Consumer Reports

The True Vendor Difference: Consumer Reports is an expert, independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to work for a fair, just, and safe marketplace for all consumers and to empower consumers to protect themselves.

The organization was founded in 1936 when advertising first flooded the mass media. Consumers lacked a reliable source of information they could depend on to help them distinguish hype from fact and good products from bad ones. Since then Consumer Reports has filled that vacuum with a broad range of consumer information. To maintain its independence and impartiality, Consumer Reports accepts no outside advertising and no free samples and employs several hundred mystery shoppers and technical experts to buy and test the products it evaluates.

Kelly Blue Book

The True Vendor Difference: Kelly Blue Book is the longest running valuation of cars available to consumers today.

While the Kelley Blue Book brand has remained focused on providing the trusted information needed in the buying and selling of vehicles, the breadth of what information is necessary has grown considerably. At one time, new car buyers used just MSRP as a reference point and later, the invoice price. But studies showed that there was a desire to know actual transaction prices for new cars. Kelley Blue Book went to work gathering and analyzing transactions from thousands of dealers across the United States, and in 2002, introduced kbb.com visitors to the Fair Purchase Price for new cars – what are smart buyers are really paying for them.
