What are Kelly Blue Book values?

Kelley Blue Book Values are vehicle resale values as determined by the folks at Kelley Blue Book (KBB). KBB determines vehicle values using recent vehicle sales transaction data as well as vehicle sales trends. AOL Autos has partnered with KBB to provide accurate resale values to our visitors. Find your car’s value by visiting AOL Autos' Kelly Blue Book section.
