Get Used Car Values With Edmunds’ Car Value Appraisal Tool

A Quick Guide to the Edmunds Car Value Tool

The Edmunds calculator for used car values bases its pricing on data from a wide variety of sources, including dealer transactions, depreciation costs for unique automobiles, and consumer information. The appraised value is based on a number of factors, including year, make, model, trim, mileage, depreciation and features.
