Private party good, dealer great.

Asked by Treasur2 Jun 07, 2019 at 12:55 PM about the 2018 Toyota Prius Three

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I see a private party whos price is lower than a dealer on a car that seems to
me to be exactly or better than the dealers. Yet the private parties rating is
"good" the "dealers" great.  What gives?

Dealer prices are always higher because they have business costs to pay.

So the algorithm works one way for dealers another for private parties?
