Full Answer

Consumers visiting Edmunds.com use an online tool to find the value of a used car by entering information regarding year, make, model, trim and the ZIP code in which a vehicle is located. Visitors enter further information such as style, color, options and condition. After these choices are submitted, information is displayed regarding the trade-in value of that specific used car, as well as its value to a third party.

Visitors to the Carfax website who wish to find purchasing information for used cars enter the make and model of a vehicle, and the distance they are willing to travel from their ZIP code in order to make a purchase. Check boxes are available that allow consumers to view cars based on reported accidents, number of owners, presence of service records, and whether the car was used for personal or leased use only, rather than as a fleet, rental or commercial vehicle. After submitting their choices, visitors can view a list of available cars that meet the criteria specified, and they can narrow those results based on factors such as price, color and mileage.
