The real challenge with buying and selling used cars is trying to figure out the value before you do the transaction. Luckily, there are a lot of resources online to help you do just that.

Two of the most popular ones are Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book. When you enter specific information about your car on the site, it'll help you find out what to rate it as.

Another website that's a bit different is the National Automotive Dealers Association's site, which gets information when partner dealerships send the site information about cars and trucks they've sold and bought.

Check out the "Driver's Ed" segment above to find out more.

Recalls affect millions of vehicles every year.

A recall starts out when a manufacturer notices a pattern with a problem in a vehicle. Then, the issue is noted in a technical service bulletin so service technicians know how to fix the problem. As it gets bigger, they will issue a recall.

The airbag recall is a serious and dangerous one, but manufacturers will issue recalls for any number of things, like a faulty lock cylinder, a horn, or even a chipping door handle. If you're unsure if your vehicle has ever been affected by a recall, the easiest way to find out is to go to recalls.gov.
