I just bought a 2001 Sequoia Limited and only paid 18,500

I'd look at the "Private Sale" section of the KBB.

Go to www.kbb.com (Kelley Blue Book) and plug in your car with all options.
You can find the Private Party Value, which is the value you could
reasonably expect to get if you put a For Sale sign in the window and parked
it on the corner. I think you'll find that Automax is stiffing you.

Edmunds and KBB and NADA are all competing services in the same market
space. To get the most accurate estimation of the value, one should check
all three. I find that KBB is the easiest to use, and allows me to plug in
each of the possible options that the car might have. Edmunds and NADA don't
have as much flexibility to input options as KBB has.

My point is, "screw KBB," is very myoptic.

KBB is set up to allow dealers to claim a higher valuation than really
exists.

The others base on sales, not smoke.

Sorry to hear about your 'tic'.
