Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Best car I ever had...got my money's worth!!
by Skylark-loving midwestern girl from Topeka, KS | May 14, 2008
I bought my '94 Skylark 3.1v6 Custom Sedan in Dec'94 with 28k miles on it. I drove it to about 200k miles, my husband drove it to about 290k and my stepson rolled it over 300k! I think when we quit driving it and let it rest in peace, it had 306k miles on it..original engine, original tranny. No major work ever done on either, just the regular maintenance stuff and minor repairs through the years. It averaged about 30-32 on the highway, which is what most of the miles were, obviously. I'd definitely recommend one if somebody needs a commuter car, or a good second car. I must say, I was sad when Buick announced they were discontinuing the Skylark after 1998!
