Many factors are going to be on your used car checklist, including price, quality, mileage, color, brand, and more. Oftentimes, one aspect that is overlooked is how a used vehicle is priced. A lot of consumers take the sticker price at face value and compare it to other similar vehicles. For example, let’s say you find a used Honda Civic for sale in Sioux Falls that you really like. You continue researching online and compare a few similar Civics.

As price is one major factor, it’s also very important to understand if (or how) that used vehicle was reconditioned, if it has a warranty, and if it’s a safe and reliable car for you to purchase. At Vern Eide, we provide all the price and product information on every vehicle sale so you know exactly what’s been inspected, fixed, and maintained. Why is it important to know how a used vehicle is priced? Apart from understanding why you’re spending that amount of money, it’s also beneficial so you can figure out if you’re getting a fair price or not.

Resources for Pricing Used Vehicles

In order to understand where used car pricing comes from you need to first look at the market (in this case, the Sioux Falls area), as this is what forms the baseline from which other prices are set. The vehicle price you see quoted is generally related to the price of the particular make and model that is being sold for at auctions in and around your area. At Vern Eide, we have access to technology and pricing from third parties such as NADA, Kelley Blue Book, Auto Exchange, Edmunds, and many more. Our team is consistently reviewing the fairest prices of every used vehicle we offer in relation to each specific vehicle that has been sold.
