Edmunds.com: Gas Guzzler Trade-In Calculator (sometimes spelled Edmonds.com)
Published On: August 3, 2008
ne of my favorite websites, www.edmonds.com, has added a Gas Guzzler Trade-In Calculator to its already rich car value related website! Here’s the Edmonds blurb: “You would like to save money on gas so you’re considering trading in your gas guzzler for a more fuel efficient car. This calculator shows how long will it take before you pay off the balance of a vehicle purchase and really begin saving money.” Here’s how it works: “Select the new or used fuel-efficient vehicle you would like to purchase. Edmond’s will provide the True Market Value® price and MPG for the vehicle you select. Manufacturer incentives are not included.”
Incidentally, Edmonds is the site that I use when advising clients as to whether they are getting a fair offer (is “fair offer” an oxymoron?) from the insurance company on their total loss as they provide you with the fair market value of your vehicle based on condition, options, mileage and location. They call this great feature the Used Car Appraiser and to use it, click here.
