About This Quiz

One of the most daunting tasks in the world can be buying a used car. At least a new car comes with an MSRP that's pretty standard across the board, depending on the options you go with. But a used car? You can find the exact same make and model with a price range of thousands, if not tens of thousands depending on the car. It's easy to get in over your head if you're not a car person. Lucky for us, there are things like Kelley Blue Book! By comparing prices across the board for identical models, they can determine a reasonable value range for any car in any condition. That way, you know that a 2019 Toyota Camry and a 2000 Hummer H1 are not worth the same amount no matter what the seller says.

Having an idea of the market value of cars takes some practice and some skills of observation. You need to know if a coupe is worth more or less than a sedan, or if the crew cab is worth less than the sport cab. If a hybrid ups the value or takes it down. But if you think you can peg some prices as too low, too high, or just right, take the quiz, and we'll see how smart you really are.
