Trade in Values of 2006 SLK55

I really didn't expect this but according to KBB, my car's value went up 6% since October 5th (Now at $29,400).

If you are in the market for a new car or plan to sell your ride, make sure to check the cars value regularly.
Have a wonderful holiday season

KBB is a joke in this economy specially with Luxury cars. Try to sell your car and you'll know.

I know. Didn't your price dropped to $25K with no taker yet? The points here is......KBB used cars price is no where near reality. Awhile back, I sold my CL55 for $30K after 8 months listed and the KBB said it worthy $42K.

KBB is just a reference / estimate of what a car is worth.. I see your point tho
Based on my own experience, I sold most of my cars close to KBB/NADA values in the past. If you have time and patient, I'm sure right buyer will come and purchase it. If you want to sell it quickly, you do what you have to do ...

I dropped the price to 25K and I actually have a lot of inquires about the car. As I stated on my thread, I do not really have to sell the car but if someone wants to buy it, he/she can..

What year was your CL? Dealer didn't offer you more than $30k for trade in?

It an 02' CL55 w'55k miles. Carsmax.com only give me $25k for trade-in because they said they can get the same car all days at Auction.

Most Dealerships in Michigan use Auction values to establish trade-in offers. These are typically lower than KBB. For a private sale, suggest looking at your local competition and price accordingly........
