    Thanks! The True Market Value (TMV) which is our estimate on the average price the car is being sold for in your region is $21,746 (not including taxes, fees, or an applicable rebates). Invoice is $21,595 so according to your sales price you're getting an excellent deal! That is a deal worth doing at this point in time!

    Hi sunnydd,

    We would be happy to evaluate your deal. We would need to know what your zip code is. Do you have an itemized list of all the costs (Sales price, wheels locks, auto theft, taxes, documentation fee, other fees, etc.)? This will allow us to search sales data in your area and look up the average fees by state from this document: https://www.edmunds.com/car-buying/what-fees-should-you-pay.html

    As a reminder, we recommend looking up the True Market Value (TMV). The TMV is the average price a car is being sold for (not including tax, title, license, fees, etc.). We recommend not paying more than TMV for any car. You can look up the TMV for your zip code by going to: https://www.edmunds.com/tmv.html.

    Thanks! I forgot to ask, is it a Coupe (2 door) or a Sedan (4 Door)? Also, is it an automatic or manual transmission?
