Are you getting ready to sell your old clunker? Are you buying a new car? If so, how do you know what is a fair price to ask or pay?
For years, patrons would come to the reference desk for the little yellow books (the National Association of Auto Dealers, otherwise known as NADA) or the little Kelley Blue Books to check prices on new and used cars, including trade-in values. No longer must they come to the library, because you can access this information from home. You can either log-on to the New City Library database page,and click on these listings, or, skip that step and log-on directly to kbb.org or nadaguides.com.
Kelley Blue Books is a free site and does accept automobile advertising--no surprise there. However, it is very easy to find prices on new and used cars, customized to your specifications and zip codes. In addition, it is a trusted source that librarians have used for years.
