If KBB says your truck is worth 51-58K, but the dealer only wants to give you 38K, for Pete's sake sell it yourself if you think you can get 51-58K.

Of course, do bear in mind the old cliche "the only 'book' that ever actually bought a truck is a checkbook!"

Also remember, dealers base their appraisals on actual auction results, not on KBB's mathematical formulas.

Dealers use black book

In metro areas, black book is almost to the penny, 75% of KBB trade in value.

That is what happens when supply is low and demand is up. No different than if you wanted to get top dollar if you sold your truck so why fault the dealership if they do the same?


Agree 100 %

That is exactly right, and a point that I don't think everyone is aware of.
