Does Kelley Blue Book car market value prices take into account the added fees shipping cars to the island? It seems that it does have my location inputted on the site with my zip code but I do not know if it's added in an additional 2k-ish to their pricing because we are on an island and that's the additional shipping fees that's part of the buying prices of cars here?
Does that make sense?
Like if KBB says the fair market value or private party value of a car is $7,000 does that mean on the island I need to add another $2,000 because the car was shipped here initially?
Thank you for your help.
I don't know about going back to the 70's.
I've got a 97 Toyota, no computer diagnostics required.
It's in great condition and I'm always getting asked if I wish to sell it.
I think TommySTX's above comment is correct.
A Toyota what?
Like previously stated, it depends on your definition of a computer. Trust me when I tell you your car has a computer. Whether it be a logic module to control for engine management or an ignition control module. Let's not forget it has oxygen sensors and a mass airflow meter that are part of fuel management. Then there's a throttle position sensor, coolant temp and a variety of others. There's something controlling it some where. Besides the feds mandated all vehicles in the US be OBD 2 compliant by 1996. If your vehicle has none of this then it's an illegal conversion.
By the way, manufacturers started utilizing electronic engine management late 70's.
I had a '05 Toyota Tacoma prerunner with 98k miles. Rear-ended at a stop light and totaled.
USAA gave me full KBB value $14k.
I used the money to buy a '15 Tacoma prerunner, 15k miles, $24k.
It took me a month to find the exact vehicle; access cab, 4 cyl, NOT white or black, etc.
I agree that they definitely hold their value and are easy to maintain.
you can't adjust the price of a used one just because it was shipped from the states.
Like heck I can't. Every used car that I have sold was sold for over KBB.
You can try for sure. If you tried charging shipping over KBB any where else they would tell you where you can ship your car.
