You don't know what they are seelling for, just what they are asking. I'm finding several thousand dollars difference (up to 20-25%) between KBB and Edmunds.

This is for pricing what I'd pay someone for their Wrangler.

For a private sale Edmunds has my Jeep valued at 12,500 and Kelly has mine at 13,600. I would lean toward Edmunds more than Kelly since I saw an 05 similar to mine selling for 13K. What I like about Kelly as opposed to Edmunds, is they get more into detail what your vehicle has for options.

KBB is much closer to market price. They're now updating their values based on auction prices (wholesale). NADA is a freaking joke. The only thing NADA will tell you is loan value. It's the only source banks and credit unions use for loan values. KBB will give you a pure and up-to-date value.

Also, if you're looking for a retail value that is determined by the seller based on a wholesale value. None of these (KBB, NADA or Edmunds) will give you an accurate retail value. You have to determine that on your own.

If you are looking for a wholesale type price, Carmax uses KBB/trade-in/average and then works their way down as they find things wrong. Your Jeep should be in inspected pretty good shape to get this price. I purchased my 1998 several months ago at this wholesale price and it was in decent shape. A few draw backs were new but small tires; no carpet (rhino lined); and older top.
