Can you add ability for Kelly Blue Book automatic tracked values to use vehicle conditions other than excellent?
Currently, when you use Mint's feature to automatically track the value of your car via Kelly Blue Book's website (http://www.kbb.com/whats-my-car-worth/), Mint asks for your car's year, make, model, trim, and current millage. What Mint then shows and tracks as your car's value is the value from Kelly Blue Book for cars in "Excellent Condition" (assuming you sell to a private party). However, when you use http://www.kbb.com/whats-my-car-worth/ directly (instead of through Mint), their website also asks you to select one of four conditions for your car: "Excellent Condition", "Very Good Condition", "Good Condition", and "Fair Condition". It also shows explanations of what the criteria are for a car in each condition. When you select the condition, it then adjusts the value of your car accordingly.
When I compared the number Mint gave me for my car's value with what I got when I used the Kelly Blue Book website directly, I found that the value Mint was giving me was for a car in "Excellent Condition". However, based on the criteria on Kelly Blue Book's site, my car is not in "excellent condition", but rather just "good condition". The difference in value for those two conditions is quite large for my car. I think Mint should add a field on it's form when it asks you about your car to input which of the four conditions that your car is in and then get the appropriate value from Kelly Blue Book. Right now, just assuming everyone's car is in "Excellent Condition" will result in Mint showing significant overestimates of value for most peoples' cars (According to Kelly Blue Book's website, only 3% of all cars that they value actually fall into the "Excellent Condition" category).
